The conference begins with a speech by Patrick Du Jardin, one of the world’s leading scientists in the field of biostimulation
The Idai Nature UPV Bioinsecticides Chair at the Technical University of Valencia will be promoting research into the mechanisms of action of biostimulants for vegetable production on 8th November at the conference hall of the Higher Technical School of Agricultural Engineers.
There is currently great interest from the agricultural sector to find out more about new solutions and technologies that maximise the performance of crops and allow farmers to stand out from their competitors.
Therefore, the objective of this conference is to study the genetic mechanisms and underlying molecules through which biostimulants enhance the growth of plants and their tolerance in situations of stress.
The conference begins with a speech by Patrick Du Jardin, one of the world’s leading scientists in the field of biostimulation. As the author and researcher of over 200 scientific studies he is recognised for his work by institutions and universities all over the world, which, along with his doctorate, from the Gembloux Faculty of Agricultural Sciences of the University of Liege (Belgium), give Patrick Du Jardin his prestigious professional reputation.
The second speech will be given by Nuria Ferrol González, a scientific researcher from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) with extensive experience in the sector and who specialises in the study of molecular mechanisms for the transport of nutrients in arbuscular mycorrhizae.
“Being aware of the mechanisms of action of biostimulants is vital in developing more effective formulations and accurately advising on their use, which is why it is vital to study it in detail at this conference”, explains Carlos Ledó, the CEO of Idai Nature.
