"Science in Sync with Nature"
Much like the daily vitamins and supplements that we humans take each day, biostimulants helps deliver needed nutrients to the roots in times of stress.
Some stress can be due to insects or pest like mole crickets or nematodes, and other stress can be due to heat, drought or disease. Each one of these stresses either remove certain nutrients from the soil or disables the roots ability to extract needed materials. When this happens the plant or its roots will not produce enough vitamins, amino acids or hormones. This is where the biostimulants take over to aid in the recovery by supplementing those elements in the soil the plant is having difficulty in producing. Much like when we have a cold, Vitamin C has shown to deliver deficient elements back to the body by helping absorption. This is also true with biostimulants.
The Effects of Humates and Biostimulants on Plants
Biostimulants and Humates have shown to influence several metabolic processes such as respiration, photosynthesis, nucleic acid synthesis and ion uptake. Within the cell, humates and humic acid can effect and influence the production of RNA which is essential for several biological processes. These have also shown to improve chlorophyll content within the plant, which produces greener leaves. In several research studies, biostimulants and humates have shown to decrease such problems like chlorosis by enabling the plant to uptake minerals already available within the soil profile. Also they have been shown to enable antioxidant activity in both the soil and within the plant, especially when the plants are under stress.
What will Biostimulants do for me?
In many cases, biostimulants utilized on lawns and turf will recover quickly from stress and rejuvenate the root system. This will show a greener, richer, thicker lawn or turf surface.
