What does plant Bio-stimulants mean?

Plant bio-stimulants are a complex blend of substances and micro-organisms or a blend of different micro-organisms, which when applied on plant foliage or to the rhizosphere, help to stimulate natural processes that enhance nutrient uptake, nutrient use efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress conditions, and crop yield quality.

What distinguishes plant bio-stimulants from other plant inputs?

  1. Though there are nutrients in bio-stimulants, they work with different mechanisms than fertilizer
  1. Bio-stimulants act only on the plant’s growth and do not have any direct actions against pests or disease
  1. Plant bio-stimulants are complementary to crop nutrition and crop protection

The application of plant bio-stimulants can start from the seed germination stage and continue throughout the plant’s life cycle

The application of plant bio-stimulants can start from the seed germination stage and continue throughout the plant’s life cycle

◙ Bio-stimulants can be applied to almost all plants like field crops, vegetable crops, orchard trees, etc.

◙ Effective at all vegetative and reproductive growth stages

◙ Bio-stimulants can improve the efficiency of the plant’s metabolism to induce yield increases and enhance crop quality

◙ May construe water use more efficiently

◙ Help in enhancing soil fertility by fostering the development of complementary soil micro-organisms

The benefits are not limited here, there are many other benefits and yet to discover many

Method of application and quantity

Method of application and quantity

  1. Bio-stimulants are available in different forms of liquid, soluble powder, and granule
  1. Liquids and Soluble powders are mostly applied to the crop foliage and applied through the drip irrigation system

3)Granules are mostly applied to the soil along the rhizosphere

  1. The quantity/dose is defined based on the type of ingredients, the number of ingredients, and field studies. Before application of bio-stimulants, labels and directions of use should be referred for best results

5)Bolt G is a bio-stimulant available in the market that can be applied to field crops like Rice, Cotton, and vegetables at the dose of 4 Kilograms per acre. For vegetables like Tomato, Chilli, and Hotpepper the dose to be applied is 6 Kilograms per acre. It is recommended to apply the second time for more effectiveness.
