With more than 40 years of global experience applying novel technology to microbial and conventional agriculture, Locus Agricultural Solutions’ (Locus AG) CEO Dr. Paul Zorner has been invited by Forbes to discuss the Future of Microbes at its 2019 AgTech Summit this Thursday.
Tapped for his deep and broad expertise in healthy soils, Locus Agricultural Solutions (Locus AG) CEO Dr. Paul Zorner is presenting on the use of agricultural “probiotics” to improve crop productivity and soil carbon sequestration at this year’s International Citrus and Beverage Conference.
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.
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.
