Acadian Plant Health™ solutions produce crops with full, well-developed plant roots that can make the most out of available water and nutrients for crop establishment. Our agricultural products enhance root growth and development and this, in turn, improves plant health. Healthier plants are better at coping with and recovering from environmental stress, and this leads to better quality crops.
Plants are often exposed to harsh growing conditions during early root development. Use Acadian Plant Health™ biostimulant crop care solutions to:
In this field trial with young coffee plants, enhanced root growth was seen in plants treated with an Acadian Plant Health™ agricultural product.
In this wine grapes trial, applications of an Acadian Plant Health™ product led to a 100% increase in total plant root length.
In this field trial, applications of an Acadian Plant Health™ product led to a 45% increase in the number of nodules in the roots of alfalfa plants. Nodules store beneficial bacteria that convert nitrogen into a format the plant can use. With optimum amounts of nitrogen, alfalfa plants can produce optimum yields.
In this lettuce field trial, significant improvements were observed in early plant root development when an Acadian Plant Health™ product was added to a grower’s standard program. Treated plants showed an increase in total root length of 77% and an increase in root surface area of 33% over the control.

Applying Acadian Plant Health™ products at earlier stages of crop development (i.e. to seedlings, cuttings or root treatments) at the recommended rates and timings helps improve crop establishment. To encourage root growth of new transplants, treat roots with a solution of an Acadian Plant Health™ product prior to transplanting. For plant establishment benefits, please consult your local Acadian representative to receive specific rates and application instructions for your crop.
Growth, crop quality and yield all depend on a strong plant with large, healthy root development. Multiple bioactive compounds found within Acadian agricultural products help increase plant root growth and crop establishment.
