The use of organic biostimulants to reduce fertilizer use, increase stress resistance, and promote growth

  title={The use of organic biostimulants to reduce fertilizer use, increase stress resistance, and promote growth},
  author={S. Sivaramakrishnan},
High quality organic biostimulants can stimulate plant growth, providing excellent growth and yield, with up to a 50% reduction in fertilizer use. These compounds are essentially, a stress vitamin mix for plants. They were developed for use in tissue culture of refractive or sensitive tissue explants. Research and practice has shown that these compounds can work under soil conditions, as well as in tissue culture. They work best on plants under water, cold, nutrient, and/or biotic stress. In…

Humectants as Post-plant Soil Amendments: Effects on Growth and Physiological Activity of Drought-stressed, Container-grown Tree Seedlings

One-year-old seedlings of red maple (Acer rubrum L.) and yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.) were treated with Hydretain ES™(HydES) or EcoSential™(EcoS) applied as a soil drench. A progressive

Type of Bio-Stimulant and Application Method Effects on Stem Quality and Root System Growth in L.A. Lily

The three bio-stimulants gave performances similar among them and higher than the water only according to some of the parameters: the crop cycle came early, the leaves resulted more expanded in the lamina and greener, the flower buds had a higher diameter; the root system showed a higher length development.

Drought Stress and Paper Birch (Betula Papyrifera) Seedlings: Effects of an Organic Biostimulant on Plant Health and Stress Tolerance, and Detection of Stress Effects With Instrument-Based, Noninvasive Methods

We conducted a progressive-drought greenhouse experiment, using potted paper birch (Betula papyrifera) seedlings in their third year of growth, to investigate whether a commercially available organic


Antioxidants in Higher Plants

The chemistry and protective potential of sulfhydryl and hydroxyl compounds are emphasized and how tools of molecular biology may further clarify antioxidant function and response to stress are discussed.
