The emerging political and economic situation in the world has a direct or indirect impact on the selection of means of protection and nutrition of agricultural crops in Russia. Thus, due to the increase in the cost of manufacturing and transportation, most popular complex and simple fertilizers have risen in price, and due to sanctions, a number of drugs are supplied to our country intermittently. As a result, many farms are thinking about optimization, that is, how to maintain the planned quality and yield indicators, but, as far as possible, reduce the amount of fertilizer applied, purchase cheaper, albeit potentially less environmentally friendly CPPPs and fertilizers.
The market offers many solutions, but in this article we will limit ourselves to considering one - from our point of view, the most innovative and most responsive to the needs of plants: we will talk about the use peptide growth stimulators.
Peptides and amino acids are important structural elements in many plant biochemical mechanisms, as they are the basis of proteins. At the same time, many researchers note that not individual amino acids, namely Peptides play a fundamental role in plant physiology, as these basic cell components perform important biological functions - they turn on defense mechanisms in response to stress or pathogen/pest invasion, enhance metabolism and physiological processes, and regulate plant growth and development. Peptides are chemical compounds that are made up of amino acids linked through peptide bonds. Peptide molecules act at the cell membrane level, activating specific metabolic pathways: in fact, each peptide is a "key" adapted to a specific functional protein receiver - a "lock" in the cell membrane, it stimulates the physiological or biochemical function of the cell and thereby directly affects plant growth and development.
Scientists have proven that short peptides are absorbed by the body better and faster than polypeptides and free amino acids. Immediately after entering the plant, short peptides begin to work to solve the problems and tasks of the plant at the current moment, bypassing the processes that require time and energy.
An example of a peptide stimulant is a very powerful, 100% herbal preparation - TRAINER. It contains a high concentration of short functional peptides (up to 31%), a complete set of all plant amino acids, as well as a complex of oligosaccharides (10%), organic nitrogen (5%) and other biologically active compounds. Thanks to enzymatic hydrolysis and high-quality plant raw materials, TRAINER has a low salinity level and is approved for use in organic agriculture. Let's take a look at why so many growers choose this drug.
Increasing the rate and absorption rate of mineral nutrition
Photosynthesis is the engine of plant functioning, and the maximization of photosynthetic activity leads to the full use of nutrients, water, light energy, the absorption of CO₂ and the formation of plant biomass. It has been established that the use of a peptide growth stimulator TRAINER Together with water-soluble fertilizers or UAN, it significantly (up to 25%) enhances the absorption of nutrients from fertilizers, which directly saves the finances of the economy and ensures that the yield level is maintained even with a decrease in the doses of applied fertilizers.
Stimulation of the growth of quality indicators of the crop
Once in the plant, short peptides TRAINERand are immediately included in the metabolic processes of the body without loss of time and energy costs for the transformation of inorganic substances into organic ones. And since plant peptides and amino acids are a ready-made building material for any plant tissue, their introduction into the phases of crop formation activates the optimal functional activity of the entire plant organism and ensures the accumulation of nutrients in the generative organs, thereby directly affecting the quality of the crop.
Increasing resistance to abiotic stress
Being a concentrate of peptides and amino acids, the drug TRAINER has a pronounced effect on the hormonal balance of plants, while it does not contain any artificial or natural hormones, however, the presence of specific peptide molecules in its composition triggers the launch of a cascade of biochemical reactions that activate the production of anti-stress hormones by the plant itself, as well as growth hormones and the laying of generative organs . Application TRAINERand before stress (1-2 l/ha) helps to "charge" the plant and help it better cope with the potential impact of negative environmental conditions (heat, frost, water deficiency, sunburn), while maintaining normal growth processes. Application TRAINERand during or after stress (2-4 l/ha) it enables the plant to regenerate damaged tissues and return to optimal vital activity faster.
Removing phytotoxicity and enhancing the efficiency of HSZR
Adding a drug TRAINER (0,75-1,5 l / ha) in tank mixtures with pesticides reduces the stress load of the cultivated plant and reduces the manifestations of phytotoxicity due to the acceleration of metabolism and faster tissue renewal. At the same time, peptide molecules act as catalysts for the penetration of chemical active substances, thereby enhancing the adsorption and movement of selective herbicides in weed tissues, increasing the efficiency of treatment and making it possible to reduce dosages. In cases where signs of phytotoxic effects have already appeared, anti-stress treatment at a dosage of 2-3 l/ha makes it possible to improve the condition of plants and maintain the yield potential.
With that said, peptide stimulant TRAINER can be called a breakthrough in the market of stimulants. This drug is recommended for foliar treatments in all cases when the plant is under stress and / or when it is required to get the maximum from the variety under the existing soil and climatic conditions of the region at no extra cost, which is especially important at the present time.
