Example, to search for all recorded cases of biostimulant use on tomato mitigate effects of drought type: "tomato, drought"


Type: Seaweed extract, Company: BioAtlantis


No effect on drought stress tolerance
No effect on nitrogen N use efficiency
No effect on produce quality

BioAtlantis treated Hydrangea, cv. Phantom, grown in a peat-based substrate in reduced water and nitrogen conditions had 1.9 % shorter branches, 7.2 % more branches, 3.3 % less fresh weight, 3.5 % less dry weight, 0.5 % less root development, a 5.9 % higher chlorophyll-index, a 6.6 % lower flavonol-index, a 3.7 % lower anthocyanin-index and a 46.2 % higher stomatal conductance (only determined at -40% reductions) compared to the untreated control grown in the same conditions. No significant effects.
