His first studies on seaweeds and plant growth started in the 1960s, stimulated by gardening as well as scientific interests. In the 1980s, several studies were undertaken relating to the potential uses of seaweeds from Orkney. This led, in the 1990s, to the development of quality controlled seaweed harvesting and processing techniques in Orkney, linked to a wide range of international trials involving both conventional and organic growers. More recently, and particularly exciting, has been the high performance of the trial products in two additional markets - sports turf and glasshouse crops. From experience gained in these many years of investigation, the present unique and enhanced product has evolved.

The Head Office and production facilities are based on the northern Orkney Isle of Westray, using freshly harvested weed from the waters around the island.The carefully selected seaweed is processed without the use of chemicals.

Product modifications to suit different markets, together with storage, sales and distribution are based in Central Scotland (Fife); including provision of relevant technical services.

The Products

The liquid seaweed extract benefits plant health and growth in a number of direct and indirect ways. Its main activity is the enhancement of root growth and many of the other effects recorded are a function of the improved root system generated. The extract also enhances uptake of essential nutrients and other compounds across membranes, eg enhancing of uptake across the leaf surface when applied as a foliar spray.

It has been developed from first principles to optimise known growth promoting properties of seaweeds - based on science not " muck and magic".

Liquid seaweed can be considered the crop "body builder" of natural agriculture and horticulture.

A more extensive range of liquid products has been produced, combining the natural properties with special chemical modification, particularly for the turf market. Although these products are no longer pure organic products their efficacy of action results in the reduction of chemical application, thence risk to both produce and environment.
