According to EBIC (European Biostimulants Industry Council) plant biostimulants contain substance(s) and/or microorganisms whose function when applied to plants or the rhizosphere, is to stimulate natural processes to enhance plant nutrient uptake, nutrient use efficiency, tolerance to abiotic stress, and crop quality.
Plant biostimulants differ from other agricultural inputs such as fertilizers and plant protection products because they utilize different mechanisms and work regardless of the presence of nutrients in the products. They also do not have any direct action against pests or diseases and therefore complement the use of fertilizers and plant protection products.
BIOTRYG is the global brand name for Yara's biostimulant technology.
The name "BIOTRYG" is a combination of "bio", representing the biostimulants platform, the plant's natural process and life; and the Old Norse word "tryggr", which means trust, faithful, and also reminds us of the English word "trigger", representing the effect of the technology on the plants.
