Verdesian Los Alamos Media Day

verdesian-groupVerdesian Life Sciences is a company focused on science and technology. They are also focused on education – education of journalists, employees, sales representatives and ultimately growers. Verdesian is, as founder and CEO JJ Grow explains, a plant health nutrition company filling in the micronutrient and macronutrient gaps in agriculture. Or, in simpler terms, “Things that fix nitrogen”.

The company hosted about half a dozen journalists at Los Alamos National Laboratory on October 1, 2014. The media heard from several researchers working on technologies applicable to agriculture, learned about the lab’s mission, met with researchers from the Bioscience Center and learned about the successful relationship between the lab and Verdesian. It is this partnership that has brought some great nitrogen technologies to farmers around the world including Take-Off.
