Our health and wellness impact our everyday lives. We want to feel our best so we can be our best. This is no different for your plants and trees. We know that our wellbeing is dependent upon many things – from the food we eat to the environment we live in. But sometimes a healthy breakfast and a walk in the neighborhood is not enough. So, we take our vitamins and add supplements to our smoothies. Why? Because we know these are the additional steps we need to make in order to protect our health.
It’s no different for the environment that surrounds us. There is no doubt that plants and trees receive nutrients from the earth, sunlight and rainfall, but what if there was something that could give them a leg up? A Biostimulant is just that. A Biostimulant works to improve your plants health. More specifically,
As defined by the 2018 Farm Bill, a Bio stimulant is a “substance or microorganism that… stimulates natural processes to enhance or benefit nutrient uptake, nutrient use efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress, or crop quality and yield.”
Just like we take vitamins and supplements to boost our immune systems, we can perform a service for your trees and shrubs that combines all of these components to create a natural resistance to intrusive forces like disease and pests. Just like the nutrients eggshells add to your compost to help your garden flourish, a Biostimulant uses and enhances the nutrients found in the soil. It differs from fertilizer, a synthetic based material that, while fast acting, does not provide the same tolerance to extreme weather and bacteria’s, as a Biostimulant do.
Improved productivity? What does that look like?
- Greater water and nutrient intake
- More efficiency
- Stronger root structure and root expansion
At the base of it all – Systematic Resistance
We know this is hard to think about as we bid farewell to summer, but winter will be upon us before you know it! Fall is a great time to help your trees and shrubs get ahead of the anticipated cold weather.
How do I get it?
