Supercharged Clusters Drive the
Path to Better Quality!
Stimplex® is a unique biostimulant that fuels the growth and development of healthy plants. Stimplex works at a cellular level by improving the production of naturally occurring plant hormones that stimulate stress resistance, improve root growth and maximize nutrient uptake. This all leads to enhanced yield for a greater return on investment.
Benefits to Grapes
- Improves Nutritional Uptake
- Mitigates Environmental Stresses
- Improves Wine Quality
Stimplex Improves Yield and Quality
Stimplex works at a cellular level by improving the nutritional status of your crop. This, combined with the unique stress compounds elicited by Stimplex, results in great juice quality and beautiful wines.
How Does Stimplex Benefit Grapes?
Improves Nutritional Uptake:
Stimplex ramps up your nutritional program by improving crops’ nutrient uptake, driving great rachis growth (stretch) for looser clusters and better airflow around the fruit. When you apply Stimplex as part of your regular nutrition program, you’re putting nutrients on the fast track into your plants and ensuring they get the most out of every ounce of fertilizer. Stimplex contains natural complexing sugars which bind to micronutrients, thereby improving the bioavailability and transport of nutrients within the plant.
Mitigates Environmental Stresses:
Don’t let stress steal your fruit! Stimplex helps your crop better resist tough growing conditions to ensure maximum yield and crop quality by increasing photosynthesis, resulting in improved growth. This improved growth is apparent from grapes treated with Stimplex, as they have increased rachis length, allowing for improved airflow and spray penetration into the cluster. With its numerous bioactive compounds such as mannitol, unique polysaccharides and betaines, Stimplex improves a plant’s tolerance to a variety of stressful growing conditions including drought, chill, heat and salinity stress.
Improves Wine Quality:
Applications of Stimplex can be used to increase yield, while maintaining or increasing wine quality. Stimplex increases berry set and reduces crop loss due to stress. Stimplex elicits the production of naturally occurring stress compounds, such as anthocyanins, which contribute to quality juice for high-quality wine.
