The Use of Organic Biostimulants to Reduce Fertilizer Use, Increase Stress Resistance, and Promote Growth
Graeme P. Berlyn and Saroj Sivaramakrishnan
1996: New England, CT
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 well watered and heavily fertilized plants little effect of these compounds may be manifested.
