  • SummaryInvestigations have been undertaken into the manurial values of two New Zealand seaweed species,Pachymenia himantophora (Rhodophyceae) andDurvillea antarctica (Phaeophyceae). Chemical analyses have shown thatDurvillea is richer thanPachymenia in cations and chloride but poorer in nitrogen and sulphur. When applied to soil in the form of dry mealPachymenia was found to stimulate the growth of tomato seedlings on some soils and depress it on others;Durvillea, on the other hand, depressed… CONTINUE READING
