Vol 72, No 2 (2019): Biostimulation and biofortification of crop plants

Cover Page

On the cover A beautiful ripening apple fruit ‘Egremont Russet’ is going to delight the consumer with its taste in fall. High quality of fruits is possible to achieve after application of biostimulants to apple trees at the stage of flowering or fruiting. Application of biostimulants is a modern approach to stimulation of fruit development and enhancement of its resistance to stressful conditions, e.g., too low temperatures in spring, drought, or pathogenic diseases. It also has a positive impact on the yield performance and fruit quality traits at harvest.
