Ag Biotech Professional Forum

Join friends and colleagues from our region and share what’s happening in North Carolina’s ag tech industry. The Ag Biotech Professional Forum is a series held throughout the year providing the opportunity to learn about N.C.’s diverse agricultural resources, while also offering a setting for networking and engagement outside of our normal work spaces. See the agenda below for the upcoming Forum topic and details.

Agenda

Harnessing Plant Peptides and Metabolites as a Business Strategy

April's Forum will discuss natural crop protectants and how peptides and metabolites can be harnessed as a business strategy to protect plants against stress. Dr. Kopcinski of Plant Health Care will focus on plant signaling molecules and how they can enhance the performance of crop protection products. Dr. Kruse of PlantResponse Biotech will share information on how agronomic trials are the bridge between mode-of-action and a commercial product.
