Abstract
CYTEX (SM3), a blend of selected seaweeds from unpolluted Atlantic Coast of Westen:' Ireland, contains cytoltinins and low concentrations of major and minor nutrients. The cytoltinins increase plant vigour (Brain, 1973; Br:ain, et aI., 1973 and 1975; Blunden et aI., 1977; Featonnby, 1984 and Tay, 1985) at extremely low concentrations. It is catalytic in many physiological processes of plants besides having nutritive values. Betains which have been isolated in (Blunden, 1986) have similar 'activities as cytokinins in plants.
