Drought stress more often present in the daily agriculture practice
🌾 The current alarming drought levels are seriously endangering the work of many farmers, often forcing them to harvest earlier than they should.
💧When experiencing lack of water, the plant activates emergency procedures to conserve fluids.
This causes abiotic stress to the cells – a stress that has a non-pathogenic origin, but is internal to the plant itself.
If the situation is prolonged, the plant’s metabolism will be altered, limiting vital functions and consequently the growth. When the threshold limit is exceeded, the damage becomes irreparable, even if water is replenished.
Technology can help a lot to prolong the life of the plant as much as possible: a wise combination of essential elements can boost the strength of cells, increasing natural defenses while also promoting more positive reactions against drought stresses.
