New VofV Podcast Episode – A Roadmap for Improving Soil and Plant Health

Posted on January 25, 2022 08:02 AM by WGCIT

According to Biologicals Queen Pam Marrone, there are three top concerns when it comes to pest management: 1) crop protection tools are continuously being restricted across the globe; 2) there’s buyer pressure to stop using certain chemicals; and 3) some products aren’t as effective as they need in controlling pests. With all these looming issues, how do you protect soil and plant health?

In the latest episode of the Voices of the Valley podcast, Marrone speaks about how to stay ahead of the game as the world moves toward a biologicals-based future. Marrone, who has built numerous thriving bio-ag companies from scratch and discovered countless biological solutions for agricultural pest management, is an acclaimed entomology and business savant. She chats with podcast hosts Dennis Donohue, the director of Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology, and Candace Wilson, CEO of GreenVenus, about ways to invent new pest management solutions based off unmet needs as well as the steps necessary for successfully integrating products into farmers’ program. She also provides an easy-to-understand roadmap of how to effectively use biologicals and microbes to ward off unwanted pests.
