In these 2022 trials, the application of beneficial microbes, plus regular applications of CS1 resulted in huge yield increases in maincrop potatoes.
As with all field trials, these results were influenced by local climatic conditions and the biological, physical and chemical condition of the soil, meaning that results will differ from site to site. Soil-plant-climate interactions are complex. A deeper understanding of the effects of biostimulants on all aspects of the ecosystem is required in order to improve future methodologies in sustainable food production.
These results, from heat stressed trials in Lincolnshire and Norfolk in 2022, confirm that seaweed-based biostimulants can reduce potato yield losses to abiotic stress and improve crop quality. The frequency and magnitude of heat stress episodes are intensifying due to global climate change and we need to adapt. Understanding and implementing effective methods to mitigate stressful growing conditions is now a priority for farmers and growers across the UK.
