Sensors on flowers prove that nano-fertilizers help to save energy resources

B+H Solutions GmbH has developed innovative fertilizers that pose a solution to the increasing energy costs. As the energy costs are still increasing, many farmers with greenhouses face a crucial problem in cultivating their crops. The solution B+H Solutions brings to the problem is an innovative product assortment: the German company develops a metal-based nano-fertilizer that possesses trace elements, such as copper (Cu), silver (Ag), iron (Fe), boron (B), calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) with nanotechnology. This combination leads to an increase in photosynthesis rate followed by a higher production rate.

Recent study gives data for increased photosynthesis rate
A very recent study demonstrated that applying the products from B+H Solutions GmbH led to a significant difference in photosynthesis rate in Gerbera plants. “We are glad that all the hypotheses and responses from our long-term customers can be verified by data measurement,” says Elmar Buder, partner of Prof. Dr. Martin Heinisch. The trial was performed for six weeks and ended very recently in May 2022. The most significant results were gained by measuring the photosynthesis rate and lightning efficacy directly on the leaves of the plants by using Sendot sensors (Sendot Research B.V., Netherlands). The impact of the B+H Solutions product resulted in up to doubled photosynthesis rate in the plants compared to plants treated with the standard nutritional solution. Untreated plants demonstrated lower photosynthesis efficacy and thus a lower production rate.

“The results are still better than we hoped. With the use of the sensors, we could identify the exact rate of photosynthesis increase.” Moreover, B+H Solutions products reduce stress levels compared to the untreated control. This result is in line with the previous studies from the company indicating the various positive effects on any kind of crop. The patented concept of B+H Solutions leads to strong and healthy plants that demonstrate enhanced flowering, an increase in yield of up to 20%, tolerance to either abiotic or biotic stress, and prolonged shelf-life of end-products such as fruits and vegetables.

The increase in photosynthesis rate can be used to save light in the greenhouses and thus, reduce energy costs for the customers. This enables the profitable growth of healthy and strong plants even in times of energy crisis.

If you are interested in this study, come and visit the B+H Solutions GmbH representatives at the HortiContact in Gorinchem this week. You will find them starting today at the booth of Sendot Research B.V.
