Research Geneticist, USDA-ARS; Adjunct Professor, Plant Pathology and Molecular Plant Sciences, Washington State University
A key focus of the event is facilitating collaboration between the over 250 senior representatives from industry and academia who attend. In terms of content, the conference will examine the latest technologies, strategies and research in the growing biologicals industry.
Increasing prioritization of sustainability in agriculture has led to rapid growth in the agricultural biologicals industry. The benefits of biological products in agriculture are significant, and developments in technology and research make agricultural biologicals an exciting, dynamic industry in which to work and study. It is also becoming clear that we cannot address the need for increased crop productivity to feed a growing world population without better understanding of the interactions between plants and the organisms in their environments, which is why this is the perfect time to learn more about plant and soil microbiome research, and the biocontrol and biostimulant products that are being developed to serve this need.
The conference will feature expert led presentations, extended panels, and roundtable discussions on topics such as metagenomics methods, product commericialization, industry-academia collaboration, and agricultural biologicals regulation.
