Heat Stress and Radiation – Strengthen Your Plants

 

Over the last years we are facing more and more dry weather periods, especially in the early summer. These weather conditions (heat stress, radiation) will cause physiological plant stress.
Aminosol® (amino acids) will help to reduce physiological stress and can be combined directly with other nutrients to ensure an optimized plant nutrition for an optimized yield.
To fight against heat stress, plants have a sufficient cooling system due to their own transpiration as long as there is enough water available. But also nutrients as phosphorus, potassium, manganese, boron and amino acids should be available in sufficient quantities.
Strong radiation is causing aggressive substances (e.g. hydrogen peroxide or ozone). These substances, called oxygen radicals, are not only able to destroy chlorophyll but also complete cells. This will be visible and leads to „sunburn“ with the consequence of yield and quality losses.
To „protect“ plants against heat stress they need to be sufficiently supplied with amino acids, manganese and zinc before the radiation leads to damages.
