Biostimulants To Witness A Huge Market Growth In The Coming Years – Biostimulants Market Report

Biostumulants – A brief introduction-

Biostumulants can be defined as any substance or microorganism applied to plants with the aim of enhancing their nutrition efficiency, abiotic stress tolerance and crop quality traits irrespective of its nutrient contents.

The definition of Biostumulants extends to commercial products that contain mixtures of such microorganisms and/or substances. The word Biostumulants as per horticultural experts is those substances that promote plant growth without the necessity of nutrients, soil improvers or pesticides. G.L. Kauffman, D.P. Kneivel, T.L. Watschke (2007) in a peer review paper defined the word Biostumulants as “materials other than fertilizers that promotes plant growth when applied in low quantities.”
