The Boundary between Plant Biostimulants and Plant Protection Products: Multiple-Use Substances


T he same substance may fulfill different functions, depending on the context. This simple principle is at the root of the wide range of products sold today using different combinations of the same materials and substances. The same principle applies to agricultural inputs: although they may share some ingredients, they provide different functions to crops and farmers. As long as components are safe, they should be allowed to be used in EU Plant Biostimulants, regardless of other products where they contribute to other functions.
