The agricultural sector will face a number of challenges in the years to come. Climate change will bring changing or fluctuating growth conditions and introduce new plant diseases and pests. Therefore, research in plant resilience and health, pest and disease control, and sustainable agriculture are vital. New agricultural technologies are needed, and plant biologicals can be part of the solution if new methods and products are developed and tested to ensure efficacy.

At the 2019 Plant Biologicals Network Symposium, different areas where biologicals might help to solve the global challenges that agriculture is currently facing were explored. Dr. Morven McLean, Agriculture & Food Systems Institute Executive Director, delivered the keynote presentation on how biology-based technologies can contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
