Kelpene helps plants to adapt to diverse conditions

Performance Nutrition, a division of LidoChem, Inc., proudly announces Kelpene, a new line of products developed to help plants adapt to diverse environmental conditions. With products in the line suitable for use on field crops, turf, ornamentals and nursery crops, research shows the Kelpene line of products support plant health, increase yields, improve nutrient uptake, enhance resiliency, and encourage robust root development by adapting to diverse environmental conditions — high heat, intense sunlight, shade, extreme cold, drought, salinity, anaerobic conditions, and water stress.

Kelpene products are blends of sea kelp extracts and plant extracts, primarily terpenes, derived via a unique proprietary extraction process. Kelpene plant extracts are derived from plants that thrive in diverse environmental conditions.

Benefits of Kelpene products:

Environmental adaptability

Improved stress management

Increased resilience

Enhanced tissue responsiveness

Elevated nutrient use efficiency

Higher yields

Increased root mass and root tips

Improved nutrient uptake

Better allocation of plant energy

With Kelpene, the keyword is “adaptive.” Kelpene’s plant extracts supplement the plant’s own supply of these organic compounds, helping turf, ornamentals, and crops naturally adapt to, and be more resilient against, changing environmental stress.

“Kelpene’s natural plant extracts act as signal molecules within the plant, initiating almost every plant process, and, act as messengers using emissions to promote plant-beneficial activity by microorganisms and insects,” said Don Pucillo, general manager of Performance Nutrition, a division of LidoChem, Inc., based in Hazlet, New Jersey.

Product line specifics:

Kelpene GPX: for all kinds of crops plus turf, ornamentals, nursery crops

Kelpene CSW: for field crops such as corn, soy and wheat
