Many members of the Biological Products Industry Alliance (BPIA) attended AmericanHort’s Cultivate 18 Conference in Columbus, OH. As part of the educational program for growers of ornamentals, the BPIA provided a well-attended presentation entitled Biostimulants in Nursery Production. During that presentation a panel of biostimulant experts including representatives from several BPIA member companies explained what biostimulants are and how they can best be used.

The BPIA also produced a presentation entitled Get to Know the Biological Products Industry Alliance as part of the Knowledge Center. This presentation gave an overview of the work of the BPIA and highlighted the many benefits of biological products including biopesticides and biostimulants.

BPIA would like to thank all the members of the BPIA Specialty Markets Committee and the following sponsors who made BPIA’s participation possible: 3 Bar Biologics, BioSafe Systems, Certis USA, Gowan, Greenhouse Grower, Mycorrhizal Applications, MGK, OHP, and Oil-Dri.
