As part of an on-going commitment to innovation in crop protection, Arysta LifeScience is delighted to sponsor a Hub at CropTec 2017.

The Biostimulants Hub, located at the Arysta LifeScience exhibition stand, will host a variety of informative speakers from across the industry, as well as provide a platform for discussions about integrated crop protection solutions.

On the exhibition stand, Arysta LifeScience will be showcasing a full product portfolio, including herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, seed treatment and biostimulants.

Bruce Morton, Arysta LifeScience Country Manager for UK & Ireland, said: “CropTec has grown hugely during the past few years and we are delighted to be showing our support to both the event and arable industry by increasing our presence.

“Our portfolio demonstrates that we are a fully-integrated crop protection company so we look forward hosting the Biostimulants Hub on our stand.”

Taking place on November 29-30 at the East of England Showground in Peterborough, the event aims to inform arable farmers and agronomists about the latest innovative methods to improve efficiency and reduce costs of production.

This includes Biostimulants – natural extracts that foster plant health throughout the life-cycle, acting as a complementary addition to crop nutrition and crop protection products.

Mr Morton added: “Maintaining plant health is crucial for growers looking to produce an efficient crop, because it improves a plant’s natural defence against pests and diseases.

“We have seen a heightened interest in plant health-related products, including biostimulants, as growers and agronomists look for ways to enhance existing crop protection methods.”

Among the Hub speakers is Dr Kate Storer,

a Research Scientist in the Crop Physiology group at ADAS.

During her presentation,

Dr Storer will explore what Biostimulants are as well as providing a review of a recent report commissioned for the AHDB, that investigates the function, efficacy and value of biostimulant products available for UK cereals and oilseeds.

Also speaking is Robert Cannings of the European Biostimulants Industry Council (EBIC) and Nick Myers of ProCam.
