Jerry Stoller will be remembered as an entrepreneur and a revolutionary pioneer in plant physiology, plant nutrition, and plant hormone technology with more than 45 years of production agriculture experience and plant nutrition expertise commissioned for both public and private projects around the world working with virtually all crops, from coffee to corn.
In the early 1990s, Stoller began researching the genetic expression of plants. The revolutionary approach produced from this research takes the guesswork out of maintaining healthy crops through the management of plant hormone levels and micronutrients throughout the plant growth cycle, maintaining optimum hormone balance. Through this process, maximum genetic expression is achieved, resulting in healthier plants better able to withstand the effects of stress under various conditions.
Stoller supervises the conduction of research and studies of various crops under numerous growing conditions. He brings this wealth of research knowledge and experience when combating the problems faced by growers in the United States.
Named Southwest Region’s Entrepreneur of the Year for the Retail-Wholesale Industry in 1998 by the American Horticulture Society.
Has served on the board of directors of The Fertilizer Institute.
Involved in the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society and the Soil Science Society of America.
Master of Science in soil science, Cornell University.
Bachelor of Science in agricultural science, University of Illinois.
