Plant Nutrition Technologies (PNT), one of 31 agtech startups in the WG Center for Innovation & Technology, will be hosting a Tech Talk on March 28.  They will be speaking about their unique bio-mineral fertilizers that create healthier and stronger plants that bear more robust fruits and vegetables.

Join us either online or in person at the Center in Salinas to learn more about this innovative product.

During the Tech Talk, PNT President & CEO Dennis Amoroso will discuss their bio-conversion process where Rock Powder—a blend of the raw materials left from the mining eras—is combined with natural elements, such as bio-mass, manure, wood ash and various types of bacteria, to create a soil bio-mineralizing and regenerative fertilizer. The microbes from this fertilizer inhabit the soil, reach directly into the root system and provide better nutrition than synthetic fertilizers.

 For more information about PNT, join us for the Tech Talk and read the “From Mine Waste to Soil Gold: Firm Delivers High-Yielding Fertilizer” story featured in the WG&S Magazine.
