Harpe Bioherbicide Solutions, Inc. Tuesday announced the appointment of Dr. Robb Fraley to its board of directors. Harpe is a pre-commercial stage agricultural technology company focused on providing natural and sustainable herbicide solutions. Fraley, who, for nearly 40 years, served as Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Monsanto Company, will help guide Harpe Bioherbicide Solutions as it further develops and strengthens its intellectual property portfolio. In addition to joining the board, Fraley has personally invested in the company. Fraley is widely recognized as a key contributor to the worldwide science and agriculture communities – most notably, for developing the first genetically modified crops as a solution for farmers battling pests and weeds that threatened yields and food production. Through wide spectrum control of broadleaf and grass seeds or weeds, the platform of Harpe products will deliver new opportunities for organic agriculture through a series of all-natural herbicide formulations for pre, post and desiccation use patterns.
