Evonik joins EBIC

The board of the European Biostimulants Industry Council (EBIC) recently approved the membership of Evonik, raising EBIC’s membership to 62.

The European Biostimulant Industry Council (EBIC) promotes the contribution of plant biostimulants to make agriculture more sustainable and resilient and in doing so promotes the growth and development of the European Biostimulant Industry. The European Biostimulants Industry Council (EBIC) was formed in June 2011 to foster the role of the biostimulants sector in helping agriculture to produce more with less. To do this, EBIC advocates an operating environment that creates a truly European market for biostimulants and recognises their contribution to sustainable agricultural production, green innovation, economic growth and other European Union (EU) policy objectives.

Recently Evonik launched specific biocompatible BREAK-THRU®️ products for microbial agro solutions including biostimulants, which prolong shelf life combined with performance improvements. Evonik´s BREAK-GARD®️ IR 100 is a soil adjuvant which is also a biostimulant: the product increases the penetration and wettability of soil and thereby the water and nutrient availability in the rhizosphere; especially under stress conditions like salty soil or salty irrigation water.
