Biocontrol and Biostimulation for Field Crops
Higher yields demand a precise follow-up of crops (decision making tools, vegetal health bulletins) in terms of fertilization and phytosanitary treatments. The usage of biocontrol products in association or as substitutes to chemical products is emerging.
Yeast based products are currently being integrated in crop protection programs for critical stages like : flowering, ripening, pod settings. These alternative solutions are under development for the major uses, like wheat septoria or soybean Asian rust, allowing to slowdown the emergence of resistances.
By stimulating field crops at key stages of their development, products derived from microorganisms can increase the yield. The plants and the microorganisms act in synergy at the rhizosphere level to optimize the utilization of available resources in soil. Biostimulants rich in amino acids and fermentation metabolites secure the flowering in abiotic stress conditions and help the migration of reserves to the seeds.
Benefits of microorganisms derived biostimulants on field cultures:
– Soybean: hydric stress resistance and abortion reduction
– Corn: starter effect and improved fertilization
– Wheat: increased protein rates and yields, resistance to heat stress at flowering
