Dr. Kaplan talked to the 2nd year Bio students at UC Davis BioLaunch Career Lab on Feb 10, 2023, about her career path, Pheronym, and our technology harnessing pheromones to create climate-resilient pest control solutions for farmers.
We thank Professor Carrie Ozeran for this opportunity to connect with UC Davis undergraduate students.
Pheronym is also looking for interns. If you are interested, find us in UC Davis Handshake.
Dr. Fatma Kaplan, Pheronym’s CEO and founder, was a guest on the Joe Gardener podcast. They talked about how lab-produced pheromones can be used to repel pest nematodes and stimulate beneficial nematodes for insect control. To learn more about nematodes and pheromones, follow the link to listen to the podcast.
Join Dr.Kaplan on November 9, 2022 at 12:10 PM- 2:00 PM PST for “Nematode pheromone extracts act as boosters for entomopathogenic nematodes’ efficacy to control agricultural pests in the soil” as part of the WSU Molecular Plant Sciences Seminar Series. She will discuss beneficial nematodes, pheromone extracts, and their impact on controlling agricultural pests!
The seminar will be held on zoom through the Molecular Plant Sciences Graduate Program at WSU.
Join the discussion on Sept 14th, 2022 at 2 PM (EST) with Dr. Fatma Kaplan, CEO of Pheronym, Dr. David Shapiro,Research Leader at USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) SE Fruit and Tree Nut Research Unit in Byron, GA, and Dr. Jacob Parnell, Sr. Agronomist at Biome Makers, as they discuss how entomopathogenic nematodes and their pheromones can provide unforeseen benefits to soil health and cropping systems.
Learn more about:
Assessing the efficacy of beneficial nematodes with and without the pheromones.
Demonstrating product performance.
Measuring the effects of biological ag inputs on the soil microbiome of peach orchards.
Soil insight into functionality, hormone production, and stress adaptation.

This symposium highlights innovative young companies in crop yield enhancement, describing their technical offerings and business models. There will also be discussions on the opportunities and pitfalls of forming a new company in agricultural yield and how these new companies will advance into sustainable agricultural practices and regulatory frameworks.
