Berries are one of the crops with the highest growth in Spain, in consumption, production and exportation.

In this framework, the International Congress of Berries was held on the 15th and 16th of September in Huelva. Organized by the association Freshuelva, with the collaboration of the Huelva City Council, the Huelva Provincial Council, the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Sustainable Development of the Andalusian Government and Extenda (Andalusia Export and Foreign Investment), this event is now in its sixth edition. AlgaEnergy participated in this event, showcasing its value proposition for crops such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries, among others. The value proposition materializes an innovative and effective solutions: the range of biostimulants based on microalgae, AgriAlgae®.

AlgaEnergy, a biotechnology-based company, showcased its own developed technology and presented the results of numerous field trials carried out on various crops. The trials exhibited how berry crops treated with AgriAlgae® improve their performance significantly in terms of quantity and quality, compared to other biostimulant treatments. These trial results convert into an increase in the profitability and a considerable return on investment for the growers when AgriAlgae® is used to biostimulate the crops.

During the two days of the event, professionals from the entire value chain of the sector were able to see first-hand the efficient and sustainable solutions of AlgaEnergy, while numerous general and specialized press media followed the company and its activities.
