Mr Peter Balk

Chief Technology Officer NSure
From 1991 on and as a molecular biologist he studied plant quality issues in a variety of crops at Wageningen University and Research Centre. His focus is to recognise early events on the level of gene activity that will eventually result in changes in physiology of the plant or plant product. One of his projects resulted in a tool for forest nursery managers used to define the proper moment of seedling transfer to frozen storage thereby preventing damage upon reforestation. This was the moment (2006) he, together with Monique van Wordragen and a couple of shareholders, initiated the company NSure. From that moment on he is entirely focussed on realising added value for agriculture from information obtained by studying changes in gene activity.
