Valagro’s biostimulant TALETE scoops award: Valagro, a leading company in the development, production and marketing of biostimulants and specialty nutrients for crops, has been recognized at the 2021 Crop Science Awards for the innovative biostimulant TALETE, which has been awarded Best New Biological Product (Biostimulant).
In its history, which is more than 10 years long, this prestigious annual event (previously known as Agrow Awards) has honoured the most successful scientific, technological, and leadership initiatives in the field of innovative crop protection inputs and digital agriculture industries from all over the world.
TALETE, developed by means of our proprietary GeaPower® technology, helps crops enhance Crop Water Productivity, the economical or biophysical gain for each unit of water used in crop production. Composed of biomolecules of plant origin, TALETE acts directly on plant physiology, promoting sustainable production in both conditions of adequate water availability and of permanent or temporary water scarcity.
Giuseppe Natale, CEO of Valagro:
“We learn with great pleasure about the prestigious Crop Science Award received by TALETE, as it testifies to and celebrates Valagro’s work in creating a sustainable future for people and nature – efforts that we now share with Syngenta as one team. TALETE is our answer to the needs of the farmers who struggle with water scarcity and of those who keep an eye on optimal management of agricultural inputs: we created it not only by putting innovation at the service of the environment, but also with a view on social and economic needs of the farmers. We are now happy and proud to see that the results of our mindset have been recognized as an excellence in the biologicals sector and we believe this achievement reinforces our will to pursue this ambitious goal.”
Corey Huck, Head Global Biologicals, Syngenta:
“Syngenta and Valagro invest into biological research to meet the needs of farmers, connecting science with nature. We are delighted that our efforts have been recognized by the industry. The Crop Science Award reinforces TALETE’s tangible contribution to growers who experience difficulty in accessing water or in managing it optimally, thus contributing to a sustainable future for people and nature. Congratulations to the Valagro team for this well-deserved honor.”
