Koch is known for building long-lasting relationships with their customers by delivering innovative solutions that create value. Through this collaboration, FBSciences and Koch will draw on their shared commitment to optimizing performance and ROI while minimizing environmental impact to deliver transformative products.
“We are thrilled to announce this relationship with Koch and look forward to combining our scientific know-how and proven technologies with Koch’s expertise in boosting crop productivity and yield while reducing environmental impact,” said Courtenay Wolfe, chair and CEO of FBSciences. “Through this collaboration, growers will have access to the next generation of agricultural products.”
