The ecosystem of sustainable agriculture takes a step forward with the creation of Biological Solutions for Sustainable Agriculture, a joint research unit launched by Tradecorp, a global company specialized in crop biostimulation and sustainable nutrition, in collaboration with the Centre for Plant Biotechnology and Genomics (CBGP), a joint center between the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) and the National Institute of Agricultural and Food Research and Technology (INIA/CSIC). CBGP is a Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence. The goal of this initiative is to develop global bio-based products and solutions for a more sustainable agriculture.
The alliance will work as an innovation accelerator, expanding the ecosystem of action in the field of biostimulants, promoting research, generating knowledge and developing product solutions.
In this context, the Biological Solutions for Sustainable Agriculture research unit aims to offer solutions to the challenges established in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is aligned with the European strategy Farm to Fork which aims to achieve most of the objectives defined in the European Green Deal. These pillars "constitute the European drivers for this new sustainability strategy, which is an opportunity for the CBGP and Tradecorp to respond and contribute to achieving these ambitious objectives", says Antonio Molina, Director of the CBGP (UPM, INIA/CSIC).
The commitment of the companies in the sector is fundamental, in this concern, José Alfredo García, COO of bionutrition in the Rovensa group explains how "the mission of the bionutrition unit of Tradecorp and Rovensa is to feed the planet through healthy and safe solutions, and for this reason we work promoting sustainable agriculture and contribute to address global challenges such as overpopulation, climate change and the decrease in natural resources”.
