There is no doubt that for the horticultural industry to become more resilient and sustainable growers need to adopt a range of biological products including plant biostimulants. Stimulating natural processes, quality biostimulant products have been scientifically proven to enhance nutrient uptake and efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress as well as crop quality. These products have an important role to play in modern horticultural production.
Healthy well-nourished plants grow and yield well and have a much high disease-resistance threshold. Unlike synthetic agrochemicals, biostimulants are not silver bullets. In the early days of biostimulants, guidance for use was sometimes rudimentary and resulting efficacy could be erratic.
Fast forward several decades and ICL is working with companies leading this field, to bring your proven products supported by in-depth technical backup.
Benefits to using biostimulants
- Helping combat environmental stresses – Biostimulants can promote enhanced germination and root development, leading to increased vigour and greater stress resistance. An enhanced root system promotes more efficient nutrient and water uptake and translocation throughout the growing season.
- Boosting plant health and quality – Promoting growth and improving plant metabolism can benefit overall plant growth and health. In addition, providing a catalyst at specific developmental stages can lead to improved uniformity and overall plant quality.
- Encouraging plant growth – Biostimulants generally operate through different mechanisms compared to standard fertilizers, providing essential nutrients for plant metabolism that stimulate growth. Upregulating gene expression can have an effect on cell division and sizing, root and shoot growth, and reproductive development and timing.

The best results with Hicure are achieved when applied before crucial physiological phases (e.g. flowering or root development) or suboptimal conditions (e.g. drought, heat). Frequent applications give a more reliable effect than single treatments. Hicure can be embedded easily in your daily activities. It can be mixed with most crop protection products and fertilisers and with all standard high-volume application devices.
Vitalnova Guardian is a blend of naturally derived polyketides and foliar-applied nutrients essential for plant biofortification, formulated for immediate effect and rapid response in the face of external crop stresses. Well-nourished plants have a more effective defence system.
Vitalnova Prime is derived from yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae). Yeast cell walls are rich in amino acids and peptides which are known to act as natural elicitors within the plant, stimulating the plants natural defences against environmental stresses (otherwise known as abiotic stress).
Vitalnova TriBoost is the new microbial inoculant which consists of enzymes three beneficial live cultures; Bacillus subtilis, Enterococcus faecium and Lactobaillus plantarum. Each microbial strain has been selected for their beneficial properties with regards to soil health.
