“Mr. Miller’s industry and technical experience along with his company building background provides the necessary skills and perspective to assist us in maximizing the impact of our BAM-FX technology to the world’s agricultural markets. The unique ability of BAM-FX to not only act as a delivery mechanism for itself, but to also potentially enhance the efficiency of other agricultural products when combined with BAM-FX, can position our platform technology as a bridge technology for major agricultural companies looking to make their own products perform more efficiently,” stated Harvey Kaye, ZGSI’s Chairman of the Board.
“Upon my review of BAM Agricultural Solutions’ technology, I was impressed with the consistency of crop performance enhancement over multiple-year trials and also the variety of crops on which the product has been tested. The agricultural industry is looking for innovative ways to enhance sustainable productivity while increasing return on investment. Utilizing the science of the BAM-FX technology platform may represent an effective and efficient approach toward accomplishing that goal,” stated Miller, ZGSI’s new Senior Strategic Agricultural Advisor.
