Agroknow History 101 (and Happy New Year!)

fireworks

Last night the Ghost of Christmas Past visited me in my sleep, and took me for a trip back to the very early years  of this company – to 2007 when the idea for setting it up was born. I was still working on my PhD on agricultural information management, and οne evening Kostas came by our house for a social visit. The idea hit us while we were sitting in a small room at the back of my house – full of books, CDs, dirty laundry and baby toys. We saw the potential in what I was doing in my PhD: why not start a company to deliver this promise?… Click to read the full post

Know Agro-Know: Meet Kelly Tzirita

Tzirita_Kelly

I still remember the time when the only two agronomists of Agro-Know were Babis and me, which may sound strange for a company named Agro-Know; however, it is obvious that what we are doing here in Agro-Know goes much further than a typical agricultural information management and related tasks. The team includes a number of people with different backgrounds, skills and expertise.

Things have changed in the meantime and Kelly is currently the sixth (!!) agronomist in the team (Babis, Maritina, Thodoris, Vasilis and me being the rest). She is currently helping us organize the huge list of contacts that we have acquired throughout the years and during good (and great sometimes!) collaborations in the context of projects and contracts – and this is only a part of her internship!… Click to read the full post
