Shamrock Seaweed Fertiliser

I have been pleased to source Shamrock Seaweed Fertiliser for my stud paddocks after a gap of nine years and have been amazed by the improvement within six months of application. The general density has increased and using the Horse Buckets for the first time the horses have actually taken to a supplement. I would happily recommend both products.”

Shamrock Seaweed Fertiliser

Shamrock Seaweed fertiliser (25kg and 500kg bags) is a pure natural fertiliser, harvested from calcified seaweed (Lithothamnium calcareum), and is long established and well proven as an excellent soil conditioner. Chemical fertilisers (N, P, K) make a meaningful contribution to soil management, however, some chemicals, especially nitrogen, can make the soil acidic and has a coarsening and bitter influence on grass. Therefore, an effective grassland fertiliser program also needs to include a component to combat acidity, improve palatability of higher feed value and supply necessary trace elements and minerals for full production, fertility and health.

Application of Shamrock Seaweed fertiliser is a cost effective and positive step towards avoiding the heavy cost of correcting a nutrient deficiency, or losses associated with impaired crop production. Application rate is 200kg/acre every 5 years.

  • Bacteria and earthworms break down organic matter providing extra nutrients to the root
  • Improves water retention in dry, coarse soils that cannot hold water
  • Excellent re-growth after cutting and grazing to increase rotations
  • Better yield, quality and palatability
  • More resistant to stress and disease

Shamrock Seaweed Fertiliser

I used Shamrocks seaweed fertiliser for the first time last year. I was extremely surprised with how lush the grass was afterwards. Eventhough I was told that it's primary purpose was to bring all the minerals into the soil, it actually grew the grass very well also. All our horses are doing superbly well. Our fertility levels were at 100% and the foals did brilliantly. I will be using more this year and couldn't recommend highly enough.”

I started using Shamrock fertiliser in 2016 and having used it on a few paddocks have noticed a better growth of grass, with increased density, the stock grazing those paddocks did exceptionally well. This year I applied the seaweed fertiliser to some more paddocks, and have been impressed by the improvement in sward again. I have also started using the mineral buckets, and the mares and fillies using these buckets has tremendous coats, and are in great condition, what has surprised me is how long the buckets last once the horses have been using them for a while.”
