Dr Shakir Al-Zaidi, Russell IPM's Founder and Managing Director, has been recognised as a significant contributor to the biopesticide industry and awarded at the Biopesticide Summit that took place on the 2nd and 3rd July 2019 in Swansea, UK. Dr Al-Zaidi has patented multiple innovative products that have been making a positive difference to the daily work, output quantity and quality and revenue of farmers and food growers around the world.
