Biostimulants Market – Overview
Biostimulants are like fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides but not exactly. The definition of a biostimulant keeps it from being classified as fertilizer, they are used in small amounts for providing nutrients to plants with related deficiencies. Their sole purpose is to encourage plant growth and their quality. Therefore enhance the net crop return and profit.
Biostimulants are prepared from plant hormones, microorganisms, enzymes, and other trace elements. These constituents are mixed in precise amounts for manufacturing biostimulants. Biostimulants increase the nutrient availability and the metabolism of plants. They also boost the production of chlorophyll and antioxidants in targeted plants. Water use is also rendered to be more efficient when used with biostimulants. Goes without mentioning that soil fertility is also increased.
Biostimulants are involved with the crops throughout their life cycle, from seed germination to planting maturity by doing various small tasks like providing these crops with nutrient assimilation and use and also increasing the crops tolerance towards abiotic stresses and also helping them in recovering from them.
Biostimulants are very environment-friendly which an attribute attractive to plant growers is. These are also required in smaller amounts compared to traditional fertilizers. The foliar technique of application is the most favored for biostimulant supply, as it delivers ingredients in a much more direct manner when compared to the others.
Recently farmers all around the world have been facing a stark contrast in crop yields compared to years before due climate change. An unstable yield of several foods and even cash crops has prompted those concerned towards utilization of biostimulants worldwide.
Biostimulants not only differ from fertilizers and fungicides in the compounds that constitute them but also the way in which these are used with the crops since the process of biostimulation involves the modification of the plant environment to stimulate existing helpful bacteria capable of bioremediation that is a reduction of target pollutants. Biostimulation in crops differs from the use of fertilizers since it is simultaneously involved in crop nutrition and both crop protection, something fertilizers or more precisely overuse of fertilizers has failed to tackle for over 30 years.
Huge investments in research and development have been coming in for a decade now towards Biostimulants. Europe has been leading the Biostimulants Market and is closely followed by North America on account of rapid development, new innovative Biostimulants and the constant research that is being carried out to find even new and much better compounds while the Asia-Pacific market is expected to be the fastest growing market because of the rising awareness and preference towards better farming techniques.
With the increasing scarcity of land and water, amplified importance is being put on the support of advanced tools that can help improve crop harvest. However, issues such as lack of awareness among the farmers in the developing countries and high R&D costs involved in this field are hindering the growth of the market.
