Can biostimulants add value to soilless productions systems?

This article is about can biostimulants add value to soilless productions systems in protected cropping. Microbial inoculants boosted microbial populations on strawberry leaf surfaces. This also occurred in coir, but only when the fertigation nutrient concentration was reduced. More work is needed to determine whether mixed microbial inoculants can reliably deliver improvements to plant production that justify their use in soilless systems in protected cropping.
