The Benefits of Biostimulants

As a grass plant grows and evolves, it is met with many obstacles that could interfere with a healthy growth cycle. Abiotic stress is a non-living environmental factor that interferes with the growth cycle of plants and their maturation. Some relevant examples of abiotic stress are drought, salinity, temperature fluctuation, nutrient deficiencies, and high winds, but there are many more. Whereas, living disturbances known as biotic stress factors are seen as insects and diseases. The significant impact of these abiotic stress factors ultimately hinders the performance and physiology of a plant. An effective way to counteract these interferences is the use of biostimulants.
