Last April, the Young Farmers Agricultural Association of Cordoba (ASAJA Cordoba) hosted a conference on new fertiliser technologies and strategies for olive and corn crops organised by Olmix Group and its distributor Rusama Ganadería. The event drew more than 50 industry professionals and was an excellent opportunity to discuss the main challenges posed to agriculture by climate change and how algae can be used to develop new technologies to enable natural, sustainable, efficient production.
Ignacio Arredondo, Area Manager in South West Europe at Olmix Group, Ignacio Fernández de Mesa, president of ASAJA Cordoba, and Ricardo López Crespo, Vice President of Caja Rural del Sur, gave the opening remarks. They then ceded the stage to the afternoon’s first speaker, Georges Veber, Area Manager for Southern Europe for the Olmix Plant Care range, who discussed Olmix’s new algae-based fertiliser strategies.
‘At Olmix, our goal is to reduce production costs and take the best possible care of the environment; we aim to boost and enhance crops’ natural resistance. To develop new fertiliser strategies, we needed an organic mineral source: seaweed extracts’, he said.
