The conference on the “Use of bioproducts to improve agriculture” was attended by several AgritechMurcia companies. Key aspects for the present and future development of agricultural production and to contribute to a sustainable agriculture have been analysed.
On the other hand, it was demonstrated that knowledge of agricultural production techniques (with certificates for organic farming) leads to a significant reduction in waste by using products with zero environmental impact.
The various presentations by the participants focused on products that increase the efficiency of organic matter and fertilisers, improving soil structure conditions to optimise crop yields.
Agritech companies, permanent innovation.
Pedro Casas, director of Global Agronomy, SYMBORG, explained how, through the mycorrhiza-forming fungus, Glomus Iranicum var. tenuihypharum, we improve crop profitability and achieve a more efficient use of water.
Anaïs de Gea Hernández, head of the Molecular Biology Area of Microgaia Biotech S.L. explained the procedure of “Real-time PCR as a tool for rationalising the use of synthetic chemical inputs. Detection and monitoring of populations of phytopathogenic and beneficial microorganisms in crops”.
Francisco Javier Lucas Fernández, CEO of Lucas Biotech and vice-president of ABIOMUR, spoke about the proposal of the company LucasBiotech and its disruptive change in agricultural production strategies.
Carlos Mirabet Segura, CEO and Agronomist Engineer of AGROZYMES, SL, presented the development of P solubilising bacteria in crops in the Region of Murcia.
Innovative biological solutions, maximum performance and environmental protection
Innovative biological solutions that maximise crop yields and protect the environment while meeting the challenge of sustainability were studied.
We also analysed the detection and monitoring of populations of microorganisms, both those that can cause diseases in crops and those that are beneficial for agricultural soils and plants, in order to reduce the risks and the need to use phytosanitary products and synthetic fertilisers.
All this generates effective solutions that produce a clear added value for farmers and their environment, so that they can add value to their work and allow them to evolve and transform agronomic management strategies towards a more profitable, more sustainable, more innovative and more advanced agriculture.
This technical conference was attended by farmers, agronomists, agricultural engineers, technical agricultural engineers and other experts from a wide range of specialised personnel. All of them work in the agricultural, food and forestry sector, land managers and other economic agents and SMEs, whose field of action is rural areas.
