Seminar 9 - How Biostimulants Can Form Part of an Integrated Pest Management Programme

PRE-BOOKING ONLY AVAILABLE FOR BIGGA MEMBERS

Biostimulants are used to protect turf against abiotic stresses including drought, high temperatures and salt stress. These natural materials can modify plant physiology to enhance growth characteristics such as root mass, especially when turf is subjected to abiotic stress. 

We are now getting a better understanding of the modes of action of biostimulants in plants, which biochemical pathways they affect and how to modify applications to enhance plant responses. Biostimulants also influence plant tolerance against fungi, nematodes and insects. 

In this seminar we discuss how biostimulants can be used to combat biotic stress as part of an Integrated Pest Management Programme. 

Learning Outcomes: 
• How biostimulants modify plant physiology to increase tolerance to pests and diseases 
• How best to integrate biostimulants into a turf management programme 

Presented by Richard Salvage, Managing Director, Maxstim Ltd and Dr Colin Fleming, Principal Scientific Officer, Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute
