What is Nitrostim? Nitrostim is a biotechnology product, the result of Humofert’s research. It is a microbial preparation that stimulates plant growth due to the activity of specific nitrogen-fixing bacteria that have the ability to penetrate the above-ground parts of plants (phyllosphere) and become endophytes. It is important to say that Nitrostim can be applied to all crops (Wheat, Maize, Cotton, Oats, Alfalfa, medicinal plants, rice, potatoes, etc.) by spraying the leaves of the plants in the initial stages of their growth.
MODE OF ACTION
The endophytic Nitrogen-fixing bacteria of the phyllosphere, after binding the atmospheric Nitrogen, convert it into a form immediately assimilable by the plants at a constant rate, ensuring fast, intense and balanced growth. In addition, they produce phytohormones intracellularly, which stimulate the functions of plant cells and “unlock” the potential productivity of plants prescribed by their DNA. Nitrostim’s combination of nitrogen fixation and biostimulation results in an impressive increase in yields with low cost and environmental safety.
Nitrostim’s Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria:
1.Provide plants with an internal source of Nitrogen, which produces Nitrogen in a form immediately absorbable by plant tissues.
2. Continuously supply Nitrogen to the plants, as the cycle of Nitrogen fixation can continue during the biological cycle of the plants.
3. Produce growth hormones (eg auxins) which stimulate and promote growth.
4. Increase the uptake of nutrients from the foliage.
BENEFITS OF NITROSTIM
• Stimulates vegetative growth
• Increases performance while reducing production costs
• Strengthens plants against adverse environmental factors such as drought, salinity, etc.
• Improves plant resistance against biotic stressors
• It reduces the use of Nitrogen fertilizers while in some cases it can completely replace it
• Contributes to the reduction of nitrate pollution caused by the use of chemical fertilizers
