Abstract:

Agricultural growing practices have been evolving towards organic, sustainable or environmentally friendly systems. The aim of modern agriculture is to reduce inputs without reducing the yield and quality. The identification of organic molecules able to activate plant metabolism may allow an improvement in plant performance in a short period of time and in a cheaper way. Biostimulants are plant extracts and contain a wide range of bioactive compounds that are mostly still unknown. These products are usually able to improve the nutrient use efficiency of the plant and enhance tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses. In this review, the state of the art and future prospects for biostimulants are reported and discussed. Moreover, particular attention has been paid to intensive agricultural systems such as floricultural crops. In floriculture, biostimulants used in bedding plant production stimulated the growth of plants, which reached the blooming and commercial stages earlier, thus optimizing space in the greenhouse.
