Biostimulants: ‘Feeding a plant additional amino acid acts like a vitamin drink’

From glyphosate to neonicotinoids many crucial controls have come up against scrutiny lately, leaving farmers in the dark about what may or may not be available in the years to come – on top of the increasing threat of chemical resistance. As a result, there’s been growing interest in alternative products like biostimulants which offer the potential to increase yields and boost crop health – reducing the reliance on chemistry that could indeed become limited in supply.
