What is Bio-Stimulant?

Plant biostimulants contain substance(s) and/or micro-organisms whose function when applied to plants or the rhizosphere is to stimulate natural processes to enhance/benefit nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress, and crop quality.

Type of Bio-Stimulant

Type of Bio-Stimulant
Type of Bio-Stimulant Features
Acids Amino Acids 1. Promote protein synthesis and movement of     nutrients
2. Physiological and non-physiological stress     prevention
Humic Acids 1. Improvement of soil fertility
2. Promote utilization of nutrients
3. Promoting survival and development of roots
Extract Seaweed Extracts 1. Yield enhancement of natural plant hormones
2. Stimulates the growth and encourages micro     organism activity
3. Promotion of crops resistant to stress
Etc Sugar Alcohol 1. Minimize the loss of nutrients by means of     a mobile Phloem, museums, go directly to     the growing points of nutrients
2. Penetration and diffusion promoting the body     as a natural surfactant
Micro-Organism 1. Development of roots
2. Inhibit production of harmful pathogens
3. Soil fertility improvement and promotion

Differences Bio-Stimulant and Fertiliser

Differences Bio-Stimulant and Fertiliser
Fertiliser Bio-Stimulant
Usage Much(100-300kg N/ha) little(0.5-1kg N/ha)
Process Soil fertilization and foliar application Foliar spray, soil drench and soil fertilization
Price reasonable expensive
Technical expertise No need Needed

Advantages of Bio-Stimulant comparing Fertiliser

Advantages of Bio-Stimulant comparing Fertiliser
Advantages Effects Mechanisms
Growth and Yield 1. Effectively used for the growth of stems     and roots
2. Promote flowering and flower bud     differentiation
3. Promote fruiting and yield increase
1. Facilitating movement of nutrients
2. Promote photosynthesis
3. Promote flowering and flower bud     differentiation
4. Facilitate the movement of sugars and     accumulation
Quality 1. Crop Quality Improvement
2. Reduce the accumulation of nitrogen,     reduction of soil degradation
1. Protein synthesis, photosynthesis, the     assimilation and promote
2. Flavor, texture improved
The use of nutritional substances 1. Land utilization improved
2. Improve transport of nutrients
1. The use of nutritional substances in     accordance with the chelating effect
Stress 1. Magnetic resistance Crop Promotion
2. Promote resistance to temperatures, salt,     drought, cold, etc.
3. Promotion of improved root development     and nutrient
1. Promotion of improved root development     and nutrient
2. The stabilization of cell membranes and     osmotic substance
3. Promoting enzyme system for preventing     stress
Soil fertility 1. Promote the beneficial microorganisms →     Promotion of soil fertility 1. Promote soil microbial activity within the
    (Inhibit harmful bacteria density)
2. the use of amino acid as a feed of the     microorganisms,
