Awards and presentation foster agricultural advancement at the PGRSA 2012 Conference in Denver.
Dr. Albert Liptay, Director of Research and Development at Stoller Enterprises, will be making a presentation of information and awards at the 39th Annual Conference of the Plant Growth Regulation Society of America held July 22-26 in Denver CO.
The PGRSA is a networking and research conference dedicated to discussing the recent research on plant growth regulation. One of the featured speakers for the event, Liptay will present Weslaco Texas field experiment results on the impact and management of abiotic stress on soybean plants. Liptay effectively doubled yields by addressing the abiotic stress factors at various plant growth phases.
Jerry Stoller CEO and founder of Stoller Enterprises, Inc. has been a contributor and participant of the conference for many years. In 2012 his continued commitment to advancing agriculture took the form of sponsoring two conference research awards. Stoller will award a $5000 grant to a post-doctorate student who submits a research paper that most clearly demonstrates the advancement of plant growth hormone technology in crop production. Stoller will award a second $5000 grant to the author of the research paper that best outlines the most interesting “new concept” for the use and or hormonal treatment of plants.
“We’ve only tapped the surface of crop yield potential,” explains Stoller. “It is looking beyond traditional agricultural thinking that will provide answers to yield challenges. Cutting edge research, like Dr. Liptay’s presentation and innovative thinking like that fostered by Stoller Enterprises PGRSA awards perfectly aligns with our mission and focus as a company.”.
