ABIOTIC STRESS DEFENSE
The Challenge

Abiotic stress reduces yield and quality. Biotic stress is always preceded by abiotic stress factors.

The Science

Abiotic stress is the negative impact of non-living factors and can lead to biotic stress. Abiotic stress is caused by four fundamental factors: weather, soil health, nutritional imbalance, and oxidative stress. Yield and quality are reduced when abiotic stress occurs.

Plants naturally produce antioxidants to counteract stress. Plants must constantly adapt to the growing conditions of their environment. As stress occurs, oxygen free radicals accumulate in plant tissue. If the plant is unable to combat the oxygen free radicals, premature cell degradation occurs. Redox technologies promote abiotic stress defense.

    Examples of Abiotic Stress Factors
  • Reduced Antioxidant Production
  • Inhibited Plant Respiration
  • Reduced Photosynthetic Activity
  • Poor Root Growth & Metabolism
  • Weak Cell Wall Strength
The Redox Solution

Redox recommends four products that specialize in abiotic stress defense by increasing plant respiration, fortifying cell wall strength, stimulating root growth & metabolism, and accelerating photosynthetic activity.
