In the research laboratory of the university, the biostimulator was obtained in the form of a suspension that can be produced on an industrial scale.
– Microalgae have many positive qualities. It secretes hormones that promote better plant growth, contains vitamins, antioxidants, a wide range of useful substances – more than 15 thousand. Numerous studies have not revealed any of its indicators that negatively affect humans and the environment, – said the director of the laboratory, Professor Lira Gaysina. – It is possible to use chlorella vulgaris not only as a growth stimulant, but also as a biopesticide to destroy pathogenic bacteria.
Last year, the products of the laboratory were tested on farms in the Tuymazinsky district, and now they are being tested at two experimental bases – at the Bashkir State Agrarian University and the Bashkir Agricultural Research Institute. In the future – the launch of the product on the market.
The agricultural university investigates the effect of algae on the growth of spring wheat compared to other preparations. Before sowing, the seeds were treated with a suspension, which will also be used to spray the shoots during the growing season. With a positive effect, experiments will continue on other crops.
The use of an environmentally friendly stimulant is the key to obtaining organic products.
– All fertilizers currently used in Russia are inorganic and have a negative effect on the ecosystem and the human body, – said junior researcher, laboratory assistant Adelina Gizatullina. – In some countries, chlorella is used as a dietary supplement in food. In addition, chlorella increases the performance of farms that use hydroponics several times. For example, cucumbers grow 20 percent and peppers 40 percent. .
