The key role of Biologicals for Indian agriculture at the second edition of the project Valagro for Future Farming

New Delhi (India), 21st February 2019 - Valagro, a leading company in the production and marketing of biostimulants and nutritional specialities, launches the second edition of the Valagro for Future Farming project. The company intends to use this event to promote and strengthen, in its main target markets, its commitment to building tomorrow's agriculture by developing and supplying increasingly innovative and sustainable solutions and technologies. The centrepiece of the event, entitled "The key role of Biologicals for Indian Agriculture", which will be held in Delhi in conjunction with the BioAg World Congress (18th - 20th February 2019), will be the launch of Valagro's new line of microbial-based solutions. The event is therefore an important opportunity to show - together with leading experts and opinion leaders in the sector - Valagro's development prospects in the field of biologicals, prospects pursued by the Group's Indian subsidiary, Valagro BioSciences Ltd, following its achievement of compliance with the Biological Diversity Act (2002) from the National Biodiversity Authority (NBA) in relation to the use of 10 strains of bacteria/microorganisms to produce solutions for the Indian agricultural market.

Giuseppe Natale, the CEO of Valagro:

"Compliance with the Biological Diversity Act recognised by the NBA is truly a turning point in Valagro's history, and in the journey so far of the Indian subsidiary, Valagro BioSciences. Moreover, it represents a concrete step forward towards realising Valagro's long-term global strategy, which is to take a leading role in the biologicals sector for the agriculture of the future, an agriculture that is truly more productive, more efficient and more sustainable. Thanks to our exclusive GeaPower technology platform, developed at our research facilities in Italy and India, Valagro will be able to expand its range of innovative and sustainable solutions, including biostimulants, biofertilisers and biocontrol products. We thus give substance to our commitment to better serve farmers all over the world, by providing them with real support in achieving higher yields, better quality crops in a more sustainable way. And this is the ultimate goal of the Valagro for Future Farming project in India, as in the rest of the world.

Sanjay K. Tokala, Country Manager, Valagro BioSciences:

"The launch of the new line of microorganism-based solutions is the result of a journey begun in 2016 and successfully completed two years later, with the achievement of compliance with the Biological Diversity Act, also achieved thanks to significant investments to improve the Indian subsidiary's research and production assets, with particular reference to the research centre and the Pashamylaram facility. This makes us particularly proud of the results achieved, and above all it is a sign that Valagro BioSciences is increasingly becoming a point of reference for Indian farmers, whom we intend to offer the best of innovation to combine efficiency, productivity and qualit
