Biostimulants are substances that are efficient in enhancing nutrient efficiency, abiotic stress tolerance and/or crop quality traits.
These products contain a variety of organic compounds including humic acids, fulvic acids, seaweed extracts, amino acids, vitamins and others, which vary from product to product.
Biostimulants are more readily being integrated into production practises to improve and modify physiological processes in plants to optimise productivity. They work by:
- Promoting plant growth
- Improving soil chemical and physical properties to enhance the growing environment for crops
- Encourage biological activity proliferation to stimulate plant productivity
- Reduce any abiotic stresses crops may be subject to
