  • The study compares four different biostimulants and analyses the origin of their ingredients and the method the L-α amino acids are obtained
  • This paper will be presented at the Biostimulants World Congress in Barcelona 18-21 November
  • Bioibérica will have a stand in the exhibitors area and will present its range of biostimulants and tailored solutions for the formulation

Bioiberica Plant Health presents a study that concludes that the amino acids obtained through enzymatic hydrolysis from selected protein sources have a greater biostimulant effect. This paper will be presented at the Biostimulants World Congress in Barcelona 18-21 November within the Congress’ official section (Tuesday 19, 3:25 p.m., track 2).

The study compares four different biostimulants, one Terra-Sorb®, and analyses the origin of its raw material and the method the L-α amino acids are obtained. The results demonstrate that the selected source of the raw material is related to higher protein quality and more and more diverse amino acids. Obtaining L-α amino acids through enzymatic hydrolysis is observed to be a competitive advantage over those obtained by chemical hydrolysis since they maintain their natural and biologically active form.

Terra-Sorb®, specifically, is the best-performing product. This product is obtained with Enzyneer®, Bioiberica's exclusive L-α-amino acid and other bioactive compound extraction technology to control plant stress. Enzyneer® allows the extraction of L-α-amino acids in L-form (biologically active) and facilitates the release of glycerolipids and sterols that act in synergy to stimulate plants’ physiological processes. These ingredients extracted with Enzyneer® offer greater resistance to stress, boost the absorption of nutrients and improve the quality of the fruit obtained. Its effectiveness has been compared with photosynthesis regulation studies, bioassays on phytohormonal-like activity and analysis of gene and proteomic expression.

Bioiberica Plant Health will also be present in the exhibitors area with a stand (nº 107) and will present its range of biostimulant and tailored solutions for the formulation of products to overcome plant stress, increase crop performance, and improve quality parameters.

The Biostimulants World Congress, organised by New AG International, is a scientific and technical event that brings together more than 750 companies from around the world to learn more about the latest innovations in the industry and exchange ideas. Biostimulants are compounds and substances that act on the physiology of plants in many ways to improve the vigour, performance, quality, and lifespan of crops after harvesting.
