Valagro presents "Kendal Nem in Tour"

The first international Valagro roadshow to address the nutritional requirements of crops even in the presence of nematodes

Valagro, a leader in the production and commercialization of biostimulants and specialty nutrients, presents the first international Kendal Nem roadshow, an unprecedented initiative that will start today in Italy to be held at the headquarters of Valagro.

Kendal Nem roadshow will include 25 events in 4 countries, two continents, totalling more than 7,000 km! The roadshow which will host training events, in-store activities, meetings and field days, open to distributors and farmers, opinion leaders and sectoral technicians, illustrating the potential benefits of Kendal Nem, a unique solution due to its distinctive ability to ensure complete nutrition to crops even in the presence of nematodes.
Developed using exclusive GEA099 technology, Kendal® Nem is a specific biostimulant which, in the soils affected by nematodes, parasites that are harmful for plants, works directly on the plant roots, increasing vegetative growth and root strength resulting in greater productivity in terms of both quality and quantity, even under adverse growth conditions.
“It has been estimated” - explains Farm Product Manager Alfredo Sgrignuoli – “that the global crop loss caused by nematodes amounts to 100 billion dollars a year*. These effects are often underestimated by operators in the sector. Therefore, Valagro wishes to promote greater awareness of this problem through Kendal Nem roadshow and to offer an innovative and effective solution that is suitable for all crops”.
