Biostimulant Use is Growing Rapidly: Here's Why
The market for plant biostimulants has exploded over the past two decades. Why is this and will the trend continue?
How to Use Biostimulants for Fruit Production
Learn about the best biostimulants for fruit production and how to use them effectively. Explore the mechanisms behind these organic compounds and optimize your fruit yields with biostimulants.
The Incredible Benefits of Corn Steep Liquor as a Sustainable Organic Fertilizer
Discover the benefits of using corn steep liquor as an organic fertilizer. Improve soil quality, increase plant growth, and reduce your environmental impact.
How Biostimulants Improve Plant Stress Tolerance
Biostimulants can enhance plant stress tolerance and resilience, without posing harmful effects on the environment or human health. Here’s how they do it.
The Science Behind Impello’s Microbial Inoculants
An ever-growing human population and increasing climatic instability will demand changes to how we grow food. But opinions on what these changes should be are hotly debated. They often veer in one of two directions. One direction sees “back to...
Can Soil Microbes Save the Planet?
The invisible world of beneficial microbes—fungi and bacteria that aid human, plant, and ecosystem health—is now a hot topic. There are bestselling books about the fungal networks of forests, growing awareness about the influence and importance of the microbiome in...
Does Conventional Fertilizer Harm Soil Health?
Conventional—or synthetic—fertilizers have dramatically increased short-term yields over the past century. But our reliance on these chemical inputs comes with consequences, including polluted waterways, nutrient runoff, and the release of harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Alongside pesticides, monocropping, and deforestation, conventional...
Induced Resistance and Plant Immunity: Everything You Need to Know
Induced resistance is a type of plant response to pathogenic threats. Learning how it works is unlocking promising new approaches to crop disease management.
The Benefits of Rhizobacteria for Cannabis Production
Bacteria are ubiquitous. These single-celled organisms are found everywhere, from our digestive tracts to the soils that sustain us, and they stitch together the biological fabric of all complex life on Earth. A single teaspoon of soil can hold up...
How Silicic Acid Promotes Plant Growth and Stress Resilience
Silicic acid is a relatively new agricultural amendment, but it has incredible potential as a plant biostimulant. Here is everything you need to know about it.
How to Treat Cannabis Potassium Deficiency with Biostimulants

Treating cannabis potassium deficiency can involve improving nutrient uptake, rather than increasing supply. Here is how plant biostimulants make that possible.

Plant Biostimulants, What Are They?
Interest in plant biostimulants has exploded in recent years. Their ability to sustainably improve soil health, plant growth, water retention, nutrient efficiency, and overall crop quality is hard to ignore, and growers are paying attention.
Goodbye Tribus Grow & Tribus Bloom - Hello, Future!
Impello Biosciences Michael Key, CEO  03 July 2022 Hi everyone,  After 5 years of offering Tribus Grow and Tribus Bloom as part of Impello’s plant growth promoting inoculant lineup, we have news to share: the time has come for us...
Plant talk: Root Exudates

Root exudates, sometimes called plant rhizodeposition products, are organic compounds deposited (or exuded) by plant roots into surrounding substrates. These compounds are produced by plants using energy gained during photosynthesis.

Amino Acids In Agriculture
Although the majority of nitrogen fertilizers used in agriculture today are chemically synthesized to create nutrients like nitrates and ammonium, there’s growing interest in another type of nitrogen fertilizer: amino acids.
Best Soil For Your Garden
Choosing the right soil can mean the difference between a bountiful crop harvest and a crop that doesn't even make it to harvest. Your soil characteristics (think pH, organic matter, salinity) may negatively impact plant performance.
Ending the Yield Gap for Growers
Plants require a number of nutrients for growth: nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, and calcium. A primary benefit of adding microbials to the soil is that they help mobilize, solubilize, and chelate these nutrients for greater plant availability.
Rhizobacteria and Yield Improvement

Beneficial microbes contribute to plant growth via numerous modes of action. They help plants better acquire macro and micronutrients, use water more efficiently, and improve a plants tolerance to abioitic stress.

Biostimulants and Crop Responses
New additives to fertilizer programs that have gained a lot of attention — and for good reason — fall under the heading of “biostimulants.” A biostimulant is an additive to the soil that improves the growing environment for the plants without the use of chemicals. 
How Healthy Soil Makes for a Healthy Life
The Lakota Native American people of the Dakotas have a saying: Mitakuye Oyasin, which translates to “all are related.” They aren’t just referring to humans, or even to just animals. Instead, this concept speaks to a deep, underlying interconnectivity among everything from plants to animals, from people to the smallest speck of dirt.
The Role of Biofertilizers in Organic Farming
Biofertilizers are essential components of organic farming practices because combining naturally occurring microorganisms with organically derived, nutrient-rich fertilizers, provides the plants and soils with a healthy growing environment that is sustainable for future growing seasons.
