Low temperatures in autumn and winter are one of the biggest challenges for crops, as they can damage plant tissues and cause leaf and flower necrosis, stunted growth, reduced yields, and even total crop loss.
To improve the resilience of crops to the coming low temperatures and to minimize damage or stunted growth, we at Stoller have developed and patented BioForge®, a solution with a unique Formulation Technology in the market.
How does stress affect crops?
It is estimated that, in general, crops express 30% less of their genetic potential due to losses caused by stress.
Since the moment a plant germinates, it is constantly challenged with abiotic stresses, more commonly known as cold, heat, hail, rain, frost and drought. When a plant suffers abiotic stress, it focuses its energy on survival rather than reproduction, which means that production takes a back seat.
BioForge® has antioxidant molecules that keep the plant active and balanced so that it can express its maximum productive potential.
