St. Louis, MO, United States

Our US Biostimulants Summit 2019 will be taking place on the 1st-2nd May 2019 in St Louis, MO, USA. The conference will bring together leading executives and experts from across the entire value chain (producers of biostimulant and plant nutrient products, farmers and agriculture suppliers, technology providers, research institutes & government representatives) for two days of informative presentations, interactive discussion & excellent networking opportunities.

Why you can't miss this event?

You will encourage new business relationships. Thanks to the most recent achievements towards a clear definition of biostimulants as an independent biological product category, you will have insight into future regulations which have major impacts on regulation. You will see global overview and market trends: geographical breakdown of plant nutrition market, analyzing which countries and crops can currently gain the most from existing biostimulants.

During the conference you will be provided with a detailed study of key factors influencing the growth of the market. You will identify the gaps globally and what should the industry be doing using biostimulants to boost natural plant health and maximize yield in the future. Moreover, you will know which of new technologies and R&D findings are improving Nutrient Use efficiency.

Over the past 10 years, interest has been significantly growing and scientific research developing into plant biostimulants. Innovative ways of using biostimulants to maximise the benefits on crop performance and yield are being discovered and further studied every day. An important new area evolving is biostimulant synergy - using biostimulants both in conjunction with other biostimulants, and with traditional agrochemicals.
