WASHINGTON, D.C. – Effective January 4, 2021, the U.S. Biostimulant Coalition is joining forces with The Fertilizer Institute (TFI).  The Biostimulant Coalition and TFI have reached a formal agreement to form a “Biostimulant Council” and work together to advance policy and regulatory frameworks that increase biostimulant market access and encourage research and innovation. 

The Biostimulant Coalition was founded as a non-profit group of interested parties cooperating to proactively address regulatory and legislative issues involving biological or naturally derived additives, including but not limited to bacterial or microbial inoculants, biochemical materials, amino acids, humic acids, fulvic acid, seaweed extract and other similar materials. The group was formed in 2011. The Biostimulant Coalition will no longer exist in its current form and will instead become the Biostimulant Council, housed within TFI.

We are excited for the many opportunities this new partnership will create. We believe it will advance the interests of the U.S. biostimulant industry and help achieve our overarching goal which is to create a clear, consistent, and predictable process to market for plant biostimulant products. “The partnership with TFI will provide the Biostimulant Coalition with all the tools we need to continue serving the membership we have, as well as growing those offerings,” said Biostimulant Coalition Executive Director, David Beaudreau, Jr. “TFI brings to the table a high functioning team of professionals and a full suite of legal, policy, regulatory, and communications resources.”
