Acadian Plant Health™ agricultural products support your crop’s ability to manage biotic & abiotic stress. Stress in plants is difficult to avoid when it comes to commercial agriculture. Applying Acadian Plant Health™ crop protection products will help your crops grow, and even flourish, in challenging environments.
Use Acadian Plant Health™ agricultural products to improve your crop’s ability to deal with stresses like:
In a trial conducted on corn, applications of an Acadian Plant Health™ crop care product led to better visual plant development, despite extreme heat stress conditions.
In a citrus nursery trial with Carrizo and Swingle rootstocks, plants treated with an Acadian Plant Health™ product showed continued crop growth when exposed to drought stress.
The complex mix of bioactive compounds in Acadian Plant Health™ agricultural products helps crops grow well under water and heat stress conditions. Several trials have proven that Acadian Plant Health™ products help plants open their stomata (pores) when optimal conditions exist for improved photosynthesis. When water stress occurs, treated plants can close their pores more quickly so that they can better retain water and keep hydrated.
In this strawberry trial, strawberries treated with an Acadian Plant Health™ product yielded 19% more trays, despite being exposed to salinity stress. As shown in the photos, treated plants grew more vigorously and showed fewer symptoms of salt burn.
Acadian agricultural products promote healthier crops in high salt soils. High salt destroys roots so that water and nutrients can’t be absorbed as effectively. Scientists have found that applications of an Acadian Plant Health™ product effects a certain gene which causes the plant to better cope with salinity stress.
In this pistachio trial, plants treated with an Acadian Plant Health™ crop care product appeared healthier, as they had bigger and greener leaves, four days after a pathogen was introduced to the soil of each tray.
Many trials have proven that certain Acadian agricultural products stimulate key defense mechanisms in crops and this improves the ability of plants to defend themselves against disease, insects and other stresses. Suppression of diseases and insects are often seen when certain Acadian products are used.

Make applications – either foliar or soil applied – at the recommended rates and timings listed on Acadian Plant Health™ product labels. For plant stress management, applications can be made as required, or immediately prior to or following stress periods such as frost, heat stress and drought. Acadian Plant Health™ crop protection products mix well with pest control products so that you can create your own synergistic mix.
Adverse growing conditions – such as drought, flood, heat, disease and insects – reduce the potential for improved crop yields. Multiple bioactive compounds found within Acadian agricultural products play a role in helping plants tolerate these stress conditions.
