A childhood dream grows into an agricultural innovation

Danielle Rose is CEO of Ceragen, from Kitchener, Ontario. This company is helping farmers sustainably increase the amount of food they can produce from the same amount of growing space. They do this by adding helpful microbes to the roots of the plants. These microbes help the plants grow better under stressful conditions, such as extreme heat.

"Ever since I was a kid, I have always wanted to change the world for the better. When I was in school and learned about the amazing ways that microbes can help plants, I decided to use these microbes to improve how we grow food so that we can feed the growing human population in a way that doesn't hurt the planet."

"We now have several commercial tomato growers that are using our first microbial product, ACCelerate, on their farms. We are in the process of signing up several more growers to use our products."
