Bio-stimulants Effect on Pepper Plant Performance Case Study
Two bio-stimulants were tested, along with a normal nutrition control treatment, in order to determine the effect on sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum) plant growth, water use efficiency, drought tolerance and resilience. All plants, excluding control plants, were exposed to drought and recovery period, and their physiological response was measured.
One of the bio-stimulants significantly increased daily transpiration starting a few days after treatment has started.
Different effects on plant`s response to drought and recovery were discovered.
Physiological response results complied with actual yields results.
