"I think we've underappreciated how the microbiome is a fundamental part of the evolution and the resiliency and the adaptation of crops". With this quote, Professor Patrick Brown highlighted one of the great lessons of the Biostimulants and Biocontrol meeting that Redagrícola held in Lima at the end of September. The distinguished academic from the University of Davis, one of the most innovative centers for the development of new technologies for agriculture, explained that the emphasis on the biome was one of the great novelties of this meeting, which was attended by scientists and global companies, with a Latin American focusThe meeting attracted more than 1,200 participants in its two days of sessions in two parallel rooms. The meeting made it clear that Latin America is not only the world's fastest growing region in the use of biostimulants and biocontrols, as indicated by studies by the specialized firm DunhamTrimmer. It is also home to a series of scientific breakthroughs and discoveries that are setting standards for the global industry. We saw it in Lima and we will surely see it in Cancun, on July 5 and 6, 2023, when we hold the third edition of this meeting. We invite you to attend and join these trends that are building the agriculture of the future.
