Van Iperen Plants for Plants 4-Vita is part of the new generation of plant-based Biostimulants developed for a more sustainable agriculture.

Traditionally, biostimulants were often seen as a way to counter abiotic stress and stimulate plant performance despite adverse conditions. However, very few have so far targeted natural Oxidative Stress management as well. Oxidative stress is a natural and continuously occurring process in all living organisms that leads ultimately to cell degradation and death. 4-Vita drastically reduces natural oxidative damage on the cells hence greatly preserving the yield potential whatever the crop condition, and that is a true innovation on the biostimulant scene.

Additionally, 4-Vita enhances the Water Use Efficiency (WUE) of the crop by increasing its tolerance to drought and heat conditions through the protection of the photosynthetic system in the plant. 4-Vita has been developed for all crops in both comfort and stress conditions. Applied in foliar during the advanced vegetative stages of the crop cycle, 4-Vita will optimize the crop’s water supply ensuring a better performance throughout the season, resulting in higher yields and crop quality.

  • Fully controlled process from plant material to final product
  • Inducing reduction of natural oxidative stress phenomena
  • Enhancing WUE, ensuring increased yield and crop quality
  • Safe for users, consumer and for the environment
  • Suitable for organic farming in compliance with European Regulation (EU) 2018/848
  • Developed for foliar application

In case of foliar feeding as part of a mix with crop protection products, a compatibility test has to be done prior to preparing the spray-mix.

Mode of action

Genomic and metabolomic methods have identified a clear mode of action for 4-Vita. On one hand, 4-Vita improves water use efficiency and drought tolerance of the crop by modulating the lipidic membranes to protect the photosynthetic system in the chloroplast, and on the other, we measured significantly fewer cell-damaging oxidative components, keeping the plant healthy despite natural oxidative phenomena, safeguarding optimal performance and potential of the crop.

The mentioned indicated dosages and application stages are given as a guideline. Exact dosages, concentration and application stage are subject to local conditions, use of other fertilizers and can only be given after an objective diagnosis.
