Bioeffectors are fungal strains of Trichoderma, Penicillium and Sebacinales, as well as bacterial strains of Bacillus and Pseudomonades with well-characterized root growth promoting and nutrient-solubilising potential are currently being tested in numerous experiments.
Additional natural extraction products of seaweed, compost and plant extracts, as well as their purified active compounds with protective potential against biotic and abiotic stresses are also tested in various combinations.
These features offer perspectives for a more efficient use of nutrients by strategic combination with the alternative fertilisation strategies.
