Organic Agriculture +: The Power of Maxstim’s Biostimulant Innovations

Insight

Organic grown crops

Maxstim’s biostimulant formulations have a proven efficacy across a wide range of agricultural and horticultural crops.

Recently, the Maxstim R&D team have been focusing on the organic production sector. Consumer interest in organically grown fruits and vegetables is increasing due to greater awareness of healthier and safer products. Additionally, there is a growing trend of individuals preferring to source from environmentally-friendly production systems which aim to cultivate food with minimal impact on natural ecosystems.

Since 2008, organic horticultural production has doubled worldwide, accounting for over 3.5 million hectares of cultivated organic land. A significant drawback of organic farming is the generally lower yields achieved compared to conventional agriculture. Therefore, more land is often needed to produce the same amount of food as conventional farming, leading to environmental pressures.

Nutrient availability (i.e. Nitrogen and Phosphorus) has been found to be a yield-limiting factor in many organic production systems. Plant biostimulants have been identified as a significant tool for enhancing both plant nutrition and yields in the sector.

Organic Agriculture + is an Amphenox™ flavonoid based biostimulant with organic registration approval from Ecocert.

Flavonoids are natural compounds involved in multiple processes within plants. Recently the ability of Organic Agriculture + to enhance plant growth and crop yields has been demonstrated in a series of glasshouse experiments and commercial trials. To see these results view the article: Maximising Crop Resilience: The Power of Flavonoid-Based Biostimulants.

Our patented technology can enable growers to respond to market demand, significantly improve yield and minimise environmental impact.

Some of the benefits of using a Maxstim Organic Agriculture+ protocol include:

  • Better establishment and early development of crops
  • Roots that quickly develop more mass and depth
  • Plants that grow bigger and faster
  • Higher and better quality yields
  • Boost the plant’s resistance to disease, pests and stress
  • Reduce other inputs, such as fertilisers and pesticides with no harm to humans, wildlife or the environment
