Business and scientific innovations about biological inputs for agriculture, with a Latin American touch. This is the inspiration for Biologicals Latam, Redagrícola's fortnightly newsletter specializing in sustainable solutions that are changing the production in the farm.
This is its second edition, with versions in Spanish and English. Highlights include the strategy of a biological multinational in Latin America, including the possibility of acquiring local firms. In addition, the transformation of a local organization that seeks to shorten the path from scientific papers to the market. The use of extreme-tolerant microorganisms and the keys to the foliar application of biostimulants are other topics that are developed in depth.

Video: Using super microorganisms to safely protect crops from drought
Water scarcity is becoming more acute in many parts of the world due to climate change. Transferring to plants the drought and salt resistance capacity of highly resistant microorganisms to these stresses is one of the most promising mitigation options. The Spanish scientist Maximino Manzanero and his team from the University of Granada have achieved extraordinary advances in the matter from bacteria found in the aridity of the Tabernas desert and in the depths of the Mariana Trench. His discoveries in processes and products are now available through the spin off company VitaNtech Biotechnology.
Keys to the effective foliar application of biostimulants
Although foliar aspersion is the most common mechanism used for applying nutrients on crops, its high variability reflects the lack of knowledge of the factors that determine the retention and penetration levels in the leaf. German scientist Heiner Goldbach explains how recent research has shed light on this subject.
