Acknowledging the Multiple Identities of Component Substances and Microorganisms Is Critical to Innovation in Biostimulants


"D ual-use substances and materials” are product components that can potentially be associated with multiple effects depending on the formulation and use of the final product. The presence of a single component cannot necessarily predict the effects of a formulated product. Therefore the classification of the product should be based on the claim and supported by other parameters like the relative concentration of ingredients, dosage, timing, etc.
