Biostimulants and the environment

Farming and food production are essential practices, however they can have negative effects on the environment.

The use of fertilisers, pesticides and other chemicals can be destructive in terms of the biodiversity of an area – whether on a large scale farm or your garden. They contribute to the urgent problem of nitrogen pollution and add chemicals into the food system that may be detrimental to us, the consumers.

Biostimulants are emerging as an effective alternative to these agrichemicals as they are often made from naturally occurring compounds and used in smaller quantities to see significant beneficial results. Biostimulants are the environmentally friendly choice in agricultural practices on both large scale, and smaller scale in your garden or allotment. Biostimulants can:

  • Improve the efficiency of the plant’s metabolism, which results in more produce
  • Increase the plant’s natural tolerance to stressors (such as pests and disease)
  • Aid faster recovery from stressful events
  • Helps plants absorb and use nutrients more effectively
  • Help grow better fruit and vegetables with improved sweetness, colour and seeding
  • Use water more efficiently
  • Enhance soil fertility without the use of fertilisers

Using the right biostimulants – such as our Healthy Garden range - can result in the reduction of the need for pesticides and fertilisers as the plant itself is better equipped to fend for itself. Additionally, less land is needed to grow more produce.

At Greenman Plant Care our range of specially designed biostimulants are natural products that support your plants, ensuring they reach their maximum potential, and are kind to the environment.

Our Fruit & Veg biostimulant will ensure you are growing more, tastier fruits and vegetables, whilst also taking care of the wildlife in your own green space. And our Lawn biostimulant will help your grass develop stronger roots to sustain and strengthen it to deal with changes in weather and disease.

Make the kind choice for your garden or allotment.
