Executive Administrative Assistant


Create the future of agriculture!

Farmers can lose most of their crops without pest control. At the same time, there are concerns about traditional chemical controls' toxicity and environmental impact. These concerns have led to regulation and outright bans on specific pesticides around the globe. Farmers and society demand climate—and eco-friendly alternatives to control pests.

Our company, Pheronym, turned to nature to win the battle against pests. We chose pheromones, communication signals, to protect our crops. Pheronym uses nematode pheromones to control agricultural pests, providing climate-friendly alternatives to soil fumigants and improving soil health. In other words, Pheronym enables farmers to control pests in the soil using climate- and eco-friendly solutions.
