Biostimulants in particular are gaining traction. David Lanciault, President and CEO of Agricen Sciences, says research and application in the field shows a promising future for biostimulants. He adds the first order of business is demonstrating where they fit in within the broader biological sector. That can be a little tricky when industry, the states, USDA, and EPA have not yet defined what biostimulants are.
Biopesticides used in combination with conventional fungicides have proven themselves in recent years. Now, biostimulants and biofertilizers are moving into the accepted category as companies big and small introduce products that deliver grower beneifts. It is a trend that is building quickly, according to Dave Lanciault, president and CEO, Agricen Sciences.
