Biostimulant World Congress – A crucial event for agricultural innovation

In the world of modern agriculture, the search for innovation and sustainable solutions is essential to face today’s challenges. The Biostimulant World Congress (BWC) emerges as a leading knowledge and collaboration event that brings together industry leaders and experts to explore and share knowledge about biostimulants and their impact on agriculture.

The Biostimulant World Congress is a global event that brings together experts, academics, companies and professionals from the agricultural industry to discuss and share advances in the field of biostimulants, which are agricultural products designed to improve the growth, health and yield of plants, as well as to increase their resistance to diseases and abiotic stress.

The BWC serves as a forum for the exchange of knowledge and experiences on biostimulants, where scientific research, technological advances and case studies relevant to the agricultural industry are presented. This is why it is held annually, to keep the scientific and business community updated on the latest developments in biostimulants, as well as to promote innovation and progress in this constantly evolving field.

Attending the Biostimulant World Congress is a unique opportunity to keep abreast of the latest innovations in biostimulants, network with industry experts and explore new business opportunities.

The last BWC was celebrated in November 2023 in Milan, and Sun Chemicals Services director Ferran Soldevila had the privilege to participate and actively contribute to the event. He performed a conference about biostimulant registration under EU Reg. 2019/1009 (FPR).
