Abstract

Biostimulants have emerged as a vital component in modern agricultural practices, offering significant benefits for fruit crop production. These substances, whether of natural or synthetic origin, exert beneficial effects on plant growth by enhancing metabolic processes and improving stress tolerance, thereby augmenting both crop yield and quality. Moreover, they contribute positively to soil health, further bolstering their impact on agricultural productivity. Principal categories of biostimulants encompass humic substances, seaweed extracts, amino acids and protein hydrolysates, microbial inoculants and silicon-based products. Each category functions through a different mechanism, such as increasing the absorption of nutrients, promoting the growth of roots, controlling hormone levels and increasing the water-use efficiency. In order to ensure crop resilience, support sustainable agriculture and satisfy the increasing demand for premium fruit crops worldwide, biostimulants are well-positioned to play a significant role. This article examines how biostimulants can boost fruit crop yield while maintaining the safety and quality of the food supply.
