Grape growing, vine health & vineyards
Nutrition plays a vital role in vineyards, as it impacts vine growth, crop yield, berry composition and ultimately wine quality. Due to the importance of this, vine growers are always looking for ways to keep the vines healthy and meet the nutrition requirements.

viticulture & Sargasol
Cost is an important factor, because the nutrition of the plant is an area that vine growers want to get right and meet the needs of the plant, but without the hefty costs involved in the process.
Two types of fertilisers can be used, synthetic and organic. Synthetic give nothing back to the plant on composition, but they do target nutrients required, and can be cost effective. Organic fertilisers traditionally, tends to be skill based rather than product based because the nutrients provided tend to have more variance, rather than providing a stable nutrient uptake. This then requires greater observation and engagement but the upside is when they compose they are giving more to the plant, naturally.
Organic fertilisers are preferred due to the product being nature based and that less chemicals are being used, with added benefits in composition.
As an organic fertiliser, Sargasol offers a natural product, derived from Sargassum Seaweed, which is grown in plentiful proportions in coastal and backwater systems. As such the nutrients provided in the product give a stable consistency and allows vine growers the opportunity to use an organic product and not have to be concerned with the skills required for stable nutrient uptake.
Sargasol & Improved Grapes
It is important for vine growers to have access to appropriate nutrients, that are readily available for the right growth stage for vine use. Sargasol meets these requirements as the phytohormones present will ensure the timely switch from vegetative to flowering stage to ensure higher yields.
The dissolved nutrients and phytohormones work together to bring out the genetic potential of the crop with respect to the quantity and quality of the yield.
Saragasol aids in cell elongation, cell division, ensures active vegetative growth by increasing the nutrient uptake efficiency of the crop.
When applied during flowering stage Sargasol works to prevent flower and fruit drop significantly.
Where Sargasol stands out is the added properties this product provides, making this a cost effective solution to grapevines. These include:-
- Improved water uptake, which is important for vines as the generally do not benefit from large amount of water.
- Frost and saline resistance
- Provides resistance to plant diseases
- Reverses or stops the pollutants of contaminated soil
- Enables plants to recover from stress
- Gives the plants the ability to recover from pest attacks faster
- Aids in flood or relocation stress
- Biodegradable and
- Is a natural pesticide.

Sargasol is highly compatible with other organic and synthetic pesticides except the ones that contain Calcium. Hence is can be mixed along with other pesticides when used on the crop.
Sargasol provides the following nutrient elements:-
The phytohormones present contribute significantly in the yield and quality of the fruits, are:-
Overall Sargasol provides a stable organic fertiliser that meets the requirements of grape vines to hence the vine growth, crop yield, berry composition and ultimately wine quality, through a natural means. It provides plant health at every stage, including composition and is cost effective because of the added benefits of aiding the plant to recover from stresses, improved water uptake, frost and saline resistance, resistance to plant diseases and natural pest control abilities.
