    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

    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.

    Research suggests "that the textbook critical concentration is likely too high . . . [but the] textbook critical leaf boron concentrations for rice have not changed [and] continue to be used to make foliar recommendations to growers."
