Learn the science behind microbial seed treatments and how they can benefit crop production and farm profitability. Experts will discuss the genetic makeup of microbes and the science behind how they are sourced, isolated and selected for developing strains that will have a positive effect in the field against specific abiotic and biotic stresses.

This session will also discuss how greenhouse and field-based trials determine how microbes successfully work to boost crop resilience in these temporal stress conditions, nutrient deficiencies, and disease management — specifically with winter wheat and cotton, soybean and corn — and you will hear grower testimony, observation, and yield comparisons. Agronomists will further recommend how to formulate actionable practices for positive outcomes, will share how to leverage these learnings to reduce risk, improve crop yield and ensure grower and retailer profitability.
