Biostimulants + Biocontrol

The Latin American bioinputs industry
in one place.

September 28th and 29th 2022, The Westin Lima Hotel, Perú.

Face-to-face event


Based on the great success of our Latin American Congresses about Biostimulants and Biocontrol In 2021, where we gathered more than 1.600 delegates from all over the world, we are pleased to announce this in-person event in Perú where we will meet the main actors of the bioinputs industry.

The congress will have parallel rooms where we will discuss the most relevant technical aspects of bioinputs.

All the lectures will be broadcasted via streaming to the delegates that can’t attend to the in-person event in Perú.
