In cereal farming, both the yields and the qualitative parameters of the grain collected can be strongly influenced by the characteristics of the soil and the meteorological trend of the year. Fertilization is one of the most important cultivation techniques to ensure that the plant is in the best conditions to face difficult years from a thermo-pluviometric aspect, and not only because it guarantees the crop adequate nutrition.
Fertilization can do much more.
On the one hand, the application during the sowing of products inoculated with useful microorganisms, in particular mycorrhizal fungi and PGPR bacteria, can favour the faster and more “harmonious” development of the root system, even when facing not entirely favourable environmental conditions, by improving the functional efficiency of the roots and, ultimately, the hydration and nutritional balance of the plant.
On the other hand, the distribution during the growth cycle via leaves or roots of liquid fertilizers with a biostimulating action, and once again inoculated with useful microorganisms, can positively influence not only the nutritional status but also the health of the plant.
By combining these two types of products into a single fertilization strategy, we can obtain results in line with expectations even during critical years.
The test we are referring to in this article, conducted on common wheat, proves it.
