Bio Stimulant Business in Ecuador

Ecuador Bio Stimulant Business for Sale

Readers who have been reading our site for decades know that I have been raving about Bio Wash and Purely Green aka  “Ted’s Stuff” since the 1990s.   This is an amazing and versatile product, a bio degradable nano degreaser that replaces all kinds of harsh chemicals.  We have used it to spray our hemlocks in North Carolina for protection again the Wooly Adelgid blight.   We use it for numerous reasons on our orange grove in Florida.  We wash our dishes and floors and car and dogs.   We have used this as our #1 cleaner at our hotel in Ecuador.  This is a great product good for the environment and an amazing cleaner and more.

Yet no one had ever been able to describe what it was until recently when  it became classified as a bio stimulant. (1)


The European Biostimulant Industry Council (2) has been promoting the biostimulant industry and the role of plant biostimulants in making agriculture more sustainable and to agree a sector definition of biostimulants:

The General Definition of Biostimulants

Agricultural biostimulants include diverse formulations of compounds, substances and other products that are applied to plants or soils to regulate and enhance the crop’s physiological processes, thus making them more efficient.  Biostimulants act on plant physiology through different pathways than nutrients to improve crop vigour, yields, quality and post-harvest shelf life/conservation.

Biostimulants foster plant growth and development throughout the crop life cycle from seed germination to plant maturity in a number of demonstrated ways, including but not limited to:

* Improving the efficiency of the plant’s metabolism to induce yield increases and enhanced crop quality;
* Increasing plant tolerance to and recovery from abiotic stresses;
* Facilitating nutrient assimilation, translocation and use;
* Enhancing quality attributes of produce, including sugar content, colour, fruit seeding, etc.;
* Regulating and improving plant water balance;
* Enhancing certain physicochemical properties of the soil and fostering the development of complementary soil microorganisms.

What distinguishes biostimulants from traditional crop inputs?

Biostimulants operate through different mechanisms than fertilizers, regardless of the presence of nutrients in the products.
Biostimulants differ from crop protection products because they act only on the plant’s vigour and do not have any direct actions against pests or disease.

Crop biostimulation is thus complementary to crop nutrition and crop protection.

I am proud to have helped create a Bio Wash bio stimulant distributor in Ecuador.
