Can Phycocyanin be Used on Crops?

- Mar 15, 2019-

In addition to being widely used as a pigment and biochemical for foods and cosmetics, phycocyanin can also be used on crops.

The phycocyanin-rich nutrients can significantly increase seed germination rate, germination potential, break dormancy, and early budding. It can also reduce crop seedling diseases and insect pests and enhance its ability to resist natural disasters.

The phycocyanin contains a large number of active factors that can strongly adsorb, complex, replace and stabilize various nutrients, moisture in fertilizers and soils to ensure that nutrient water is better absorbed by crops, reducing fertilizer loss and passivation. Increased fertilizer utilization.


The phycocyanin can awaken the growth instinct of the crop and immediately accelerate the growth rate of the leaves, buds, root hairs, stems, rods, flowers and fruits of the plants. The phycocyanin has a strong chelating ability with iron, zinc, copper, molybdenum, manganese, calcium, magnesium, potassium and other elements in the soil, which can greatly increase the utilization of these elements. It also increases the activity of various enzymes in the crop and the chlorophyll content further enhances photosynthesis.

Therefore, phycocyanin can significantly promote photosynthesis of plants and promote crop growth.
