Las Vegas, NV, December 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- With more than 15 years of experience in the field of agriculture, Bryce Patterson, Founder and President of Field 16 LLC, has made a solid investment in the future of agriculture and urban farming through his innovative vision and efforts to make this vision a reality. Early in his career he saw the absolute necessity of a marriage between horticulture and technology, and through a true hands-on attitude and a passionate entrepreneurial spirit Mr. Patterson has brought the advancement of agriculture to new levels. His forward-looking goals include continuing to find new, cutting edge products to advance the industry and create positive, long-term effects for the environment.
In recent years Mr. Patterson has launched Heavy 16 Professional Hydroponic Nutrients, the brand of parent company Field 16 LLC. The philosophy for his products is simple: consistent hand-made quality, with efficacy and environmental stewardship taking top priority. Mr. Patterson is able to do this by utilizing a revolutionary approach to hydroponic farming methods. He refers to his approach as “hydro-organic”: the combination of hydroponic and organic growing methods, allowing the gardener to get full spectrum nutrition while using less fertilizer. Through these methods he is able to decrease dependence on vital resources such as water while greatly increasing efficiency of the resources used, and consistently providing products that equate to heavier yields and higher quality produce. All of these factors are what validate the serious interest of investors and farming industry veterans into Mr. Patterson’s work.
Prior to founding Field 16 LLC, Mr. Patterson served as the General Manager of Kirby Peak Ranch in Mariposa, CA. Here he managed a 20,000 ft2 Cravo retractable roof greenhouse and Argus controls, oversaw sales, managed aquaponic/hydroponic operations and developed a Koppert integrated pest management program. Before joining Kirby Peak Ranch Mr. Patterson was the Commodity Manager for Earthbound Farms in San Juan Bautista, CA. In this role he served as the field and commodity market liaison working with $350 million annual revenue while also assisting with management and operations. Mr. Patterson also worked with El Modeno Gardens in Irvine, CA, Plantel Nurseries in Santa Maria, CA, Houweling’s Hot House in Oxnard, CA, Merryvale Vineyards in Saint Helena, CA, and as a partner in Ecoco, a coconut fiber (coir) based environmental landscape company with experience in native habitat restoration and low impact development designs and installations. Through these experiences, Mr. Patterson has established a working knowledge of agriculture’s future as well as the network base to discern the wisest plan of action.
Mr. Patterson earned his Agricultural Systems Management degree from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, CA, where he was the winner of the 2002 Michael T. Andrews Award for designing and evaluating aeroponic systems for the production of high-value root crops. He currently resides in Temecula, CA where he perfects Heavy 16 by blending and experimenting with outstanding new derivatives.
“We are thrilled to have Bryce as a consultant to our Team,” commented Dr Grow It All CEO, Dave Lovegrove. “What he doesn’t know about plants and fertilizers isn’t worth knowing!”
Mr Lovegrove added, “We hold the patents for what is arguably one of the best natural fertilizers in the world – and it’s taken us 20 years to get to the point we are at now, where we are just about to commence commercial production in our new factory in Las Vegas. Try it and you’ll see what Bryce saw!”
