10 years of scientific research have made it possible to describe the specific mode of action of the Plants for Plants® products.

  • The metabolomics method was used to identify which compounds are being synthesized during the interaction of the product with the crop
  • Biochemistry helped to determine how the product protects the plant against oxidative stress (ROS-degrading enzymes)

These different methods have proved their worth as essential tools for the characterization and understanding of the biological and agronomic phenomena observed during the trials and increasing the performance of crops.

Identified mode of action

Genomic and metabolomic methods have identified a clear mode of action for 4-Good. On one hand, 4-Good improves Phosphate assimilation thanks to an up-regulation of PHT2;1 gene a chloroplastic Phosphate transporter, and on the other, we measured significantly less cell damaging oxidative components, keeping the plant healthy despite natural oxidative phenomena, safeguarding optimal performance and potential of the crop.

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.

Genomic and metabolomic methods have identified a clear mode of action for 4-Terra. 4-Terra improves Phosphate assimilation thanks to an up-regulation of PHT2;1 gene a chloroplastic Phosphate transporter. Furthermore, we measured a significant increase of microbial population allowing P solubilization in the soil (microbiome effect).

Proven effects in more than 120 trials

Over the last 5 years, we have conducted more than 120 scientific and demonstration tests to prove the different modes of action and effects of Plants for Plants® products.

Thanks to all these trials, growers from all over the world have been able to test Plants for Plants®, both under conditions of stress and comfort. They've been able to see with their own eyes the results of our plant-based biostimulants on their crops.

In all this time, we have learned a lot about how Plants for Plants® products perform in different climatic conditions. All the results of the tests carried out in these years are available for download and verification by any user.
