Abstract – The results of the study show that the use of plant growth regulator Fitovital in combination with a series of common methods for treating and protecting plants provides not only improvements in crop yields, but can also reduce a consumption rate of pesticides along with mitigating pesticide phytotoxicity, which is of great environmental importance. The plant protecting agent applied in this study, comprises succinic acid and a balanced complex of 12 trace elements and exhibits properties of not only plant growth regulator, but also a synergist, antidote, stimulator of weed seed germination, and inducer of plant disease-resistance. Accordingly, all that contributes significantly in enhancing environmental safety of agriculture.

Keywords: pesticides, phytotoxicity, Fitovital, plant growth regulator, antidote, synergist, antistressant, reducing consumption rate.
