What about your organization or company’s work are you most proud of?
We have an American innovation made in the United States that delivers both sustainability for our partners and profitability for our farmers.
Please highlight key trends affecting your industry.
At a time when fertilizer use is coming under increasing scrutiny, we offer a viable alternative that repurposes and recycles waste and reduces the environmental impact of agriculture - something that is becoming more and more important to companies across the entire supply chain.
Talk about the key opportunities & challenges facing your business over the next 5 years.
We have an opportunity to increase the nutritional value of fertilizer using microbial technology that will improve soil health and yield with no need for added synthetics. That will mean less fertilizer being transported, stored and applied on the farm, with significant environmental benefits as a result. The challenge, as now, will be to drive adoption at scale of the regenerative/climate-smart agricultural practices that deliver the desired environmental outcomes while adding financial value to the grower.
