The Almeria-based company of agricultural biotechnological solutions Vellsam Materias Bioactivas has managed to improve the rooting and growth of strawberry plants with its Root Plus Green rooting solution, which enhances the root system and improves the plant's vegetative development.
In tests carried out in recent weeks in strawberry crops in the province of Huelva, it has been shown that by applying the solution every 7-10 days through the irrigation system, the crop's vegetative and root development improves compared to untreated plants, showing an increase in leaf density.
In addition, it was observed how the application of Root Plus Green significantly affected root density, boosting the formation of the hairs responsible for the absorption of nutrients.
Root Plus Green is a root biostimulant based on specific rooting amino acids such as tryptophan, which is a precursor to the plant's natural auxins and promotes root development, providing vegetative vigor and improving the absorption and translocation of soil nutrients.
Vellsam Materias Bioactivas is a pioneer in the research, design and production of innovative agricultural biotechnological solutions, developing and distributing agronutrients and specially-designed products worldwide.
In addition, the company has recently become a partner of the Association of Strawberry Producers and Exporters of Huelva (Freshuelva), whose associated companies account for around 95% of the sector's production.
