Biostimulants are a diverse group of products that can help turf managers achieve a range of goals related to plant health and performance. These products are formulated with a variety of substances that stimulate natural plant processes, independent of their nutrient content.
One of the most important benefits of biostimulants is that they can improve nutrient-use efficiency in turfgrass. This means that the plant is able to take up and utilize nutrients more effectively, leading to improved growth and overall health. Biostimulants can also promote root development, which further enhances nutrient uptake and utilization.
In addition to improving nutrient-use efficiency, biostimulants can also enhance the stress tolerance of turfgrass. They can help the plant to cope with a variety of environmental stresses, including drought, heat, cold, and disease pressure. This can result in a more resilient and healthy turfgrass, with better recovery after periods of stress.
Another important benefit of biostimulants is their ability to improve turf quality traits. These include factors such as colour, texture, density, and uniformity.
Finally, biostimulants can improve nutrient availability in the soil. By promoting beneficial microorganisms in the soil, biostimulants can help to break down organic matter and release nutrients that are otherwise unavailable to the plant. This can further enhance turfgrass health and performance.
At ICL, we offer a range of biostimulant products designed specifically for use in turf management. Our biostimulant range includes the Vitalnova range of products and Hicure from Syngenta.
In summary, biostimulants are an important tool for turf managers looking to promote healthy and resilient turfgrass. By improving nutrient-use efficiency, stress tolerance, turf quality traits, and nutrient availability, biostimulants can help to create a more attractive and resilient playing surface.
