Director of Science, Joint Genome Institute, Walnut Creek, CA
Building on the successes of our Global Plant Science series of events, Global Engage is pleased to announce the 4th Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants, & Microbiome Congress: USA, co-located with the 7th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: USA, taking place November 4-5th 2019.
Increasing prioritization of sustainability in agriculture has led to rapid growth in the agricultural biologicals industry. It is also becoming clear that we cannot address the need for increased crop productivity to feed a growing world population without a better understanding of the interactions between plants and organisms in their environments.

This conference will bring together over 250 senior representatives from academia and industry to discuss these issues. Regulatory updates and market trends will be examined, as will the need for building consumer support for biologicals.
Talks on plant and soil microbiomes will focus on identifying microbes to enhance crop productivity and disease resistance, while expert entomologists will present the best strategies for biological control. Case studies across the two days will cover biopesticide and biostimulant use for increasing crop yield, improving soil health, improving nutrient uptake, and efficient water use.
With 50 talks to choose from, a drinks reception and 7 hours dedicated to networking, this meeting offers you an exceptional opportunity to interact with and learn from both the speakers and your peers. A dynamic exhibition room is also available for you to discover technology providers showcasing their technologies and solutions.
