Utilising the benefits of organic hormones from plant extracts in fertilisers

One application that is gaining recognition is the use of organic hormones derived from plant extracts in fertilizers.

Organic hormones offer numerous benefits, including improved plant growth and development, increased resistance to stressors, improved nutrient uptake and reduced environmental impact. In this article, we explore the benefits of using organic hormones from plant extracts in fertilizers and their potential to revolutionize today's crop production.

Gen1:11 is enriched with various plant extracts that naturally include the following plant hormones: auxins, cytokinins, gibberellins, triacontanol and salicylic acid. In addition, our extracts also contain vitamins, amino acids, humates, silicon, etc....

Hormonas ecológicas procedentes de extractos vegetales

Organic hormones from plant extracts, such as auxins, cytokinins and gibberellins, play an important role in regulating various physiological processes in plants. When incorporated into fertilizers, these hormones can stimulate cell division, elongation and differentiation, resulting in improved root and shoot growth. By encouraging the growth of healthy plant tissues, organic hormones contribute to improved crop yields, better quality products and higher overall productivity.

Triacontanol

One particular plant hormone with proven benefits is triacontanol. Triacontanol has been found to significantly enhance photosynthesis in plants. It activates the enzymes involved in photosynthesis, leading to increased chlorophyll production and enhanced carbon dioxide assimilation. This hormone promotes the efficient conversion of sunlight into chemical energy, resulting in a higher rate of photosynthesis and more biomass for the plant. By including triacontanol in fertilizers, growers can optimize the photosynthetic capacity of crops, thereby improving overall growth and productivity.

Plant hormones are versatile chemical regulators of plant growth

Salicylic acid

El ácido salicílico es conocido por su capacidad para activar los mecanismos de defensa de las plantas, reforzando su inmunidad frente a diversas enfermedades, plagas y patógenos. Cuando las plantas se exponen al ácido salicílico, activan una serie de reacciones bioquímicas que refuerzan sus defensas naturales. Esta hormona desencadena la producción de compuestos antimicrobianos, como las fitoalexinas, que inhiben el crecimiento de patógenos. Además, el ácido salicílico aumenta la producción de genes de defensa y favorece la síntesis de proteínas patógenas que ayudan a combatir las enfermedades. Al incorporar el ácido salicílico de la corteza del sauce blanco a los abonos, los cultivadores pueden proporcionar a las plantas un mecanismo de defensa natural.

More efficient uptake of nutrients

Las hormonas orgánicas contribuyen a que las plantas absorban y utilicen eficazmente los nutrientes esenciales. Por ejemplo, las auxinas facilitan la absorción de nutrientes minerales, especialmente el fósforo, al aumentar la superficie radicular y promover la ramificación de las raíces. Las citoquininas, por su parte, mejoran la translocación de nutrientes dentro de las plantas, lo que conduce a una mejor distribución y un uso más eficiente de los nutrientes. Al incorporar hormonas orgánicas a los fertilizantes, los agricultores pueden optimizar la absorción de nutrientes, reducir el desperdicio de fertilizantes y minimizar la lixiviación de nutrientes, con el consiguiente ahorro de costes y reducción de la contaminación ambiental.

Improvement of stress resistance

Plants often face various environmental stressors such as drought, heat, salinity and disease. Organic hormones derived from plant extracts have been shown to improve the stress resistance of plants. By including organic hormones in fertilizers, growers can strengthen the resistance of their beloved creations and ensure more stable and reliable harvests.

Gelukkig is het gebruik van synthetische hormonen meestal verboden. Biologische hormonen afgeleid van plantenextracten bieden een duurzamer en milieuvriendelijker alternatief. Deze hormonen zijn biologisch afbreekbaar en vormen geen risico voor bodemorganismen, aquatische ecosystemen en de menselijke gezondheid. Door biologische hormonen in meststoffen te gebruiken, kunnen kwekers de gezondheid van hun gewassen bevorderen en de opbrengst en kwaliteit verhogen.

Conclusion:

The inclusion of biological hormones derived from plant extracts in fertilizers offers numerous benefits to any grower. These hormones contribute to improved plant growth and development, more efficient nutrient uptake, increased stress tolerance and reduced environmental impact. In our quest to optimize the quality of our organic-mineral fertilizers, harnessing the power of organic hormones offers an exciting opportunity to revolutionize the way we grow beloved creations.
