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