PlantResponse™ has established its North American headquarters in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park, a key location for the North American market.

The Research Triangle is well known as a global hub for agricultural innovation technology. This location will help PlantResponse to focus on areas of interest to North American growers in our research and field work. We are already carrying out product field trials in four U.S. states, although not yet in North Carolina. Most of our work focuses on traditional row crops such as corn, soybeans and cotton.

Tom Snipes, chief executive officer of PlantResponse, said:

Opening an office here in the Research Triangle is well aligned with our current growth strategy. We’ll be working on adapting our proprietary solutions for management of plant disease, stress and drought conditions for this market.

PlantResponse’s North American headquarters will house our commercial leadership, supply chain, product management and sales teams.

We would like to give special thanks to the NCBiotech staff, who helped us identify the best infrastructure in the area and facilitated introductions to set up this exciting project.
