Improving and protecting flowering
Flowering is a very delicate physiological stage for the plant.
Numerous physiological processes are set in motion to induce flowering and this complex balance can be disrupted by various stresses and adversities.
There are many stresses that can hinder correct flowering, such as thermal stress caused by late frosts, water stress generated by excessive rain or drought and finally the light stress produced by excessive radiation.
The flower affected by all these stresses produces a large number of ROS (reactive oxygen species), also commonly called free radicals, which can cause strong oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress causes the destruction of membrane lipids and the end products of these lipid peroxidation reactions are particularly dangerous for the viability of cells and even tissues. There are natural enzymatic (eg catalase, superoxide dismutase) and non-enzymatic (eg vitamins) antioxidant defense mechanisms.
Since lipid peroxidation is a self-propagating chain reaction, the initial oxidation of only a few lipid molecules can result in significant tissue damage.
Lipid peroxidation is a process generated by biotic (pathogenic), environmental (temperature changes, insufficient brightness, UV rays, etc.) and chemical (e.g. heavy metals) stresses due to the effect of different reactive oxygen species (hydroxyl radical, hydrogen peroxide etc.).
Agridaeus suggests the application of Boomergy.
Boomergy has a powerful antioxidant activity as it is rich in antioxidant molecules (vitamins B, vitamin E) and is able to stimulate natural enzymatic activity to actively protect plant tissues and ensure the best production performance.
