DENVER — Inocucor, the agri-tech company that produces biological crop inputs for agriculture, will have greater capacity to serve the Pacific Northwest’s farmers and greenhouse growers with the addition of Rich Rasmussen as area sales manager.
Rasmussen will lead Inocucor's expansion in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. He brings 20 years of experience with this region’s farming community through past sales positions with the Champion Seed Company, Fine Americas, BioSafe Systems, Dunning Irrigation Supply and others. He holds a B.S. degree in agricultural business from Washington State University.
Inocucor uses a patented fermentation process to combine multi-strains of bacteria, yeasts and fungi into powerful soil and plant inputs that boost crop yields, improve the microbial ecology of soils and reduce groundwater pollution caused by chemical fertilizers. These products are safe for people and the environment.
Inocucor's first product Synergro (Garden Solution) is OMRI-listed and registered for use in 22 states. Synergro Free is registered in 17 states.
Synergro is used by fruit and vegetable growers, while Synergro Free helps boost yields on commodity row crops such as soybean, corn and wheat. Other Inocucor products under development include biocontrol formulations that help mitigate disease in tomatoes, potatoes and strawberries.
