Symborg biotechnology for seeds to be presented at the Euroseeds Congress in Stockholm

11 octobre 2019

The European Seed Association holds its annual congress from 13-15 October

Its products, based on natural microorganisms, improve effectiveness of seeds

The agricultural biotechnology company Symborg will actively participate in the Euroseeds Congress of the European Seed Association (ESA) on October 13 to 15 in Stockholm.  Symborg will be one of the sponsors of this event with Bayer, Dow-Du-Pont and Petkus.

The Euroseeds Congress brings together the most important seed and plant breeding companies in Europe and the world as well as companies that provide agricultural and technological solutions for this sector. The last edition of the Euroseeds Congress, held in Madrid, exceeded one thousand participants from 47 countries, all of them sector professionals, commercial delegates, scientists, producers, etc.

During the meeting, decisive issues will be addressed, such as European policies on seeds, ecological agriculture, research strategies, European protein production plan, etc. The conference will be divided into several panels focused on different types of key crops: oil and fiber crops, forage and grasses, corn and sorghum, cereals and legumes, vegetables and ornamental crops and potatoes.

Thanks to its cutting-edge biotechnology research work, Symborg has developed solutions based on exclusive patents held by the company that allow farmers to increase the profitability of their crops without environmental impact.Continuous advances in science and technology development have made seeds into high technology products with great added value, so the seed industry is looking for tools for improving plants and enabling them to develop new varieties efficiently while protecting the environment. Symborg, a member of the International Seed Federation since 2017, will present their new sustainable bio-agricultural developments based on natural organisms to the companies present at the Euroseeds Congress.

Seed treatment experience

Symborg products, such as the biological inoculant Resid HC, are based on exclusive microorganisms of proven seed treatment efficacy. They provide seeds of grain cereals such as corn, soybean and sunflower (and legumes in general) with a coating of natural microorganisms that remain inactive for a long time. After germination, these microorganisms are incorporated into the plants and become future beneficial agents for their development.

Resid HC is based on the activity of Glomus iranicum var tenuihypharum, an arbuscular mycorrhizal-forming fungus that, in symbiosis with crop roots, improves their ability to absorb and transport nutrients to the plant. With more abundant and balanced nutrition, plants reach a more controlled hormonal balance and respond better to any type of abiotic stress. Better-fed crops increase their physiological and photosynthetic activity while also improving their productive capacity.

This is a natural biological active ingredient that does not leave undesirable residues in plants or alter their genetic characteristics. The method is 100% compatible with the environment.

Production increases

Trials performed on plants grown from seed treated with Resid HC show increases in production of 7% in corn. In wheat, the results show increases in production ranging from 9.7% to 16% depending on the variety. In barley, the number of tons collected per hectare increase from 8.5% to 15% depending on the varieties and in soybeans the average increases were 8.5%.
