Purest seaweed In the world

Comes from New Zealand

Waikaitu harvests and processes seaweed Undaria Pinnatifida (common name Wakame) from Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand to produce food, pharmaceutical ingredients and soil nutrition products.

Due to our low population density, environmental focus and very little heavy industry we have one of the cleanest environments in the world. And we believe that our seaweed has the lowest contaminants compared to other products.


NZBioActive Biostimulant

For Organic or Conventional growers who want a great value product to improve the health and productivity of their crops.
Waikaitu uses 100% wild harvested and processed seaweed to create completely natural foliar biostimulant and soil conditioner. It has a stimulative effect on plants, especially during early growth and periods of stress such as drought, heat, pest pressure or frost. It stimulates cell division, root formation and improves fruit size. International research confirms usefulness of brown seaweed like Undaria in improving soil microbial activity which leads directly to better plant health.

In independently conducted research on Strawberries and Lettuces in California NitroBoost was used to replace up to 50% of Ammonium Nitrate with a much smaller amount of NitroBoost and still maintain plant growth rates, yields and leaf nutrient levels.  This led to over 60% reduction in Nitrate leaching and ammonia volatilization.

Undaria Pinnatifida (Wakame) is an invasive species in New Zealand. It came to our country in the ballast water of cargo ships and has spread throughout the coastal waters. We collect this seaweed only from mussel farms which are man made structures and not from natural surfaces. Undaria colonizes all hard surfaces, displacing native seaweed and altering the ecological balance in marine environment. For mussel farmers Undaria causes many issues by displacing and choking mussels, reducing harvesting productivity and increasing fuel usage and maintenance costs. By supporting our company through your purchase of our products you are helping us to reduce the impact of this seaweed on our environment and a way of life.
