HOW BIOSTIMULANTS CONTRIBUTE TO SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

The crop treated with a biostimulant is visible more healthy and abundant.Biostimulants are among some of the earliest agricultural inputs used by humanity. However, little was done to refine and improve their qualities and efficacy for many years. During the past decade, an increasing amount of research has been undertaken by biostimulant producers and their partners to identify new bioactive compounds and beneficial microorganisms and to better understand how biostimulants can enhance crop performance and quality under a wide range of growing conditions.

While biostimulants are still associated by many people with organic farming and organic gardening, they now have an important role to play in conventional agriculture as a complement to crop nutrition and crop protection. Biostimulants help address some of the most important challenges facing global agriculture in coming years:
