Futureco Bioscience launches today its new product FitoMaat®, a biostimulant to overcome abiotic stress situations caused by adverse climate conditions such as cold, heat, drought, salinity and cracking of fruits due to heavy rainfall.
Abiotic stress situations make plants invest its resources in the production of compounds that protect them from stress consequences, such as reactive oxygen species, inhibiting photosynthesis, decreasing protein synthesis and attempting to equilibrate the osmotic balance, that lead to reduced yield.
FitoMaat® increases photosynthetic rate during stress periods, protects protein synthesis and protein turnover to sustain metabolic rate, improves the general nutritional status of the plant, protects flowers and fruits by maximizing pollination, fruit set and fruit growth and magnifies fruit quality by avoiding osmotic imbalance and protects against cracking.
Formulated as a microgranulate solid, which eases its dissolution and distribution to be applied by foliar spraying and irrigation, FitoMaat® has an exclusive composition based on osmoprotectant and antioxidant substances. It is available in doypacks of 500g and 2,5kg for solid products, a new packaging presentation used by Futureco Bioscience to reduce the waste of plastic and water in more than an 80%. FitoMaat® is suitable for organic farming and can be applied in a huge variety of crops. Its name is inspired in Maat, the goddess and symbol of balance in ancient Egypt.
