Organic Biostimulants

Biostimulants are among some of the earliest agricultural inputs, used by humanity. During the past decade, an increasing amount of research has been undertaken by biostimulant producers and their partners to identify new bioactive compounds and beneficial microorganisms and to better understand how biostimulants can enhance crop performance and quality, under a wide range of growing conditions.

While biostimulants are still associated by many people with organic farming and organic gardening, they are now playing an important role in conventional agriculture as a complement to crop nutrition and crop protection.

Organic biostimulants that are currently used include, plant hormones, vitamins, enzymes, humic acid, sugars, sea kelp, fish emulsion and other products.

Biostimulants help address some of the most important challenges that global agriculture will face in the coming years:

Feeding a growing population requires yield increases and enhanced crop quality, both of which are fostered by biostimulants.

Extreme temperatures, irregular rainfall and other stressful growing conditions, related to climate change, require resilient crops. Biostimulants increase plant tolerance to and recovery from abiotic stresses.

By facilitating nutrient assimilation, translocation and use, biostimulants help keep nutrients from leaching or running off into neighbouring ecosystems. This means a higher return on investment for farmers and better use of the natural resources, from which many crop nutrition products are derived.

Biostimulants can enhance quality attributes of crops, including sugar content, colour, fruit seeding, etc. Enhanced quality can mean higher incomes for farmers, better storage and more nutritious food for consumers.

Biostimulants help protect and improve soil health by fostering the development of beneficial soil microorganisms. Healthier soil retains water more effectively and better resists erosion.

Seaweed

Seaweed, which is also referred to as kelp, has been used for many years and is one of the most commonly added biostimulants in fertilizers. It can contain dozens of micro-nutrients, a few trace elements, hormones, vitamins and antioxidants.

The benefits they provide are numerous. They encourage beneficial soil microbes that influence the production of available nutrients. Within the plant, seaweed extract is believed to help in nutrient uptake and increases photosynthesis and chlorophyll production. Photosynthesis is necessary for the production of carbohydrates and can increase root and blade development, reduce heat stress and increase resistance to disease pressure.

Products

 

Algit Cream

Our company’s main concern has always been to provide cost effective products of the highest quality, respecting nature and environment.

This idea led us to the creation of Algit Cream. A pioneer organic biostimulant product that is based on the proven benefits of the seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum, unlocking the full potential of plants.

Algit Cream is a biostimulant solution produced by a specialized cold process of the seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum that maintains intact the natural balance of the kelp’s free aminoacids, hydrolyzed proteins, vitamins, macro-micro elements and natural hormones (ABA,IAA ,Cytokinins).

This balance is the key to the direct nutrient absorption and growth of plants, since they automatically identify the nutrients, imitating natural processes.

Key Advantages of Algit Cream:

  • Improves in a natural way the synthesis of proteins, amino acids, sugars within the plant and increases its growth.
  • Promotes faster flowering.
  • Increases crop yield.
  • Enhances all the quality characteristics (color, size, etc) of the final crop.
  • Extends the preservation time of the final crop during transport.
  • Helps the plant to overcome stress.
  • Improves the efficiency of water-soluble fertilizers and pesticides.
  • Stimulates the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the soil.
  • Strengthens the root system of the plant.

Algit Cream Mechanism of action:

  • The natural hormones act as a growth regulator by enhancing the amino acids, proteins and sugars synthesis within the plant.
  • The Amino acids of seaweed activate plant metabolism and improve the self defense mechanism.
  • The Sugars of seaweed improve the soil’s quality, increase the availability of energy and stimulate growth.

Algit Super

Algit Super is a liquid organic biostimulant solution produced by a specialized alkalized hydrolyzation process of the seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum. It contains a complex matrix of plant nutrients, trace elements, carbohydrates, amino acids, vitamins and primary and secondary nutrients.

This unique combination of elements, that are included within the seaweed, is the nature’s key to success in every cultivation, promoting overall plant nutrition, health, photosynthesis and growth. 

This solution consists of 7,5% seaweed concentration.

Key Advantages of Algit Super:

  • Promotes faster flowering.
  • Increases crop yield.
  • Enhances all quality characteristics (color, size, etc) of the final crop.
  • Helps the plant to overcome stress.
  • Improves the efficiency of water soluble fertilizers and pesticides.
  • Strengthens the root system of the plant.

Alga-Hum

Alga-Hum can be identified as a resources reservoir of nature’s building elements for plant growth. It consists of 45-60% organic matter and it is produced by a unique extraction process of the seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum. This process creates distinct dark brown flakes that enclose, in a natural balance, more than 60 primary and secondary elements, trace elements, amino acids, carbohydrates and other plant growth stimulants, such us gibberellins, auxins and betaines.

Alga-Hum is designed to increase crop production and quality when it is used in conjunction with a well-balanced crop nutrition program.

 

Key Advantages of Alga-Hum:

 

  • Treating seeds or seed pieces with Alga-Hum prior to planting will improve seed, germination, root growth and early seedling vigor.
  • Promotes plant health and photosynthetic capacity.
  • Increases crop yield and size.
  • Enhances nutrients level.
  • Helps the plant to overcome stress caused by drought, salinity and temperature.
  • Improves the efficiency of water-soluble fertilizers and pesticides.
  • Strengthens the root system of the plant.
