NPP Podcast Seaweed Secrets - Episode 2

Dec 02, 2021 | UPL OpenAg®

We believe the secrets to solving some of the biggest development challenges in the world can be found in some of the smallest, naturally occurring technologies. From seaweed to starch, and biostimulants to bacteria, it’s time to meet this episode’s micro – GOACTIV – the microtechnology unlocking the secrets of seaweed to promote the natural stimulation of crops around the world.

In this second episode of the NPP – Natural Plant Protection – Podcast, host Dan Danchez is joined by Arnaud Labarre, Global Biostimulant Product Manager for UPL, based at the heart of the NPP innovation center in Saint Malo, France, where he has spent 20 years exploring the secret power of seaweed. Seaweed may sometimes be an inconvenience at the beach, but with 14.7 million tonnes produced every year, today we explore the history of seaweed in agriculture and the work that Arnaud and NPP have been doing to incorporate seaweed into modern agricultural practices as was done decades ago?
