The use of organic biostimulants in nitrogen fixing trees


, : The use of organic biostimulants in nitrogen fixing trees. Nitrogen Fixing Tree Research Reports 8: 78-80

A short account is given of the use and development of a non-polluting organic biostimulant (OB, defined as non-fertilizer products which have a beneficial effect on plant growth) called 'Roots' which consists of a mixture of humic acids, marine algal extracts, a non-hormonal reductant plant metabolite and B vitamins. Brief data are presented on its use in stimulating the growth and nitrogenase activity of Alnus acuminata seedlings.

Seasonal variation patterns of N and P contents in leaves of nitrogen-fixing trees. The seasonal variation and export rate of N and P contents in leaves and the export course of N and P in decrepit leaves of 23 nitrogen-fixing and non-nitrogen-fixing tree species were studied. The results showed that in the leaves of all tested t...

Nitrogen-fixing and non-nitrogen-fixing species of north deciduous trees were studied to characterize the variation of nutrient contents and its seasonal dynamics. The results showed that the content of N and Mg in foliage was significantly differ...
