BIOFECTOR (BO-25.10-004-001)

Project: LNV project

Project Details


“Bio-effectors are viable microorganisms and active natural compounds (e.g. microbial residues,

composting/fermentation products, plant/algae extracts) whose direct or indirect effect on plant

performance is based on the functional implementation or activation of biological mechanisms,

particularly those interfering with soil-plant-microbe interactions. In contrast to conventional

fertilizers and pesticides, the effectiveness of bio-effectors is not based on the substantial direct

input of mineral plant nutrients, either in inorganic nor organic forms, or of

a priori toxic

compounds. Bio-preparations (bio-agents) as ready formulated products, applied with the purpose

of stimulated plant growth (bio-stimulants), improved plant nutrient acquisition (bio-fertilizers), to

protect plants from pathogens and pests (bio-pesticides/bio-control agents) or generally to advance

cropping efficiency, can contain one or more bio-effectors along with other substances”
