Micronutrients
matter!

International scientific-practical online conference on secondary elements and micronutrients nutrition


We are Ukraine!

Hard times have come and lie ahead.

But even the darkest night is followed by a sunrise. We must wait to see it!

We will withstand! 

 

We will win! 

 

We will rebuild Ukraine!

About event

Travelite team is continuing to work and support the Ukrainian army, Ukrainian agricultural producers, and the Ukrainians.

Therefore, we start the new initiative which is aimed to support Ukrainian farmers, rural areas, and families whose villages and houses were destroyed. They have been left without opportunity to work, keep the production process at the usual level, hence having no chance to live a normal life and feed their families, as well as Ukrainians.

As a part of this initiative, we are organizing the conference on the importance of micronutrients in agricultural production. Micronutrients are necessary, as plants require a proper balance of all the essential nutrients for normal growth and optimum yield. Our speakers are going to discuss the role of micronutrients, highlighting each of them in details and systemizing general as well as scientific information in order to remove the potential barriers to maximum possible production.

Due to the situation in Ukraine, farmers faced the hardships with inputs, so the speakers will advise how to economize on the inputs and use them with maximum return on investment.

Though in small amounts, micronutrients matter, and their role cannot be underestimated.
