Biostimulants market on the rise with increasing penetration – Trends 2018

“Biostimulants Market”
Biostimulants Market By Active Ingredients (Fulvic Acid, Protein Hydrolysates, Seaweed Extracts, Amino Acid, Humic Acid, And Others), By Application (Seed, Foliar, Soil), By Crop Type (Fruits & Vegetables, Cereals & Oilseeds, Turfs & Ornaments, And Others)

Biostimulants act as catalysts to improve the plant quality, quantity, growth and the end yield. There are not some kind of pesticides or nutrients but a kind of organic materials that enhance the overall crop production and disease resistance. They can be supplied to the seed, soil or the plant directly in reasonable traces to stimulate the biological processes in plants like photosynthesis, nucleic acid synthesis, respiration and others. These biostimulants can comprise of one or more substances like the extract from seaweed, microorganisms, plant hormones, enzymes and so on.

According to the latest industry report published by Market Data Forecast, the Global Biostimulants Market is estimated to grow at a whopping CAGR of 11.92% to cross USD 3,092.8 million by 2022 from the current known net worth of USD 1,603.9 million in 2016. Biostimulants can be extremely helpful in providing nutrients, water storage capacity, the augmented chlorophyll production, stress withholding capabilities, improved metabolism, increased yield of crops, and lot more.
