At this conference you can examine the size of the market in Asia, hear the latest agronomic research driving new product development and network with potential customers, suppliers and partners in this sector. 

At the conference you will meet attendees from across the supply chain who are involved with slow and controlled release fertilizers, specialties, water solubles, micronutrients, foliar fertilizers and biostimulants.
