The Advantages of
is continuing the pioneering work of Dr. Maynard Murray.
Dr. Murray's book, Sea Energy Agriculture, published in
1976, was largely ignored. This book recounts Dr. Murray's
experiments and presents his incredible findings. Recently,
Acres USA picked up the cause and published an interview
with Don Jansen in Sept., 2003. Since that interview, the
interest in, and use of Dr. Murray's and Don Jansen's Sea
Energy Agriculture; has skyrocketed.
Results being experienced
worldwide are stunning;
- cut your Nitrogen use by at least 50%!
from seed to full growth from
$5.00 an acre!!
- increased yields
- plant vigor
- pest and disease
- longer shelf-life
- superior taste
- all Non-Toxic Nature Friendly

It is important to realize that plants do not recognize the
difference between organic and inorganic fertilizers. Their tiny
root hairs can absorb only nutrients that have been broken down into
inorganic, water soluble forms. It makes no difference to your
tomato plant if the atom of nitrogen it is absorbing has come from a
compost pile or a fertilizer factory. There are, however,
disadvantages to all forms of fertilizer except
Advantages - Organic nutrients include such things as cow, sheep,
poultry and horse manure. Bone meal, blood meal, compost and green
manures will also provide nutrients for your plants.
There is less danger of over-fertilization by adding decomposed
organic materials to a garden. It provides a slow release of
nutrients as micro-organisms in the soil break the organic material
down into an inorganic, water soluble form which the plants can use.
The addition of organic material improves soil structure or
Disadvantages – For the most part, organic fertilizer is not
immediately available to the plants. As noted above, this
“slow-release” feature can be an advantage. However, if there is an
immediate need for nutrients, organic fertilizer cannot supply them
in a hurry. Furthermore, information on the amount of nutrients and
the exact elements in an organic fertilizer such as manure is not
readily available to the user. In contrast, when you apply
manufactured inorganic fertilizer you know the kinds and amounts of
the elements it contains, and this allows you to be more precise in
meeting a plant’s nutritional needs.
The possibility of nitrogen depletion is another drawback of organic
fertilizer. Because of complex bacterial action, the addition of a
large amount of organic material can cause a temporary nitrogen
depletion in the soil and therefore in the plants.
Advantages- The primary advantage of using packaged commercial
fertilizer is that the nutrients are immediately available to the
plants. As well, the exact amounts of a given element can be
calculated and given to plants.
Disadvantages – Commercial fertilizer, especially nitrogen, is
easily washed below the level of the plant’s root system through the
leaching of rain and irrigation. An application which is too heavy
or too close to the roots of the plants may cause “burning, a
process of desiccation by the chemical salts in the fertilizer. As
well, overly heavy applications of commercial fertilizers can build
up toxic concentrations of salts in the soil, thus creating chemical
It is well understood that there are radical health differences
between plants and animals found in the sea and those on land. In
the ocean, life thrives on a precisely balanced diet of inorganic
nutrients while our landlocked environment has been increasingly
unable to provide plants and animals with the full compliment of
minerals necessary for health and longevity.
Ocean water holds the perfect balance essential for
sustaining life. Quantitative analysis of the elements in our blood
and those in unadulterated seawater has revealed a strikingly
similar profile, including a substantial presence of sodium
chloride. It is interesting to note that salt, when in proper
balance with other nutrients, is actually beneficial to plant
The ocean is the only source where most of the known elements are in
a perfectly balanced solution. Until now, soil and hydroponics
growers have normally used fertilizers and nutrient solutions based
on only three major elements: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK).
More recently, the agricultural and scientific community has begun
to recognize the importance of micronutrients so that progressive
growers utilize up to 16 elements in their plant nutrient
