Speaker Bio
Michel Ragot is co-founder and Chief Business Officer at DeltaGee, a company focused on breeding process optimization and decision-making support. He is also managing director at Nouvelle France Genetics, a Minnesota-based plant breeding consulting practice.
His involvement with plant breeding dates back to his MSc at AgroParisTech in Paris, France. He was later introduced to molecular breeding during his PhD at North Carolina State University in the USA, which led him to spend most of his career at the interface between breeding and technologies with a constant focus on breeding efficiency.
Michel has worked with many crops, from barely domesticated ones to the most widely grown, from field- to active glasshouse-grown, from commodities to vertically integrated. His experience also spans public and private sectors, from large multinational groups to small local organizations, throughout the world.
He is passionate about plant breeding and believes that skills and knowledge transfer are key to continuous improvement.
