Presented by Jason Crisp
Recap by guest-contributor Linnette Teo, University of Washington

Lisi Global is an agriculture and energy firm with a specific focus on pest management. They use a directed energy system that delivers electricity to kill pests in the soil such as nematodes. To tailor treatment of the soil to specific pests or pathogens, high voltage pulse DC is used that is specific to the pest’s biological system. This has numerous applications for the agriculture sector but has also garnered interest from landscape management uses such as golf courses.
