BIOSTIMULANTS

ANADIAG ITALIA is able to perform customized trials on Biostimulants and to build specific protocol according to the different needs and to the aim of the products, and following the new EU regulation 2019/1009

OUR BIOSTIMULANTS APPROACH

ANADIAG ITALIA has implemented 3 main experimental approaches for biostimulants evaluation:

  • Screening (research trials).
  • Registration trials for a deep evaluation, following the new official guidelines.
  • Demo trials in large plots for a summary evaluation and commercial purpose.

Those trials can be performed in different conditions, depending on the target:

Our Assessment methods

Some evaluations and parameters implemented by ANADIAG ITALIA to measure the effects of biostimulants:
  • Root scan for enhance of radical development
  • Dry matter content on plant and roots
  • Improvement of the vigor or greening of the crop (specific instruments SPAD, NDVI,…)
  • Evaluation of resistance to abiotic stresses (salinity, heat, frost and drought stress) through different specific and objective instruments
  • Yield (with all the specific plot combine for different crops)
  • Quality traits (with many different high level instruments)
  • Evaluation of eventual resistance to fungus attacks, insects, etc… (but in that case the product will become a PPP)
  • Root scan for enhance of radical development
  • Dry matter content on plant and roots
  • Improvement of the vigor or greening of the crop (specific instruments SPAD, NDVI,…)
  • Evaluation of resistance to abiotic stresses (salinity, heat, frost and drought stress) through different specific and objective instruments
  • Yield (with all the specific plot combine for different crops)
  • Quality traits (with many different high level instruments)
  • Evaluation of eventual resistance to fungus attacks, insects, etc… (but in that case the product will become a PPP)

BIOSTIMULANTS Claims

ANADIAG ITALIA has experience to implement specific Biostimulants trials to get the following claims, as specified in the new EU regulation 2019/1009:
1. NUTRIENT USE EFFICACY:  Nutrients uptake and assimilation – Nitrogen fixation – Phosphate Solubilization – Chelated plant nutrient.
2. TOLERANCE TO ABIOTIC STRESS:  Water and Flooding stress – Salt stress – Cold and Freezing stress – Heat stress – Light/radiation stress – Herbicide and agrochemical application stress – Heavy metal stress.
3. IMPROVE QUALITY TRAITS:  Color, Firmness and Size – Sugar, Oil, Dry matter content – Skin quality (cracking) – Organoleptic quality of harvested products – Shelf life – Harvested Seeds quality (Protein, Gluten, Starch, Zeleny, Oil content, Specific weight, TGW) – Germination rate – Tillering – Flower fertility / setting (anticipation or uniformity) – Plant Biomass – Root development.
4. MOVEMENT OF IMMOBILIZED NUTRIENTS IN SOIL OR RHYZOSPHERE:  Nutrient availability – Nutrient uptake.

Application methods

ANADIAG ITALIA implemented specific application methods of Biostimulant products to enhance their different activities, such as the following:
  • Foliar application
  • Soil application
  • Drip irrigation
  • Seed treatment
  • Pre-planting seedling immersion
  • Drench Application
  • Root application
  • Hydroponics
Foliar application – Soil application – Drip irrigation – Seed treatment – Pre-planting seedling immersion – Drench Application – Root application – Hydroponics

CROPS TESTED

ANADIAG ITALIA can perform trials on many of the crops classified in the 3 following groups by the new guideline for the Biostimulants registration.
ANADIAG ITALIA can also suggest and implement an appropriate trials program to spread among the different crops for the registration purpose.
