Colin BellCo-Founder and Chief Growth Officer
I left my Research Scientist I academic position at Colorado State University in March 2015 to launch Growcentia. Growcentia is a startup in the Ag-Tech sector that develops natural and microbial solutions to increase plant quality and yield across many crops. Our first product, MAMMOTH P® is a beneficial bacterial bloom stimulant that targets phosphorus cycling to maximize plant development and yield. Thousands of producers across the world are using MAMMOTH P® and reporting overwhelmingly positive results. MAMMOTH P® is now being sold in > 1000 locations globally.
My academic research efforts focused on plant-microbial relationships within the rhizosphere zone to identify mechanisms that may influence soil microbial taxonomic and functional differences among plant species. As a Research Scientist at Colorado State University, I published dozens of peer reviewed publications that were focused on elucidating microbial mediated processes that enhance plant growth and success.
