Within the UPL range of biostimulants are two that stand out from the rest.

The first is a laminarin based product, used at T0 to control Septoria tritici and Powdery mildew. The labels application rate is 1l/ha however from independent trials 0.75l/ha provides best value for control. The way the laminarin based product works is by eliciting the plants natural defence mechanism. The reason it must be used at T0 and no later is at this stage it can provide protection for the crop throughout all of the following growth stages. One of the most exciting features of this product is it has no known resistance.

The second is a product called Vitalroot, which improves both nutrient and water access as well as translocation. This means the crops have better uptake of nutrient and in times of high N prices could potentially lead to an increase in efficiency of N. The improvement in root mass is evident in the attached photos. This is also applied at T0.
