STOLLER'S BIO-FORGE

Less Stress More Profit

How does Bio-Forge work?

Bio-Forge is a unique patented nutrient formulation containing Diformylurea. With its antioxidant properties, Bio-Forge works to maintain the genetic potential of plants, improve growth, and increase yield in a variety of agricultural crops.

Bio-Forge ® assists in maintaining healthy root tip development and limits the effect of stress ethylene production to allow better nutrient uptake, resulting in improved yields. It can be used in both preventative and curative situations, allowing growers the flexibility they need to react to plant stress.

Bio-Forge protects crops against stress events and assists in crop stress recovery.

When crops become stressed they produce excess ethylene. Ethylene is a normal plant growth hormone produced in the cells, it holds the key function of controlling all other hormones within the plant. Although critical to plant functionality, excess levels of the gas, such as in a stress event, can cause premature cell death and plant damage. Keeping ethylene at a normal levels is critical to maintaining healthy growth in a crop and high yields at harvest.

The earlier the action is taken to regulate ethylene levels in a crop, the better resistance the crop will have when stress factors occur. The patented nutrient formulation of Bio-Forge® acts on the Dreb1A gene, which plays a role in drought tolerance. By upregulating this gene, other genes involved in resistance are upregulated with a cascading effect. Taking preventative action to reduce excessive ethylene by applying Bio-Forge ® results in greater future yields.

Bio-Forge can also be applied after the crop has been effected by a stress event to restore normal growth functions. Bio-Forge® supresses the effects of stress ethylene production on yield and has been designed to make sure plants keep growing and stay as healthy as possible during stress events.

Common signs of plant stress

There are some common indications that your crop may be under stress. These include:

  • Poor root growth
  • yellow leaf
  • burning on the leaves
  • wilting
  • stunted plants
  • curled leaf
  • cupping
  • poor establishment

Common stress factors include

  • Storm damage i.e heavy rain, wind and hail
  • Frost and heat stress
  • Mechanical damage
  • Herbicide damage
  • Spray damage
  • Spray drift
  • Irrigation break down
  • Flooding
  • Natural crop stress
