Innovation and regulatory issues have been in tension since the beginning of the development of bioinputs for the agricultural sector. Complicated registration systems and trade barriers have hindered the development of several discoveries that could contribute to soil health, as well as plant nutrition and protection. Europe and the United States are in the process of facilitating their registrations and promoting their use in the quest to achieve more sustainable standards in agriculture. Their guidelines are relevant for production strategies in Latin American export agriculture. This is a recurrent topic in several articles in this sixth BiologcalsLatam newsletter and will also be discussed in our next series on Biostimulants and Biocontrol, which will be held this Thursday, June 30, with a focus on biostimulants based on microorganisms. Check out this new edition of BiologicalsLatam and stay connected with Redagrícola's initiatives in the increasingly relevant field of bioinputs.

Focus on Colombia: bioinputs industry seeks to close the gap

Despite the country's long tradition in the use of bioinputs for agriculture, today these products do not exceed 5% of the total market for agricultural inputs. A low share that the government is seeking to reverse due to the global situation of fertilizers and the need to activate new crops with export potential.

Biologicals in the world of asparagus

With over 260,000 hectares in the five continents and given its qualities for fresh or processed consumption, asparagus is a vegetable widely marketed internationally. In its development, the use of biological inputs is increasing, to meet the demands of markets that require innocuousness and respect for the environment, without renouncing in the least to the product quality standard to which they are accustomed.
