London, September 6th, 2018 – Challenge Advisory are delighted to announce that Peter Blezard, Chief Executive and Founder, Azotic Technologies- will be speaking at AG4.0 in San Francisco from 14-15 November.

Mr. Blezard will be part of the ‘Biotechnology’ panel, where discussions will mainly focus on the relation of societal understandings and perspectives on the bio-tech industry in farming, and the question on where resources would be best allocated in relation to the safeguarding of US agriculture and its progression. Also, the discussion will be addressing the Nitrogen’s issue and assessing the advanced technologies for understanding and engineering soil and crop microbiomes, to improve crop yield and food security.

At Azotic, Peter is responsible for commercial issues, business development and sales. His prime objectives are to successfully commercialise N-Fix and achieve Azotic’s corporate milestones. Peter has extensive experience in pioneering new products into new markets and in working with major companies on a global basis at board level.

He is a 20-year member of the IoD.

About her participation at AG4.0 Mr. Blezard states: “Farmers will gain significantly financially through the increased crop yields offered by Azotic Technologies’ world class nitrogen-fixing bacteria N-Fix®, which provides nitrogen to the plant directly from the air.  Nitrogen run-off is also a major pollutant and has a negative impact human health causing disease including blue baby syndrome.  Consumers will soon force food labelling that details synthetic nitrogen content.  Food trials prove that crops produced using N-Fix® match or better those produced using traditional high-levels of fertiliser.”

AG 4.0 will be a workshop aimed at improving the understanding of modern agriculture practices and creating interoperable solutions. Join the debate with over 40 speakers, and network with key agriculture experts, academics, stakeholders, and everyone else involved in the agriculture supply chain.

About Azotic Technologies

Azotic Technologies Ltd was established to develop and commercialise a natural nitrogen technology that provides a sustainable solution to fertiliser overuse.

Azotic Technologies has identified a new platform nitrogen technology; the Company will commercialise technologies based on this platform through appropriate partnerships in R&D and routes to market.

Azotic’s N-Fix® technology is based on a food grade bacteria Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus (Gd) which is derived from sugarcane. N-Fix can be applied as an inoculant or as a seed dressing formulation. By inoculating plant seeds with this beneficial bacteria, it creates a symbiotic relationship for mutual benefit.
