SOWING IDEAS,

REAPING SUCCESS

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.
