Algae have been used in agriculture as fertilizers for a long time. Recently, they have also been applied to crops as biostimulants that target plant growth promotion and tolerance to biotic (herbivores, fungi, bacteria, viruses) or abiotic stresses. In addition, algae contain bioactive compounds that have been shown to maintain the health of domestic animals or aquaculture species.
