Our CEO, Dr. Kaplan, is presenting Pheronym’s technology at the “New Crop Yield Technology Companies Improving Sustainability” Symposium at the American Chemical Society-Agro Division 2022 Fall National Meeting in Chicago, IL, on August 23.
McCormick Place, 2301 S King Dr, Chicago, IL 60616
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.
Dr. Kaplan is giving a plenary lecture as an ISCE Applied Chemical Ecology Award winner at this year’s ISCE-APACE Joint Meeting 2022 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on August 9th.
To know more about Pheronym’s technology, please join us either in person in Kuala Lumpur or virtually on August 9th!

Dr. Kaplan, CEO of Pheronym, is honored to be a speaker at the Nematode Division Symposium at the 2022 International Congress on Invertebrate Pathology and Microbial Control, Nelson Mandela Bay, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
She talked about “Dynamics of entomopathogenic nematode foraging and infectivity in microgravity.”
The three-year project is titled “Chemical cues from beneficial nematodes enhance plant resistance and strengthen biological control.” It was funded by U.S. Department of AgricultureNational Institute of Food and Agriculture through the Pests and Beneficial Species in Agricultural Production Systems Program.
The $680,000 grant will expand the work Helms began as a postdoctoral fellowship study in 2017. Helms is collaborating with David Shapiro-Ilan, Ph.D., at the USDA-ARS Southeastern Fruit and Tree Nut Research Station in Byron, Georgia, and Fatma Kaplan, Ph.D., at Pheronym Inc. in Woodland, California. Shapiro-Ilan and Kaplan have extensive experience and expertise focusing on nematodes and nematode pheromones, respectively.
Aside from their knowledge about EPNs, Helms said Shapiro-Ilan and Kaplan also provide expertise regarding potential commercial applications of the research to make EPNs a viable option for various users.
Thank you Monte Bottens for hosting us on the AgEmerge Podcast and the opportunity to talk about the science behind our nematode pheromone technology and cost-effective environmentally friendly pest control for farmers.
The AgEmerge Podcast features new ideas, grower insights, research, and emerging technology.
