Biostimulants as the secret to healthy fruit trees

Fruit trees are the heart of many orchards, and their health and productivity are vital for every fruit grower. In the quest for sustainable and effective methods to support the growth and development of these trees, biostimulants have emerged as valuable tools. But what exactly are biostimulants and how can they contribute to the health of apple and pear trees?

The benefits for fruit trees

For apple and pear trees, biostimulants can offer benefits that contribute to their overall health and productivity:

  1. Improved root development: Biostimulants can promote root growth, allowing trees to better absorb water and nutrients from the soil. This results in stronger anchorage and improved uptake of essential nutrients.
  2. Promotion of resilience against environmental factors: Apple and pear trees are often exposed to various stress factors, such as drought, heat, and diseases. Biostimulants can help activate the trees’ natural defense system, making them more resistant to such stressors.
  3. Increased fruit quality: With improved nutrient uptake, apple and pear trees can produce healthier and higher-quality fruits.
  4. Sustainability: The use of biostimulants can contribute to reducing dependence on chemical fertilizers and pesticides, thereby reducing the impact on the environment.

How to use biostimulants?

The use of biostimulants in apple and pear orchards requires careful planning and application. The right dosage, timing, and application methods are essential to reap the maximum benefits. Download our crop brochures for more information.


By supporting natural growth and development, biostimulants can be a valuable addition to the arsenal of modern fruit growers. With careful use and application, biostimulants can help create healthy orchards where high-quality fruit prevails.
