After its start in 2014, AgroTech USA has been working to find efficiencies for farmers. Co-founder James Paterson says the company is focused on phosphorus deficiency.

Research has shown an 8.5 bushel increase per acre on corn. “Even on the low end of $4 corn, you’re still looking at over $30 an acre return on a small initial investment.” Hear the full interview with James Paterson here.
