Research scientist appointed to Neutrog
Australian-owned biological fertiliser
manufacturer, Neutrog Australia, has recently
appointed research scientist,
Dr Uwe Stroeher, to head up its Research
and Development team. Announcing
his permanent appointment in Adelaide,
Neutrog Managing Director Angus Irwin
said Dr Stroeher’s background as a highly
regarded scientist together with his expertise
in molecular biology will allow Neutrog to
continue to be at the forefront of
biological fertiliser development.
“Innovation is central to Neutrog’s
strategic agenda and by employing
a research scientist with the right
combination of knowledge, skills
and curiosity, we will further
strengthen our position as a leader
in the development of biological
fertilisers worldwide,” said Angus.
Dr Stroeher has consulted to the
company for the past 10 years,
initially during the concept stages
of GOGO Juice (a liquid probiotic
for soil). He has been involved in
developing processes and technologies
aimed at maximising the beneficial
microbiology in Neutrog’s fertiliser products.
Recently he has been actively collaborating
with the School of Chemical and Physical
Sciences at Flinders University, in particular
with clean technology, to examine the use
of nanotechnology to enhance antibacterial
compounds. Dr Stroeher has had an interest
in soil microbiology and bioremediation for
more than 10 years.
