Beneficial Bacteria and Fungi are vital for plant health and resilience. They help to control diseases, absorb nutrients and increase yield sustainably. Koppert Biological Systems invites professionals in the seed breeding industry to discuss how microbials can enforce our joint efforts to sustainably increase agricultural production. If you want to be part of this challenge, we look forward to your presence on October 14, 2015.
