Plant biostimulants

Plant biostimulant means “a material which contains substance(s) and/or microorganisms whose function when applied to plants or the rhizosphere is to stimulate natural processes to benefit nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress, and/or crop quality, independently of its nutrient content.” Source: EBIC.

The main biostimulant products are based on: microorganisms, fulvic/humic acids, amino acids, seaweed extracts, protein hydrolysates, metabolites and plant extracts.
