Abstract:

Plant nutrients are classified as major (Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg) and sulfur (S). They are also enquired in relatively large amounts but are less likely to be deficient. Micronutrients [boron(B), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), manganese (Mn), molybdenum (Mo) and zinc (Zn)0. Considering ill effects of chemical fertilizers and slow release of nutrients by soil applied organic fertilizers; foliar application of organically chelated micronutrient fertilizers can be an ideal option to nourish the crops by avoiding short term mineral deficiencies. Fertilizers derived from seaweeds are found to be superior to chemical fertilizers due to high level of organic matter, micro and macro elements, vitamins and fatty acids. Seaweed extracts are allowed as fertilizer for organic farming production practices whereas synthetic chemical fertilizers are prohibited for organic food production. Fertilizers derived from seaweeds are found to be superior to chemical fertilizers due to high level of organic matter, micro and macro elements, vitamins and fatty acids. Hence the review dwells on utility of sea weed as plant nutrition.
