Summary

Traditionally, coastal communities worldwide have been using drift seaweed as soil amendment. The fertilizing effect of composted seaweed is dependent on their biochemical composition, mineralization pattern and the synchronization of nutrients with the crops' demand. Seaweed is commercially available, and considered as a resource for organic farming.
