Agricultural biostimulants include diverse formulations of compounds, substances and micro-organisms that are applied to plants or soils to improve crop vigour, yields, quality and tolerance of abiotic stresses.
Biostimulants foster plant growth and development throughout the crop life cycle from seed germination to plant maturity in a number of demonstrated ways, including but not limited to :
Improving the efficiency of the plant’s metabolism to induce yield increases and enhanced crop quality
Increasing plant tolerance to and recovery from abiotic stresses
Facilitating nutrient assimilation, translocation and use
Enhancing quality attributes of produce, including sugar content, colour, fruit seeding, etc
Rendering water use more efficient
Enhancing soil fertility, particularly by fostering the development of complementary soil micro-organisms
« By combining plant biology knowledge and beyond state of the art biocatalysis, we help your plants to help themselves. »
Biostimulants operate through different mechanisms than fertilisers, regardless of the presence of nutrients in the products.
Biostimulants differ from crop protection products because they act only on the plant’s vigour and do not have any direct actions against pests or disease.
Crop biostimulation is thus complementary to crop nutrition and crop protection.
Fyteko’s challenge was to find a way to defeat abiotic stress impacts on crops. In other words, “plant stress” can be defined as every factor or unfavourable condition that affect negatively plant’s metabolism and/or its physiology. This stress may provoke cell or tissue injuries up the actual plant’s death as well as reduce the plant growth and/or its development.
By understanding plant metabolism behaviour under stressing conditions, Fyteko has Developed high-performance formulations for plant care against abiotic stresses and has gain insights on the mechanism of action of signalling molecules in plants and associated beneficial microorganism.
Fyteko’s products are easy to use sustainable solutions, helping to reduce the use of chemicals in agriculture and increasing safety, value from field and hope for the future.
A unique precise molecule that has a specific effect on the crops
A biostimulant focused on abiotic stress – « no rain no pain »
A systemic and long lasting impact on crops
Non toxic and beneficial for microorganism present in the soil
NURSEED® Seed Treatment Biostimulant is a seed coating formulation based on a modified polysaccharide, designed to help seedling establishment even under stress conditions. Safe, natural, highly innovative and easy to use, NURSEED® ensures crops early vegetative development, counter stress action on plants and improve absorption of useful substances.”
NURSPRAY® is a foliar spray formulation based on one signal molecule designed to trigger the plant’s response to tolerate and recover more efficiently from abiotic stress conditions (eg. drought, high temperature, erratic rains…). Or signal molecule will help the plant to activate it’s defense mechanism just on time to respond better to abiotic stress.
