    Microalgal Biostimulants and Biofertilisers in Crop Productions

    Authors: Domenico Ronga, Elisa Biazzi, Katia Parati, Domenico Carminati, Elio Carminati and Aldo Tava

    Journal Title: Agronomy

    ISSN: 2073-4395 (Online)

    Publisher: MDPI AG

    Microalgae are attracting the interest of agrochemical industries and farmers, due to their biostimulant and biofertiliser properties. Microalgal biostimulants (MBS) and biofertilisers (MBF) might be used in crop production to increase agricultural sustainability. Biostimulants are products derived from organic material that, applied in small quantities, are able to stimulate the growth and development of several crops under both optimal and stressful conditions. Biofertilisers are products containing living microorganisms or natural substances that are able to improve chemical and biological soil properties, stimulating plant growth, and restoring soil fertility. This review is aimed at reporting developments in the processing of MBS and MBF, summarising the biologically-active compounds, and examining the researches supporting the use of MBS and MBF for managing productivity and abiotic stresses in crop productions. Microalgae are used in agriculture in different applications, such as amendment, foliar application, and seed priming. MBS and MBF might be applied as an alternative technique, or used in conjunction with synthetic fertilisers, crop protection products and plant growth regulators, generating multiple benefits, such as enhanced rooting, higher crop yields and quality and tolerance to drought and salt. Worldwide, MBS and MBF remain largely unexploited, such that this study highlights some of the current researches and future development priorities.

    EU Call for Proposals: Demonstrate bio-based pesticides and/or biostimulant agents for sustainable increase in agricultural productivity

    Bio-based solutions such as bio-based pesticides have the potential to decrease inputs of synthetic pesticides in the agricultural sector, while providing high yields in terms of pests’ control. However, having a higher selectivity than currently used pesticides, they would require the combination of different solutions in integrated pest management approaches to obtain the total desired results. Also, extensive testing needs to prove they meet all requirements regarding risks, toxicity and pathogenicity. These factors have been holding back a wide use so far.

    On the other hand, one of the biggest challenges of agriculture is to guarantee high crop yields and productivity, while matching increasingly stringent environmental regulations dealing with the agricultural sector. Moreover, the increasing world population and the related increased demand for sustainable food production systems are boosting the expansion of agricultural practices also in currently un- or under-exploited lands. Thus, the optimal use of such new arable lands calls for environmentally friendly products for plant health enhancement, such as biostimulants able to foster plant growth without ‘overloading’ the environment with potentially harmful chemical inputs.

    The specific challenge is to apply sustainable solutions for effective pest control and/or biostimulation enabling a sustainable increase of agricultural productivity.

    Dateline for proposal submission: 4 September 2019 17:00:00 Brussels time

    I can not speak for other countries around the world, but I can speak about the state of the EU countries. There are many small companies and individuals that have agricultural products that are safe for the environment and will very much have a positive impact on agriculture.

    The problem lies with governmental bureaucracy which are holding these products from ever making it to the marketplace. #GroAloe is one of those products! It is safe for the environment, great for plant growth and yield. We are certified, IFOAM, USDA, OCIA, and OMRI. Currently, the approval for these products and Biostimulants is not scheduled until 2020. It is easier to get an environmentally damaging product on the market than one that is beneficial. There is a lot of talk about saving the environment minimizing agriculture's impact on soil, water, and chemical use, but the EU is moving at a snail's pace to make this possible.

    There has to a faster and simpler way of getting these products to market. The current guidelines are so rigid that they impede many products from qualifying. There should be more flexibility in these guidelines. Our product, for example, has all the parameters to be registered as a Micronutrient product. Problem. your product has to be inorganic. There is no place for a product that is organic. Could someone explain this to me, please?

    I think that you get the picture of what organic fertilizers, biostimulants, and products of this nature are facing in the EU (EC). It is an uphill battle all the way. The EU needs to break the roadblock and allow these types of product access to the marketplace now, not tomorrow or by possibly 2020.

    Mini review: Fruit Residues as Plant Biostimulants for Bio-based Product Recovery

    Authors: Andrea Ertani, Ornella Francioso, Serenella Nardi

    Journal Title: AIMS Agriculture and Food

    ISSN: 2471-2086 (Online)

    Publisher: AIMS Press

    The request of natural products has augmented in the last years due to the increase in intolerance and allergy reactions showed by humans versus pesticides and certain chemical compounds used in agriculture. In response to this demand, innovative methods and new natural matrices have been exploited to obtain products able to increase plant nutrients use efficiency. In this context, agro-industrial residues contain bioactive molecules, including antioxidants and phenols, which may be used by farmers to improve crop productivity. Phenols are ubiquitous in plants and are essential components of the human diet by virtue of their antioxidant properties. They may also act as positive growth regulators by modifying the root architecture and, consequently, the uptake of macronutrients, potassium especially. In order to understand their effects on the plant metabolic pathways, agro-industrial residues were supplied to maize plants and the activity of specific enzymes was evaluated. In this review, developments and improved understanding on fruit residues on primary and secondary plants metabolism are discussed.
