What are plant biostimulants and why are they useful?

More and more people are talking about biostimulants and their contribution to food production. Our new video explains to those who want to learn about biostimulants exactly what they are, how they can support farmers and the food supply chain and how they are registered on the EU market.

What role do plant biostimulants play in food security?

Currently, we do not have global food security due to a number of climate and geopolitical factors, as well as availability and affordability of some crop inputs for farmers. Biostimulants can support global food security by increasing crop yield and relieving plants from climate-related stress. Biostimulants also improve nutrient use efficiency, so they could play an important role in providing nutritious food for everyone if more readily available to growers.
