The article talked about how growing enough crops for the rising human population is becoming more difficult. Governments and companies are looking at pesticides as a way to eliminate unwanted pests; however, they also come with harmful effects on the environment and the human populous. According to the article, this has led to the need for natural, non-synthetic pesticides for the agricultural markets. Without this type of solution, millions of dollars are lost along with the failed crops. MustGrow is a publicly-traded agriculture biotech company focused on commercializing a portfolio of organic and natural biologic pesticides, fungicides and fertilizers to help combat the need for crops.

Chemical maker DSM sees strong demand for methane-reducing cow feed additive

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Dutch specialty chemicals company DSM is expecting strong demand for its feed additive which limits the amount of methane burped into the air by cows, its contribution to the global fight against climate change. Methane has a much larger effect on global warming than carbon dioxide (CO2) and reducing methane emissions could buy time to confront the much bigger challenge of cutting the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere. “We see a lot of demand already, from food producers and farmers”, DSM’s Clean Cow program director Mark van Nieuwland told Reuters in an interview, even though the launch of the additive, Bovaer, is still more than a year away. “Large (food) companies have clear climate targets, and they need farms to change to meet those. Also consumers are increasing pressure on farmers and many farmers themselves want to limit emissions.” Swiss KitKat and Nescafe maker Nestle this month said it wanted to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050, while French dairy maker Danone has said it wants to halve its CO2 emissions by 2030. Cows constantly burp up the powerful greenhouse gas methane but DSM says including Bovaer in a cow’s die...

Email Case Study: Wayfair’s Triggered, Personalized Campaigns

Recently I logged onto Wayfair’s mobile app to shop for a bed for my daughter. I looked at lofted beds with storage as well as bunk beds. With a large selection, I spent a bit of time refining by features, price, and size. I then left the app since I was in the research stage. Shortly after that initial visit, I received a series of personalized emails from Wayfair based on what I was shopping for. Some of the most successful marketing emails are triggered by shoppers’ behavior. This was the case with Wayfair. Its series of emails to me is a good example of a personalized, browse-recovery campaign. Subject lines. According to a study by Campaign Monitor, personalized subject lines produce a 26 percent higher open rate than non-personalized. A 2016 study by Statista found the open rate for marketing emails with a personalized message was 18.8 percent, compared to 13.1 percent without personalization. Thus a triggered email should include a personalized subject line that contains references to the featured products. Every subject line in the series included a reference to the product I was shopping for. Also, each subject line is different from the previous one. The formatting an...
