US Biostimulants Summit 2019

Date: 1st May 2019 - 2nd May 2019 Location: St. Louis - MO - USA

ACI’s US Biostimulants Summit 2019 will be taking place on the 1st-2nd May 2019 in St Louis, MO, USA. The conference will bring together leading executives and experts from across the entire value chain (producers of biostimulant and plant nutrient products, farmers and agriculture suppliers, technology providers, research institutes & government representatives) for two days of informative presentations, interactive discussion & excellent networking opportunities.

Why you can’t miss this event?

You will encourage new business relationships. Thanks to the most recent achievements towards a clear definition of biostimulants as an independent biological product category, you will have insight into future regulations which have major impacts on regulation. You will see global overview and market trends: geographical breakdown of plant nutrition market, analyzing which countries and crops can currently gain the most from existing biostimulants.

During the conference you will be provided with a detailed study of key factors influencing the growth of the market. You will identify the gaps globally and what should the industry be doing using biostimulants to boost natural plant health and maximize yield in the future. Moreover, you will know which of new technologies and R&D findings are improving Nutrient Use efficiency.

Over the past 10 years, interest has been significantly growing and scientific research developing into plant biostimulants. Innovative ways of using biostimulants to maximise the benefits on crop performance and yield are being discovered and further studied every day. An important new area evolving is biostimulant synergy – using biostimulants both in conjunction with other biostimulants, and with traditional agrochemicals.

Afrikelp has a long history in the production of sustainable seaweed raw materials and products. Since 1971, we have been committed to reducing agricultural risks by providing trusted seaweed solutions.

We are a seaweed manufacturer, specialising in the production of naturally high-quality extracts, that support agricultural crop production and provide the essential bio stimulants to the plant.

Our liquid seaweed extracts are produced from sustainably harvested Ecklonia maxima, a giant brown seaweed species which grows in abundance at the South-West Coast of South Africa.

The unique composition of natural bio stimulants in the extracts – predominantly auxin – stimulate root, shoot and fruit growth in plants. The auxin, as the most important plant hormone, is the foundation of all growth and development processes in the plant, thus synchronising, stimulating and improving agricultural crop production.

Our extracts are quality controlled to ensure that every application meets exceptional consistency standards and we can proudly say that Afrikelp is ISO 9001 certified.


Afrikelp aims to be recognised as the number one trusted partner for targeted seaweed solutions in agriculture.




ACI has put together a range of packages to suit your requirements. These range from branding options, to full scale partner solutions and can be tailored to meet your objectives and budgets.

If you are launching a new product or service and wish to gain visibility and brand recognition within your industry, contact us today!
