Best Poster Award for the CMI Roullier at the Biostimulants World Congress in Miami
From 27th to 30th November 2017, the “3rd Biostimulants World Congress” was held in Miami, with a focus on “The Use of Biostimulants in Agriculture”.
Around 1,000 participants from around the world attended the congress to present their research in the field of biostimulation and plant nutrition.
Research carried out by the CMI Roullier and the Unité Mixte de Recherche (Mixed Research Unit) - INRA Université de Caen Normandy 950 EVA, was presented at this congress in the form of a poster by C. Haddad, a PhD student at the UMR EVA under the supervision of Dr P. Laine and Dr P. Etienne (UMR EVA), and Dr M. Arkoun (Project Manager at the CMI-Roullier).
The scientific precision and excellence of the work that was presented led the scientific committee to award the poster (1/143) the Best Poster Award. This international recognition confirms the innovative quality of the R&D work carried out by our Groupe in the plant nutrition field.
The CMI and TAI in partnership with the French Atlas of Soil Bacteria
Soil represents a vital area of research for the agriculture of tomorrow. The billions of bacteria that can be found in one single gram of soil are an important source of growth for plants. It is for this reason that this issue has a specific R&D department within the CMI, where we have taken in two postdoctoral researchers from Professor Lionel Ranjard’s team from the INRA Agroecology Mixed Research Unit.
