BIO-AG president Greg Gaffney received his MS in horticulture at CSU Fresno in 1976. His other major areas of study include soil/plant nutrition and entomology. He started BIO-AG in Fresno, CA in 1975 and began specializing in biological control and plant nutrition. Using his own lab for analysis, he became the first company commercially rearing and releasing predatory insects in the San Joaquin Valley.
In 1980, Greg began his own organic farming operation in Fresno County. His first crops were mainly vegetables and fruit trees. He started the first local composting operation using the Scarab machine. Use of this device is now common among farmers.
A member of California Certified Organic Farmers, he has represented this organization at the state level for two years and at the county level for four years. During his many years as an organic farmer, his unique blends of organic materials (especially kelp derived products) have attracted considerable attention in the farming industry. In addition to selling these products to farmers, Greg is available as a soil and plant nutrition consultant and welcomes your farming questions.
