Creating a sustainable future for people and nature: with Talete, Valagro contributes a practical example for developing the agriculture of the future to the 4th Biostimulants World Congress

Barcelona (Spain), the 18th of November 2019 – Valagro, a leading company in the production and marketing of biostimulants and specialty nutrients for crops, will participate as Gold sponsor at the 4th World Congress on the use of Biostimulants in Agriculture.  

The Congress, which will be hosted in Barcelona from today until the 21st of November, hosts over 1,500 delegates from all over the world, confirming itself as the technical and scientific event of reference for the sector, capable of increasing the knowledge of the scientific community and of the productive world regarding biostimulants and their benefits.

It is in this global context that Valagro presents Talete, the new biostimulant originating from the exclusive GeaPower technology platform to increase Crop Water Productivity, i.e. to guarantee the increase in production or economic yield for each unit of water used in crop production.

Talete's aim is to promote sustainable production in conditions of adequate water availability and in conditions of permanent or temporary shortages.

Giuseppe Natale, the CEO of Valagro:

"Talete concretely represents Valagro's mission to create a sustainable future for people and nature; thanks to Talete, Valagro is able to provide a viable solution to farmers around the world to get the most out of their crops by optimising the use of an increasingly precious resource, water. To meet the growing needs of the world population we must radically change the way in which water is used, managed and shared, especially in agriculture, which alone is responsible for 70% of global freshwater consumption. In line with our mission, and in response to the appeal of international organisations such as FAO on creating innovative technical means for sustainable food production, we have put the best of our research and innovation, the result of the GeaPower technology platform, at the service of agriculture, with the aim of making it increasingly productive and at the same time increasingly efficient".

Alfredo Sgrignuoli, Product Manager of Valagro:

"Every single drop of water is invaluable for agricultural production. Talete is based on this premise and it is the solution that Valagro has created to provide a sort of insurance or safety net to farmers experiencing temporary or permanent water shortages. Conversely, in conditions of adequate water availability, Talete represents an effective solution which ensures or improves production via the optimisation of water provision by various irrigation techniques. Profit maximisation, cost reduction, flexibility for the farmer, increased irrigation efficiency, support in the case of "Regulated Deficit Irrigation": these are the numerous benefits that Talete offers to help farmers all over the world".

Alongside this substantial innovation, featured in a dedicated Valagro stand in the exhibition area, the Congress will also see the participation of researchers from the Global Research division among the group of international speakers and experts. In particular, Giovanni Povero will give a speech entitled Development of new biostimulant formulations for row crops by means of transcriptomics and high efficiency plant phenotyping in the session dedicated to the sources and screening tools sustaining new developments in the advancement of biostimulants.
