Naturally Improving Plant Vitality for Healthy Harvest

Biostimulants from Corteva Agriscience help trigger natural processes inside plants and can complement existing farmer practices to produce a healthy, sustainable crop while also protecting the environment.

Enhancing and Supporting Natural Plant Processes

Biostimulants help plants do what they already do naturally, so they perform those processes better and more efficiently. Different biostimulants work in different ways, helping plants maximize nutrient use and reduce abiotic stress responses for improved growth and resilience.

Biostimulants support natural processes in plants to maximize nutrient use and reduce abiotic stress responses, contributing to improved growth and resilience.


Biostimulant Benefits

Depending on how a particular product works with a plant’s natural processes, biostimulants from Corteva can have numerous benefits in crops, such as more uniform emergence and healthier stands that can lead to more consistent flowering and fruit development, enabling subsequent yield improvements. For farmers, incorporating biostimulants from Corteva into their existing practices can allow them to use production inputs more efficiently and better manage the effects of environmental stresses.

What do biostimulants do?

Biostimulants enhance and support a plant’s natural processes. The impact of biostimulants in plants is similar to the impact of a vitamin in humans. Biostimulant products from Corteva fall into three categories:

  • Nutrient efficiency biostimulants make nutrients and water more available to plants.
  • Plant metabolism biostimulants can be applied at different stages of the plant’s life to help improve factors like growth, reproduction and quality.
  • Stress mitigation biostimulants help plants deal with environmental stresses like drought, extreme temperatures, salinity or ultraviolet radiation damage.


Regardless of how a biostimulant works in the plant, the ultimate goal is improving its health and vitality.

Corteva biostimulant products work on different processes in plants to help improve use of nutrients, growth and response to environmental stresses.


What makes biostimulants from Corteva different?

Every biostimulant product in our portfolio undergoes hundreds of tests and evaluations to assure on-farm performance. This rigorous approach allows us to understand how our products work in the plant and verify performance. Corteva biostimulant products are designed with both crop marketability and farmer use in mind. They help farmers lower inputs, reduce their environmental impact and produce healthier and higher-quality crops.

Before bringing any biological product to market, Corteva ensures there’s a thorough understanding of how the product works and how it performs for farmers. In the case of Utrisha™ N nutrient efficiency optimizer, a specifically selected bacterium helps plants capture nitrogen from the atmosphere and use it for plant nutrition, allowing farmers to potentially reduce fertilizer inputs.
