Dear Participants,

This fourth announcement comes with important news. We have decided to extend the deadline for abstracts submission until 30th June and we are working to make the Symposium a knowledge enriching and unforgettable experience. Our lema inspires us: ‘Plants for soil and crop health’.

The event will be hybrid so those participants who cannot travel will be able to assist virtually.

The distinguished keynotes will allow us to keep updated with the study of soil microbiology in relation to the approached techniques as well as the last contributions of these practices in the field of regenerative agriculture to which we are all committed.

These are our keynote speakers:
• Luis Wall. Centre for Soil Biochemistry and Microbiology. National University of Quilmes – CONICET. Argentina. Soil microbiomes and their interaction with biofumigation, green manures and cover crops.
• Miguel De Cara. IFAPA. Junta de Andalucía, Spain. Biosolarisation for agroecological transition of protected crops.
• Matt Back. Harper Adams University, UK. Management of potato cyst nematode using biofumigants.
• Peter-Jan Jongenelen. International Product Manager Soil Health Plants. The Netherlands. Research on cover crop mixtures, soil biodiversity and particularly pathogens.
• Dale Gies. High Performance Seeds, Inc. United States. Application of biofumigation in agricultural production.
• Giampiero Patalano. Nutrien Italia S.p.A. Italy. Biofumigant meals/liquids – innovative applications of biofumigation

Another detail that will allow us to enjoy these days is the social headquarters of Agrupación Mallorca San Pedro where the symposium will be held. It is located in España avenue at the ravine foot and surrounded by a spectacular natural environment; it will be the perfect setting for our meeting! We thank this important local institution for their support and hope that spring will be ideal for our event. If any company would like to collaborate with the financing of this event please write to [email protected].

For all those who would like tourist information about San Pedro, we have added a page with details on our official website (https://biofumigacion.ar/alojamientos-y-otros-servicios-en-san-pedro/ ).
