Summary

This presentation holds information how seaweed residuals can be used as fertilisers for leek and oats. What kind of commercial fertiliser products are available from the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI)? How seaweeds have been exploited through ages as fodder and fertiliser along the Norwegian coast but lost value due to modernisation of agriculture and production of mineral fertilisers. How seaweed (algae fibre) and fish bones can be applied as a fertiliser and how they have affected growth and nutritional parameters in ryegrass and leek plants.
