The purpose of the project is to evaluate the anti-germination, phytotoxic, and biostimulant potential of five types of forest residue. Biostimulation can be measured in several different ways, but in this study, we will measure it specifically in relation to biometric variables related to growth and yields of agricultural crops.
Depending on the results, a second project will be developed to conduct biochemical and molecular analyses to complement the agronomic tests.
