Ostara has announced that Dr. Aaron Waltz has been named Chief Technology Officer of the company. Waltz brings over 20 years of experience in the agriculture industry and deep agronomic expertise. Waltz began his career at DuPont Pioneer in corn genetics and transgenic traits and has since worked in technology development roles in the adjuvants, biologicals and fertilizer industries.
“Aaron’s skills are highly complementary to the existing executive team and will enable Ostara to realise our vision of global expansion as we increase production of our portfolio of Crystal Green phosphate fertilizers,” said Kerry Cebul, Chief Executive Officer of Ostara. “Aaron’s agronomic expertise, diverse science background, and leadership will be critical as we rapidly expand our platform of technologies and significantly increase production to meet grower needs.”
Waltz’s involvement in agriculture began on his family’s farms in Nebraska. He earned a Ph.D. from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, and then built a career in crop production and product development. Waltz is driven by his passion for connecting hard-working growers with sustainable technology solutions to help feed the world.
“Ostara has developed a unique foundation of innovative crop nutrition products and technologies that help growers optimise yield, embrace sustainability, and reduce application rates. I am excited to join the organisation to build on this foundation and accelerate their adoption,” said Waltz, Chief Technology Officer of Ostara.
