Title: Biostimulants: Another Tool for the Grower's Toolbox


You may have heard that biostimulants can improve plant health and crop quality, but what are they and how do you use them?  Biostimulants represent a large variety of sustainable products that can stimulate natural plant processes that enhance nutrient uptake, nutrient efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress, and crop quality.  Active ingredients in these products may include beneficial microorganisms, seaweed extracts, organic acids, protein hydrolysates, and many other substances.  How do you choose a product and how do you incorporate its use into your production system?  This session will address these questions and share current research results on different biostimulant products for both greenhouse ornamentals and vegetables.
