Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. has recently announced the appointment of Pedro Lichtinger and David Delaney to its board of directors. The company is at the forefront of sustainability, using its innovative plant priming technology to improve crop yields for farmers worldwide. The new additions to the board bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to help Zero Gravity grow and reach new heights.
Pedro Lichtinger brings over 30 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and animal health fields to the table. As the current Chairman and CEO of Starton Therapeutics, he is well-equipped to help guide Zero Gravity to success. On the other hand, David Delaney has a long history in the agricultural sector, with over 40 years of experience as an executive. He most recently led teams at FMC and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Zero Gravity.
“The parallels between human, animal, and plant health are clear. I’m keen to bring my expertise to a field where fresh innovation is needed to face mounting challenges and ensure the security of our food supply,” said Mr. Lichtinger. “Farmers are losing more crops due to drought, disease, and extreme weather. Improving plant health will go a long way toward feeding two billion more people in the next 30 years.”
“I’m proud to bring my know-how to Zero Gravity, who are pioneering a new way forward in plant health,” commented Mr. Delaney. “With arable land dwindling, sustainably increasing yields is the only way to feed our burgeoning population. By enabling plants’ natural defenses with priming technology, we can improve harvests while minimizing harmful inputs that hurt the soil or other organisms.”
