Crop Enhancement Wins People’s Choice Award at the Ag Innovation Showcase

On September 13th, 2016, Crop Enhancement CEO Kevin Chen presented to 400 entrepreneurs and investors at the sold-out Ag Innovation Showcase in St. Louis, MO.

Established in 2009, the event connects entrepreneurs and investors around the newest innovations in global AgTech and sustainable agriculture. Crop Enhancement was one of 20 companies selected to give a presentation among a field of 100 applicants.

Kevin provided an overview of Crop Enhancement’s CropCoat® technology which helps farmers reduce crop loss by protecting crops with a nontoxic, microscopic coating to leaves, stems and fruit. He also shared early success from field trials in various crops including cacao.

Crop Enhancement won the People’s Choice Award in the Ag Inputs and Diagnostics category in an exciting audience vote.

“We’re grateful for the opportunity to meet like-minded companies and investors committed to reducing the impact of agriculture on the environment.”
