Groupe Roullier intervened at the IPNC, a global conference on Plant Nutrition

At the end of August 2017, the International Plant Nutrition Colloquium (IPNC) was held in Copenhagen. Every four years, this event brings together scientists from around the world who have contributed to the field of Plant Nutrition.

400 eminent doctors and university professors (from Mexico, Nairobi, Beijing, Dundee, etc.) come to present their work bringing advances in agronomic research.

Within this framework, Dr Seyed Abdollah Hosseini, potassium project manager at Centre Mondial de l'Innovation Roullier, took part to present the results on the interaction between silicon and potassium in barley under water stress.

Potassium is a key element in the water stress management of plants, an important topic on which the Centre Mondial de l'Innovation Roullier is working closely with one of the top ten most renowned professors worldwide in the Plant Nutrition field : Prof Dr Nicolaus Von Wirén. He is professor and Head of Department of Physiology & Cell Biology at The Leibniz-Institute for Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research in Germany. This prominent Doctor is a jury member of the Innovation Awards Roullier, whose prizes will be awarded next june.

This prestigious invitation confirms the recognition of Centre Mondial de l'Innovation Roullier’s Research and Development in this very closed world of Plant Nutrition research.

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.
