Keen to increase root and shoot biomass or reduce abiotic stress? Look no further.
Unium Bioscience’s biostimulants include compounds, substances and micro-organisms that can be applied to seeds, plants or soils for a range of beneficial impacts throughout their life cycle.
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.
Biostimulants are designed to sustainably help farmers meet growing agricultural demand. They improve crop production in many ways resulting in yield and quality responses which ultimately leads to greater farm profitability. Biostimulants also improve the uptake and efficient use of other essential inputs, notably fertilisers. This allows farmers to maximise their investments with the added benefit of reducing environmental impacts.
Agricultural biostimulants form a very broad range of compounds, substances and micro-organisms that can be applied to plants or soils to maximise crop vigour, nutritional efficiencies, yields, quality and tolerance of abiotic stresses.
Biostimulants support plant growth and development throughout the life of the crop from germination to plant maturity in numerous ways, including but not limited to:
Maximising seed germination and establishment
Supporting the seedlings association with the soil biology
Enhancing the primary and secondary metabolic pathways – in general or very specifically
Increasing the nutrient use efficiency, enhancing assimilation, translocation and utilisation increasing production and reducing environmental impact
Reducing the impact of abiotic stress e.g. heat, drought, waterlogging, cold , soil conditions, pesticidal applications etc
Increasing soil fertility by supporting soil biology and plant associations
Maximising water use efficiency – drought or waterlogging
Our scientific and academic network links are world-class, confirming our place at the forefront of biostimulant research and development.
Unium Bioscience’s suite of pioneering technologies and treatments go through a rigorous product development process, including peer-reviewed research, proof of concept studies, strong replicated field trials and on farm comparisons.
Thus when choosing a product to use you can be confident that we know what our products do, when and how to apply them (and when not to) how and why they deliver the specific benefits you are looking for in a reliable, robust affordable way. Every benefit we claim we can back up with independent data with the best advice to maximise success.
Look at the objective you are trying to achieve e.g. increased rooting, enhanced drought tolerance, increased chlorophyll levels, better nitrogen management etc , select the product most suited to deliver that need, analyse the supporting product data assess the financial Return on Investment, the % chance of achieving break even or greater and then enjoy the benefits.
