What is a biostimulant and what are the benefits?

Biostimulants are materials which contain substances or microorganisms which, when applied to plants, stimulate natural processes which benefit nutrient uptake, metabolism efficiency and tolerance to abiotic stress – and so improve crop quality.

Backed by trials and independently verified, biostimulants are set to play an increasingly important role in the nursery. Forthcoming EU fertiliser regulations will help growers by requiring label claims for biostimulant products to be supported by evidence.

This creates an onus on manufacturers, like Syngenta, to demonstrate to regulators and growers that product claims are justified. With that in mind, you can rest assured that Hicure has been through rigorous testing to support the information here, and that your subsequent use of Hicure will benefit your crop.
