HF-Biostimulant

Biostimulant and fertilizer additive which promotes plant health through nutrition in pip-and stone fruit, grape, berry and vegetable.

Fennel oil (Oleum foeniculi) is a secondary plant product which stimulates plant metabolism and increases quantity and activity of bacteria and fungi. Fennel oil has a drying quality on foliage and on spore hyphae. Its flavonoid anti-oxidants quercetin and campherol remove free radicals. Its etheric oils fenchon, eugenol, thymol and myristicin support wound healing.

Apply at a 0.25% rate with 400-600 litre H2O.

Can be mixed copper, equisetum and Baillus Thuringiensis, not with sulphur.

Flovonoids

Flavonoids or bioflavonoids are a class of plant secondary metabolites.

They are widely distributed in plants fulfilling various functions. Flavonoids are the most important plant pigments for flower coloration producing yellow or red/blue pigmentation in petals designed to attract pollinating insects.

In higher plants, Flavonoids are involved in UV-filtration and symbiotic nitrogen fixation. Some flavonoids act as a chemical messenger or physiological regulator. They also have the potential to be biological ‘response modifiers’, such as anti-allergic and anti-inflammatory qualities shown by in-vitro studies.

Flavonoids (both flavonols and flavanols) are most commonly known for their anti-oxidant quality.

There is ongoing study into the health benefits of wine (resveratrol et al) derived from the anti-oxidant properties of flavonoids.

HF-Biostimulant is also component A of OICOMB with component B called Equisetum Plus.
