Video: the fantastic language between Trichoderma and plants, a key to the development of bioinputs

Recent research has revealed an incredible phenomenon: the mechanisms by which plants and microorganisms communicate, understand each other and adjust their behavior. This is presented by the renowned Mexican scientist José López Bucio, who explains how this process works based on recent explorations of the Trichogramma-fungus. As the Professor-Researcher at the Institute of Chemical-Biological Research of the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo points out, these interactions open the doors to a world where these living beings show a highly developed behavior, which has been key to the development of bioinputs for agriculture.

Research identifies the exact moment when heat stress hits corn hardest

Many of the new biostimulants coming to market seek to improve the resistance of plants to heat shock and the stress generated by high temperatures. However, it is key to know when and where to apply them so that they achieve their objective. In this framework, Professor Kevin Begcy, Ph.D., and his team at the University of Florida are studying how crops respond to heat stress.

Dr. Patrick Brown Kicks Off Redagricola's Series On Biostimulants And Biocontrol That Will Run Throughout 2022

How to measure and be more efficient in the use of nutrients when using biostimulants.

This is the opening theme of the Biostimulants Series that Redagricola will present throughout 2022. There will be online sessions in which participants can dedicate one day per month to delve into the technical aspects of biological inputs and new tools in agriculture.

SAS Expands Its Bio-inputs Catalog With Latin American Flavors

The Spanish firm bets on coffee and bananas to expand its influence in biostimulants to the ​​bioprotection sector. By doing so, it seeks to boost its growth in the Americas, where it makes 50% of its income.

8 keys on the new process for the approval of biopesticides in Europe

The European Union seeks to facilitate the processes that allow the application of biopesticides in agricultural land, where food is produced for its 450 million inhabitants. Therefore, as part of their “Farm to Fork” program, the member states approved new regulations to facilitate the approval of microorganisms and their use as active substances in phytosanitary products. Thus, European farmers will have new options to replace their chemical pesticides and shift towards new solutions consistent "with sustainable food systems", according to the continental authority.
