BIO Leads Letter on Need for Biostimulants Regulatory Clarity in Farm Bill

May 9, 2018

On behalf of the U.S. Biostimulant Coalition (USBC), the Biological Products Industry Alliance (BPIA), the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA), the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), and the Humic Products Trade Association, we are pleased language was adopted in the House Farm Bill that will provide regulatory clarity for the biostimulant industry. We hope that the Senate Agriculture Committee will include this same language. This much-needed regulatory clarity will help growers, the biostimulant industry, agricultural retailers, state regulatory officials, and other stakeholders.
