As of December 1, 2012, ABM is excited to announce that we have appointed Dr. Gary Harman as our Chief Science Officer. His contributions to the agricultural community have been remarkable and we look forward to unraveling the endless possibilities of improving and discovering new technologies available to the grower.

Dr. Harman has spent the past 42 years as a Professor at Cornell University dedicating his life’s work to the development of microbial technologies to enhance plant growth and productivity; Including biological control of plant diseases, enhanced resistance to stress, improved nitrogen use efficiency and increased yields, and development of products using agricultural waste products for environmental remediation. He has authored two books including Trichoderma and Gliocladium, co-authored by Christian Kubick of the Technical University in Vienna, Austria, nearly 150 scientific papers, and about 20 patents or patent applications.

In working with Professor Gary Harman of Cornell University, ABM has developed the technology to isolate and identify specific strains of beneficial Trichoderma.  In that work, many thousands of strains were produced and screened over a period of more than 30 years.  ABM’s strains are the very best from this large effort, headed by the foremost leader in Trichoderma research: Dr. Gary Harman.
