More than 1.200 representatives of the scientific and agricultural industry have attended the Microbioma 2 International Congress

This International Congress organized by Agromarketing and Ideagro has established itself as the reference event for the study and dissemination of the importance of microorganisms applied to agriculture with an innovative format capable of gathering scientists, researchers, biotechnology industries, technicians, producers and students in the same forum.

During the days 3 and 4 of November, more than 1,200 professionals from 38 different countries participated in the second edition of the congress in its face-to-face modalities, from the El Batel auditorium in Cartagena, and online through the agromunity.com platform.

The success of the congress makes it the benchmark event on the use of microorganisms in the agriculture worldwide, both due to the high participation and the scientific interest and networking meetings. In fact, the celebration of the third edition of Microbioma for the year 2023 with an innovative format has already been announced.

30 International Experts

With the participation of some thirty international experts, the current moment in which this sector is facing great challenges has been analyzed in order to improve the knowledge, technology and research of soil microorganisms. Only a 2% of soil microrganisms has been identified, despite the fact that scientific studies have shown its benefits to stimulate plant growth, improve soil fertility or deal with harmful pathogens, among other uses.

For Ideagro’s technical director, Pedro Palazón, we should work at vine level. Research and development works should focus not only on the genus level, but also on the strain level, since “microorganisms are defined more by what they do than by what they are, since each strain constitutes a diversity of potential effects and they will depend as much on the environment as on the specific strain”.
