Shelly is extracted from the exoskeleton of crustaceans (standard industrial process). It is suitable for applications in agriculture thanks to its low content of heavy metals. In foliar applications it allows several benefits, such as: direct action against parasites and pathogens, increased microorganisms useful to the crop, better defences against biotic stress. It also regulates plant growth, development, nutrition and tolerance to abiotic stress. In fertigation, Shelly improves roots development and stimulates a higher resistance against the attacks of nematodes, bacteria and fungi.
