Alltech Scientists Speaking Out

Chuck Zimmerman

Alltech Becky TimmonsThe agricultural media covering the Alltech Symposium this week heard from several key scientists during a lunch session. This provided an opportunity to meet them and ask them questions in an informal setting outside of their on stage presentations.

First up was Becky Timmons, Alltech Global Director of Applications Research and Quality. Becky loves to talk about algae and the opportunities it provides. She also did a fascinating presentation on bees and microbes which I will be doing a separate post on.
