Fulvic Acid for drought stress relief (data)

Fulvic acid trials across various countries around the world show the positive impact it can have on plants experiencing drought stress in areas with low precipitation. It is regarded as an effective tool to use as an electrolyte to increase chlorophyll production in crops that have experienced low precipitation, as we have seen in recent times in New Zealand.

To view such trials see the list of links below. You are welcome to contact us directly for more information on how Fulvic Acid (our product is called Mobilizer) can positively impact your crop.

Research

This research trial in Iran confirms that the use of fulvic acid has a positive effect on antioxidant activity and quality of hot pepper under field conditions.

This article in The Crop Journal discusses a study showing the application of Fulvic acid to Brassica napus crops significantly increased fluorescence of chlorophyll a, inhibiting ROS production and enhancing antioxidant enzymes activity that destroyed ROS. Thus, ROS in plant cells was reduced under water stress by application of Fulvic acid and consequently, lipid peroxidation was reduced.

This study looks at the effects of drought-resistant fulvic acid liquid fertilizer on wheat and maize growth. Conclusions state the pigment content of wheat leaf in the field at seedling stage and stage of the seedling establishment can be increased significantly with FA irrigation.

This study of the effect of foliar application of fulvic acid on water use, nutrient uptake and yield in wheat in North China demonstrated that when FA was used to decrease the water stress or the stress imposed by hot, dry winds during ear development, grain yield increased by 7.3-18.0%.

This study shows the effects of fulvic acid on the photosynthetic and physiological characteristics of Paeonia ostii under drought stress. These results indicated that FA treatment could induce antioxidant enzymes to eliminate ROS, reduce membrane lipid peroxidation and decrease damage to photosynthesis in P. ostii under drought stress, which would provide a measure for alleviating the damage of P. ostii caused by drought stress.

This study on Tea plants not only confirmed the main strategies of FA to protect tea plants from drought stress, but also deepened the understanding of the complex molecular mechanism of FA to deal with tea plants to better avoid drought damage.
