BIO-CYTOLAN SEAWEED is a liquid formulation based on extracts of seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum, which naturally contain phytohormones, such as cytokinins and auxins, as well as other biostimulating substances, such as betaine and various oligosaccharides, which can increase resistance and the tolerance of plants to various pests and diseases. Alginic acid, present in the cell wall of seaweed, acts as a hydrocolloid, retaining moisture and nutrients from the soil and therefore improving its structure and preventing the loss of materials by leaching or runoff. Mannitol, on the other hand, is a poly-alcohol with osmoprotective activity, and therefore it grants protection to the plants against saline or water stress. At the same time, it has antioxidant properties, protecting cells against reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated in stress situations.
