AgriThority® Deepens Expertise in South America with Addition of Agronomist 

(Kansas City, Missouri, USA — Aug. 11, 2022) South America continues to see increased demand for growth in agricultural innovation. To help accelerate more new innovations through product, market and business development, AgriThority® adds an experienced Product Development Agronomist based in Argentina.  

Eleonora Da Riva is a Master’s degreed entomologist and agronomist with project experience on “Spatial and temporal dynamic of Helicoverpa zea and Spodoptera frugiperda populations using pheromone traps in regions of Argentina.” As an AgriThority Product Development Agronomist, LATAM, Da Riva will apply her expertise in entomology, as well as biological and synthetic chemistries for crop protection. 

“We continue to see an increased focus on bringing new innovations to evaluate and eventually market in South America,” said Ignacio Colonna, AgriThority Global Director, Science and Technology. “Eleonora’s experience in entomology and agronomy paired with her product development knowledge will be an asset to our AgriThority clients.” 

Fluent in Spanish and English, Da Riva brings general manager experience from Provivi SRL where she supervised regulatory, accounting and financial activities in Argentina. Her role also included building relationships with academic, regulatory and strategic stakeholders for market research, foreign trade and freedom to operate requirements. Da Riva’s previous scientific roles expanded into product development team management following stints with AgIdea SA as entomology and microbiology services manager and laboratory scientist.
