1s5: Seaweed extracts to boost crop productivity under stress conditions
In the coming decades our world will face several major problems: climate change and a growing world population, combined with an increased welfare. Together with increased temperatures, we will face increased drought and salinisation, with negative effects on crop growth and productivity worldwide. How to combat these seemingly inevitable effects, besides attitude change? Based on an extensive literature review combined with our own experimental results, we show that seaweed extracts have promising biostimulant properties on crops both under stress and non-stress conditions.Â
