Agricultural biostimulants include diverse formulations of compounds, substances and other products that are applied to plants or soils to regulate and enhance the crop’s physiological processes making them more efficient. Biostimulants act on plant physiology through different pathways than nutrients to improve crop vigour, yields, quality and post-harvest storage. Biostimulants improve the efficiency of plant metabolism and the assimilation and translocation of nutrients to increase plant tolerance to and recovery from abiotic stresses.
Micronutrients are essential for plant survival, but are required in very small quantities. Micronutrients are applied to soils or are foliar applied. It is possible that under certain conditions, plants cannot uptake from the soil the quantities of micronutrients necessary to support growth; using a foliar applied nutritive solution from Axter Agroscience may solve the problem. The OLIGO line of nutritive solutions was created to supply micronutrients to crops in order to prevent deficiencies from appearing or to correct deficiencies that have already appeared.
