04 Feb Biostimulant Conference 2019
The 2nd biostimulant conference was held at Harrahs Atlantic City from 29th to 20th June
Biostimulants have proven their worth with years of R&D support and clear results in-field. With strategic intricacies unique to the biological origin of these products, the conference organised by Meister Media focused on on doing business and bridging the gap between the science and commercialization.
With the segment projected to reach $2.9 billion by 2021, growing at 15% per year, biostimulants are now recognised as a means to not only increase yields, quality of product but reduction in use of artificial fertilizers and pesticides.
The opportunity is best shown by a slide from Luca Bonini, President of the European Biostimulant Industry Council (EBIC) and also the CEO of Italpollina
The image shows that there is a gap between actual yield that farmers achieve, the potential that could be achieved and the theoretical yield.[/vc_column_text]
