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


Type: Mix of different types, Company: Valagro


Increased other

Radifarm treated Tomato, cv. Buran F1, showed increased highest leaf area index (+76.3%), decreased specific leaf area (cm²/g DM) (-9.5%) and increased leaf dry matter content (mg/g fresh weight) (+11.3%), averaged across treatment methods and both samplings, compared to the untreated control. The different application methods had the same significant effect. The effect on the specific leaf area and the leaf dry matter was only significant in the first trial year.
