Trey Arney, a young leader from award-winning Cleveland biotech startup Locus Fermentation Solutions (Locus FS), has been named the inaugural Accidental HR Leader by Crain’s Cleveland. The under 30 Recruiting Specialist turned Production Director impressed the judging panel with his help leading a 200% growth increase at the company, which is dedicated to developing green probiotic-based, chemical alternatives for top global industries.
Last week, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report stressing the importance of land management in the ongoing battle to fight climate change. Through deforestation, general human activities, and agriculture, 70% of the Earth’s land surface has been altered, it states, adding to climate-warming emissions and making it more difficult for forests and other ecosystems to store greenhouse gases.
At this year’s Larta Institute Ag Innovation Showcase, Locus Agricultural Solutions® (Locus AG) will be presenting the company’s industry-first fermentation technology and soil “probiotic” line that is increasing crop yields and reducing greenhouse gas emissions simultaneously in trials across the country.
Locus Agricultural Solutions (Locus AG) reports record levels of carbon sequestered in land treated with a breakthrough line of soil amendments (soil “probiotics”), including Rhizolizer® , which is pulling up to 121% more carbon into the soil than non-treated plots within a year—the largest impact any approach has offered to date. Results from the treatment of almonds, cherries, turf/sod, grapes and citrus across the U.S., as well as impressive preliminary growth data from hardwood reforestation, show a dramatic increase in soil carbon sequestration as well as vastly improved plant productivity. The new data, verified by multiple third parties, comes ahead of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report release this week stressing the importance of addressing agricultural land in the fight against climate change.
