PHOENIX, AZ (September 2017) – Global Organics is pleased to announce its plans to enhance its isolate production and capacity to prepare for the agricultural markets’ increased demand for biological pathogen suppression.
Isolate is the term used to reference unique beneﬁcial microorganisms designed to suppress soil-borne plant pathogens and increase the decomposition of organic and synthetic materials.
This process started with Vicki Bess, who originally joined forces with our founder, Roger Blotsky, in the late 1980’s and was a pivotal ﬁgure in developing the isolate technology used by our leading agricultural division, BioFlora (www.bioﬂora.com). Vicki started the process of isolating pure cultures of microorganisms and categorized them by their beneﬁcial properties for integration into BioFlora’s organic and agricultural inputs.
During her tenure at GOG, Vicki acted as a mentor to many of our Integrated Life Science team members (www.ilsrc.com), our division to furthering research, development and innovation. Vicki is at it again with a mission to increase isolate production capacity and create a seamless transition for an enhanced production schedule. Vicki will also continue to advise the research and development division on new methods to optimize plant productivity using isolate technology within BioFlora products.
“Microbial diversity is a key component of agricultural sustainability, and is one of the only ways to improve soil health and increase the bottom line for growers,” stated Vicki Bess. “The economics all make sense from a microbial to a macro level, so I am pleased work on this project and make a positive impact on this very real agricultural trend.”
This sentiment was furthered by GOG’s Managing Partner and CEO, Luke Blotsky, “We are very excited to have Vicki focus her eﬀorts on furthering our isolate technology. With her extensive background and intimate knowledge of both isolate technology and our products, I am conﬁdent in her ability to revitalize our isolate production and research and take it to the next level.”
