“Jerry Stoller will be remembered as an entrepreneur and a revolutionary pioneer in plant physiology, plant nutrition, and plant hormone technology.
He dedicated his life to finding ways to help good things grow.
From his roots growing up on a farm to his days studying agronomy at the University of Illinois and Cornell, he was always energized and fascinated by the concepts of productivity and quality required to produce good outcomes. In 1970, Jerry founded Stoller USA Inc. as a company that could help farmers do a better job at growing crops.
The revolutionary approach produced from this research took the guesswork out of maintaining healthy crops through the management of plant hormone levels and micronutrients throughout the plant growth cycle, maintaining optimum hormone balance. Through this process, maximum genetic expression is achieved, resulting in healthier plants better able to withstand the effects of stress under various conditions.
Jerry was able to revolutionize the agricultural industry, allowing people from all walks of life to better provide sustenance for their families. Jerry’s passion for encouraging healthycrops around the world led to international growth for his company. The Stoller Group currently employs over 1,000 people and provides its products and services to over 60 countries. Mr. Stoller served as chairman of the board of Stoller USA Inc. and The Stoller Group Inc. The Stoller Group and its worldwide subsidiaries will continue Jerry’s legacy.”
