A partnership between the University of Brasília and Embrapa, the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation, has resulted in a product called Arboline, which is described as a nanoparticle biofertilizer and biostimulant.
The product is intended for foliar application to a crop.
“Its chemical characteristics, such as the nanometric size, allow a more efficient absorption by the leaves and, inside the plant, activates essential metabolic routes. The main benefits are: increased photosynthesis due to greater use of light, more efficient activation of enzymes that provide energy for the plant, greater development of roots, greater use of water and nutrients,” explained Juscimar Silva, a researcher at Embrapa.
