• Enhances plant anti-oxidant levels that assist with buffering against environmental stress
• Mitigates nutrient imbalances and toxicity in plants
• Reinforces canopy architecture leading to improved photosynthesis efficiencies and reduced sunburn and heat stress
• Toughens plant cell walls making it more difficult for invading pathogens to infect and reduces the palatability of the plant to insects.
• Thicker cell walls which reduces moisture loss and postharvest breakdown.
