Abstract:

Nowadays, farmers and entrepreneurs strive to obtain higher and better quality seeds and plant products containing fibre by providing plants with optimal growth conditions using agrotechnical methods such as crop rotation, enhancing soil quality and protection against diseases. The use of biostimulants, substances that promote plant growth and resistance, seems to be the best way to achieve satisfying results. Biostimulants are included in the modern plant industry and environment-friendly crop management as they enhance the quality of crops while reducing chemical inputs. In textile plants, biostimulants can affect fibre structures regardless of the part of the plant they come from – seed, bast or leaf. The possible positive influence may be related to the increase in fibre length, shape, diameter, strength, flexibility, abrasion resistance, moisture absorbency, and antimicrobial properties. The purpose of this review is to better understand the unique characteristics of different biostimulants, which have a great influence on crop and fibrous plant properties.
