Biostimulant World Congress 2021

Welcome to the first ever stand-alone publication for the Biostimulant World Congress (BSWC).

This e-book endeavors to provide an overview of the successful 5th edition of the Congress, which ran in Miami, Florida 29 Nov-2 Dec, and as a virtual event in the following week, 6-7 December.

We thank our e-book sponsors for making this e-book possible, which provides an overview of the Congress soon after the event, which can also be of benefit to the wider biological ag-input sector.

The Biostimulant World Congress provided a feast of ideas and information on this dynamic sector. This e-book does not try to encapsulate everything from the Congress – there were 92 posters on display for a start! - but there is a wealth of material within these pages.

In this e-book we have an exclusive interview with Rovensa CEO Eric Van Innis.

Thanks are due to our other sponsors, all of whom took advantage of the BSWC to communicate their latest activity:

  • Acadian Plant Health
  • AgriThority
  • DPH Biologicals
  • Intermag
  • Tradecorp (a Rovensa company)

The 5th BSWC in Miami provided a feel-good factor to be back as an in-person event. Enjoy this addition to the New AG International E-Book Series.

Water-Soluble Fertilizers – Where Quality Matters

New AG International is particularly proud to release an e-book in one of its founding topics – water-soluble fertilizers.

As the global population grows and demand for fruit and vegetables increases, so too does the importance of water-soluble fertilizer to growers.

And an important trait of water-soluble fertilizers is their lack of substitutability.

One of the core messages from this e-book is the quality level that needs to be obtained when producing water-soluble fertilizers.

We hear from our two sponsors ADOB and Tessenderlo Kerley International, as well as market analysis from New AG International.

We also have a Q&A with one of China's leading water-soluble fertilizer producers, and learn about the production route for technical MAP.

Sustainability through Innovation

New AG International has released a new addition to its e-book series on Sustainability through Innovation.

In March, during UN’s World Water Day, Secretary-General António Guterres said: “The value of water is profound and complex. There is no aspect of sustainable development that does not fundamentally rely upon it.”

This quotation resonates with our featured article by Jeremy Stroud, who explores some of the emerging water challenges affecting the global agri-food sector.

The e-book also looks at biological inputs and how gene-editing could be part of this product group.

We hear also how companies are bringing sustainable practices across their businesses, as well as product offerings. In the spotlight are Idai Nature, Tradecorp and Van Iperen.

SCRSFs – The Next Generation of Fertilizers and Beyond

New AG International is proud to announce the release of its e-book on slow- controlled-release and stabilised fertilizers (SCRSFs).

We have an exclusive interview with Taylor Pursell, a surname synonymous with controlled-release fertilizer in the form of Pursell Agri-Tech.

Lara Moody from the TFI talks us through the thinking behind the EPA-USDA competition to find the next generation of enhanced efficiency fertilizers.

We hear from BASF on its inhibitor products; ICL on developments in coatings; Saviolife on slow-release nitrogen, and Milliken on the benefits of coloration in SCRSFs.

And if that’s not enough, we have a primer on SCRSFs to help you unscramble all those acronyms.

Sustainable Agriculture

How do you define sustainable agriculture? For me it’s about agricultural practices, products and inputs that benefit farmers without causing a harmful impact to the environment. At the same time, it’s also about balancing environmental impact with economic factors.

Throughout this edition of the New AG International E-Book Series we hear from agri leaders, farmers and educators who are passionate about sustainable agriculture. Discover why sustainable agriculture is of critical importance to AlgaEnergy and what we can be doing as an industry to support the development of sustainable solutions for the next generation of farmers.

Women in Agriculture

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ (FAO) work on Gender ‘Empowering Rural Women, Powering Agriculture’, the gender gap between men and women creates elevated costs to the agriculture industry, society, economy as well as women themselves. The Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR)’s Gender in Agriculture Partnership (GAP) calls for action to promote gender equity and empower women in agriculture.

With this in mind we feel its important to do our part and have a strong commitment to help give opportunity to Women where we can.

Military Veterans in Agriculture

What do Cargill, Nestlé, John Deere & Dog Tag Inc have in common? They all have links to hiring veterans in Ag.

Through video panels, interviews, articles and research data, all with the support of the Project Opportunity Alliance, this e-book looks at schemes and strategies to encourage veterans into the agriculture workforce.
