Biopesticides Europe 2023

Date: 6th June 2023 - 7th June 2023 Location: Brussels - Belgium

ACI’s Biopesticides Europe 2023 will be taking place on 6th & 7th June 2023 in Brussels, Belgium.

Both the global and European biopesticides market has been growing steadily in recent years. Following new regulations and a growing demand for sustainable agricultural practices, biopesticides are expected to continue expanding – fast becoming an essential biocontrol tool for farmers and growers all over Europe. Nonetheless, restrictive regulations and complex registration processes continue to pose a significant challenge for product commercialisation.

Our two-day event will bring together key industry stakeholders, researchers and representatives from regulatory bodies to discuss current challenges and future opportunities within the industry.

The conference will also provide updates on market growth along with significant advances in new and innovative technologies as well as R&D projects.

Join us at this event in Brussels to gain further insights into how the producers of biopesticides are rising to meet industry challenges and engage in excellent networking opportunities.

Early Confirmed speakers include: CropLife Europe, Oro Agri, CHR Hansen, Marrone Bio Innovations, Solasta Bio, Atlantica Agricola and more!

MONAS Technology has been developing microorganism products and introducing them into the agricultural production since 2008. At MONAS Technology our mission is to search for novel technological approaches and preparations that will improve the crop yields, in the long term, while contributing to the crop protection against diseases. We focus on developing original preparations based on beneficial soil bacteria that act as fungal pathogen antagonists while positively affecting the physical properties of the soil and contributing to the soil-nutrient cycle. Last year we launched two very promising new bio-products: 1. Against pathogenic bacteria in plants and 2. Trichoderma into soil. This year we are waiting for registration new product against Aphid.

The simultaneous complex activity against plant pathogens while improving soil nutrients accessibility, degradation of pesticides, and uptake by the cultivated plants belongs among the main advantages of our microbial preparations. We manufacture our products in the Czech Republic and sell them to our customers directly, or in collaboration with several distributors.
