Seminar 16 - Components of Biostimulants - The Good, The Bad & The Make-Believe

PRE-BOOKING ONLY AVAILABLE FOR BIGGA MEMBERS

This seminar will provide an overview of the biostimulant materials on the market, how they work and interact with the plant and each other to produce responses from turf. What biostimulants should be used, where and when. What data is available on the benefits of seaweed, humic acid, fulvic acid, mycorrhizae, PGPR, etc. 

It will also look at the differences in the make-up and use of liquid and granular biostimulants. 

Biostimulants can have both positive and negative effects - marketing will focus on the positive and ignore the negative, so a rounded overview is important. 

Learning Outcomes: 
• Find out exactly what a biostimulant is and what it can and can’t do 
• How different biostimulants work and what turf responses you are likely to see 
• Select an appropriate biostimulant for your situation 
• Avoid unnecessary biostimulant applications 
• The negative impacts of some biostimulant materials to avoid turf damage 
• Know what to look for when new ‘wonder products’ are released
