Efficacy of TUVA a growth biostimulant growth regulator based on plant origin amino acid blend and its impact on the performance of Tomato, Cucumber, and Paprika (Bell pepper) under Greenhouse Conditions
Keywords:Organic, marketable, safe, fruit quality, plant growth regulator, biostimulant
In a greenhouse study on tomato, cucumber, and paprika, the effectiveness of TUVA product, a biostimulant and plant growth regulator manufactured from plant-origin amino acids used as organic fertilizer, was assessed. The goal of this study was to determine whether using the TUVA biostimulant, which is based on soybean and seaweed extracts and contains rich microelements essential for plant growth, can ensure good crop yield and quality in tomato, cucumber, and paprika plants growth and productivity. Over six months, the study was held in Mersin, Turkey, at three distinct sites. We looked at the physiological reactions of tomato, cucumber, and paprika plants that were grown in greenhouses and given TUVA biostimulant treatments. The use of the TUVA biostimulant increased plant height by 15% and biomass by 20%, as well as the number of fruits produced and total yield (up to 20.2%). The findings demonstrated that the TUVA product considerably improved all three crops' tonnage, homogeneous size, fruit quantity, and earliness. The fruits' quality was also improved by the TUVA product, which increased their marketability. The findings demonstrate a substantial positive correlation (R=0.9) between the TUVA product and each of the three crops' properties. The correlation coefficients further demonstrate the significant relationship (p ≤0.05) among variables. According to the trial's findings, the TUVA product has promise as a plant growth regulator for usage in greenhouse environments. It can considerably (p ≤0.05) increase the productivity and quality of tomato, cucumber, and paprika crops, and it is safe to use. According to the findings of this research, TUVA is a promising novel growth biostimulant that has the potential to enhance the performance of tomato, cucumber, and paprika plants cultivated in greenhouse environments. The methods by which TUVA improves plant development and productivity need more investigation, but the results of this study indicate that TUVA is a useful tool for producers who want to raise the yield and quality of their crops.
