The world`s population is constantly increasing, the areas intended for the production of bio-mass and bio-fuels are care continuously growing, while the food demand of mankind is an a continuous ascending trend. In this context, an increased efficiency in the use of agricultural areas and in obtaining large and steady productions, in compliance with the requirements of sustainable development of the agricultural eco-system, is a priority; this priority requires adequate technological measures, like a good protection of crops starting with the seed phase, application of effective treatments at the right moment, etc. Therefore, in the present paper we present the results of treatment with bio-stimulants applied as a seed treatment or in different stages of vegetation at maize. This treatment has as a result increase the quantity and quality production, to reduce phytotoxic environmental impact, a good management of resources and to reduce production costs in terms of environmental conservation. In experiment we test two bio-stimulator products for seed and different stages of vegetation with three graduations for each product (2 l/ha; 3 l/ha; 2 l+2 l/ha) Megafol and Cropmax. Both treatments has a result uniform flowering, growth rate, increased production and improved quality growth by increasing protein and starch compared to the control.
