LOVELAND — Growcentia Inc., a Loveland-based biological agtech company that produces microbial and natural soil and plant health solutions, has added Darrin Paschal as its chief commercial officer.
Paschal is a 25-year industry veteran in indoor growing, home gardening, horticulture and agriculture.
“Darrin’s extensive network and his proven knowledge in arenas so integral to our success make him an ideal addition to our growing company,” Scott Wiley, CEO, said in a written statement.
“Growing up in a rural farming community inspired my passion for soil health and instilled regenerative farming practices that I employ on my own farm to this day,” Paschal said. “My goal is to help companies and growers benefit from leading-edge sustainable and environmentally responsible technologies, and I’m grateful to join a like-minded organization that provides those advanced solutions.”
For most of the last decade, Growcentia has applied science to deliver biological growing solutions for growers of all types of crops. Founded by three soil microbiologists from Colorado State University, the company’s Mammoth and Mammoth Garden product lines harness the power of nature to increase yields and improve plant health while reducing the impact on the environment.
The company recently opened a new headquarters in Loveland. The 30,000-square-foot facility allows the company to expand its research and development efforts and grow its national and international customer base. It features two microbiological fermentation manufacturing bays, an indoor plant trial with experimentation space and a laboratory for R&D.
