The state economy, family bills, an epidemic, traffic and work problems, family discussions: there are many issues that plague humans every day. life is full stressors Which generate consequences in the body: physical discomfort, insomnia and even repercussions on mental health.
In view of this, experts recommend working on the concept of well-being, implementing a series of actions that contribute to improvement quality of lifeMeditation, physical activity, reading or contact with nature are some of the popular suggestions.
As in humans, the Plants also suffer from stress. In this case, lack or excess of water in the soil, temperature extremes, other inclement weather such as wind or hail, soil salinity or herbicide toxicity can all cause limitations during the growth phase of the crop. The final production expresses only a small part of its genetic potential.
So, in the same way that rush hour traffic can make your head hurt, Stress in crops is expressed in some visible and other physiological issues.
“For example, the first response to a lack of water is wilting, as a result of a loss of turgor pressure. However, internally it affects the Transmission of delegates By altering the relationships between source and destination, there are changes in gene expression in the leaves, and there is an accumulation of abscisic acid, known as the stress hormone, which leads to the expression of several specific genes and induces mouth closure as a defense,” he highlights. Claudia Mamani MorenoDoctor of Plant Physiology and Regional Technical Coordinator for Stoller Argentina.
Other examples: in the case of environments with high salt concentrations, Inhibition of leaf growth occurs, while at the cellular level a decrease in osmotic pressure as a result of the accumulation of sucrose and amino acids has been verified, among many other effects.
Or when the crop is supported low temperatures, In some species, leaf discoloration, delayed flowering, as well as production of certain proteins in response to membrane cooling can be observed.
Another major hormone is ethylene. A growing number of studies in plants exposed to vital stress or abiotic, highlight the role of ethylene under a wide range of stress: it modulates the defense response, and mediates growth inhibition primarily in vegetative structures, affecting both cell division and expansion. Your response will act as a bridge between the changing environment and the plant’s adaptation.
Beyond these processes, the result is that endanger production; Therefore, profitability as well as the possibility of investing in the next cycle.
For Mamani Moreno, “Just as science has made great progress in terms of knowledge about plant metabolismAdvances have also been made in strategies to deal with stressful situations.
In this sense,Nutrition is important for dealing with stressful situations. What many doctors have said in reference to the population, during an epidemic, also applies to plants. BiostimulantsNext to Flour s MicronutrientsMake a difference when it comes to developing a strong root system, and achieving a uniform appearance of plants.
Anticipating situations, preparing the plant for what’s to come And respond quickly in pursuit of their well-being, is another key motto in this crusade,” adds Stoller’s reference.
The key is the timing and effectiveness of the application, in case foliar fertilizer: “You can go from success to regression if the chosen moment is not the right moment. It is necessary to form good root systemensuring greater access to the water and nutrients needed to build a resilient plant”, adds Mamani Moreno.
In the case of Stoller, the recommendation is to use Bioforge, a Compound antioxidants Specifically to meet the needs of crops in stressful situations.
Technically, your app is over-expressive Genes directly related to resistance to adverse conditions It regulates the enzymes involved in the synthesis of ethylene, which encourages the plant to improve its cellular activity, allowing the crop to recover from the stressful state it has been exposed to.
“This technology has been validated in studies conducted at different universities and has been recognized.” International awards. BioForge has been awarded the Frost & Sullivan Award, Green Excellence in North American Agricultural Sciences. This award is given annually to a company that demonstrates excellence in product and technology development. At the local level, many producers’ experiences also support it,” highlights Mamani Moreno.
In conclusion: as in humans, the concept of well-being in crops facing stressful situations is possible. You just have to choose product and timeliness.
