Biostimulants are a widely accepted addition to horticultural crops, promoted by a global market valued at US$2.5 billion. However, the huge range of products with long lists of potential benefits is not always supported by rigorous science. In Australia, the absence of regulation makes this situation more unpredictable. Jessica Bell, a recent honours graduate from the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) at the University of Tasmania, adds some valuable science to this field in her study of selected plant biostimulants applied to strawberry in a soilless production system.
