Event description
This one-day event will bring together stakeholders from across the industry, to discuss opportunities for agricultural biosolutions.

About this Event

The agricultural biosolution market has seen continual growth over the past few years, with biopesticides (plant protection products) and biostimulants (crop nutrition). However, there is still a need to optimise their use, particularly for arable crops. Major gaps exist in research relating to early stage discovery and screening of new candidates, large scale production, formulation and application. Developments with precision agriculture with decision support systems, pre-symptomatic detection and localised application are expected to improve their performance and cost effectiveness. The workshop will also consider data requirements with current and proposed regulations.

Addressing some of the key issues, Crop Health and Protection (CHAP), one of the four Centres for Agricultural Innovation, brings together leading scientists with state of the art facilities, to help drive research and innovation, in order to transform crop systems.
