Crop Protection

Plant Stress and Stimulation

As the need for solutions high on efficacy as well as environment friendliness becomes imperative, UPL is building a powerful portfolio of biological solutions that answer modern agricultural needs.

Adding value to crop protection

UPL’s extensive Plant Stress & Stimulation (PSS) pipeline signals the dawn of a new era in sustainable agriculture as a key part of integrated crop production intensification programs.

UPL's PSS portfolio supports crop stimulation, nutrition as well as protection and when combined with conventional products, improves crop resilience to weather risks and biotic stress for improved yield, quality and consequent grower financial wellbeing in a sustainable way.

unlock-5

A portfolio specifically designed to Unlock crop development potential at each of the 5 Crop Life Cycle stages for sustainable and intensified production!

The plant growth life cycle has five critical and interdependent growth phases that directly affect the ultimate outcome: the development of a crops’ genetic potential for enhanced yield and quality.

UPL's PSS portfolio enhances development of the crop life cycle by inducing plant biological efficiency during each of the five primary growth stages and by helping plants to better cope with a variety of stress and growth-limiting factors.

By harnessing the power derived from nature,
growers can see numerous benefits including:

  • Improved soil health and associated nutrient availability, uptake and plant use efficiency
  • Accelerated, more vigorous and uniform crop emergence /greenup
  • Robust vegetative development, structure and photosynthesis
  • Uniform, enhanced and earlier flowering with improved pollination, grain/fruit/tuber/boll set and retention
  • More uniform, earlier and improved harvest quality and shelf life
  • Increased net marketable yield and grower profitability

UPL PSS Portfolio

From soil to harvest

Growth Vitality Technology

For growers looking to maximize yields, unique multi-component technology supports plant metabolism at key stages during the crop life cycle for more vigorous establishment, vegetative development and optimized reproductive growth and can be applied as a seed, in-furrow, drip or foliar treatment for increased marketable yield.

portfolio-1

NUE/Fruit Set
Technology

For growers looking for new tools to unlock their crop yield and quality potential, this unique seaweed extract-based technology has increased more consistent biological activity due to a unique cold/physical extraction process preserving active substances in addition to removal of alginate for superior sprayability and tank mix compatibility. By supporting plant physiological growth factors and nutrient use efficiency, secures and increases fruit set as well as improving harvest quality.

portfolio-2

Finishing
Technology

A patented, bio-available and organically-certified technology platform that can be applied as a soil drench, drip or foliar application at the early vegetative/active tillering, pre/early-flowering and grain/fruit-filling stages for improved crop standability (anti-lodging due to increased cell wall strength), vigour (resistance to abiotic stress), grain & fruit set (reduced flower/fruit abortion) and enhanced grain/fruit sizing and quality (increased Brix/shelf life/uniformity/reduced physiological disorders)

portfolio-3

Anti-Stress
Technology

For growers looking for solutions to reduce abiotic stress impact, this technology platform accelerates physiological pathways that enhance photosynthesis efficiency – especially valuable under nutritional stress. Key grower benefit is to maintain crop vigor and yield under stress conditions that occur during the vegetative growth stage.
