Summary of the Day: Upon arrival to Ingleby, we were joined by 2 scientist with Ag-Biotech. They walked us through what Ag-Biotech does and how it helps it’s farmers and growers. In Genomics Services, developing crop breeds can be a tricky business. There are so many variables, so many potential pitfalls, and so little time. Count on Ag-Biotech to empower you and give you the peace of mind you need to get your products to market, quickly and confidently. Our state-of-the-art genomic testing services—starting with our signature Marker Assisted Selection (MAS)—help you to grow your new breeds, and your business. We bring you more than 20 years of experience. We’re trusted by breeders around the world. We deliver the speed and transparency you deserve. And we’re surprisingly affordable, given our high-touch service. They are also experts in Seed Health Testing. You can’t buy or sell seeds unless they’re clean. But you also know that pathogen testing can get time-consuming and costly, especially during peak seasons—and especially when your options are limited. Now you have a new choice: Seed Health Testing Services from Ag-Biotech, the premiere independent crop genomics lab with more than 20 years of trusted expertise. Our seed health laboratory is exclusively dedicated to getting you the results you need, the way you want them, at a price that meets your budget. Whether you’re a seed producer looking to market your product, a buyer seeking to test a potential purchase, or even another lab needing surge support and third-party verification, you can have it all from Ag-Biotech. After, learning about Ag-Biotech and how it relates also to IPM we went out to the field and cleaned out an owl boxes and held baby owls. Ingleby uses owls as natural rodent control in their field. We had a great day!
