Q&A: Ag Disruptor Crop Enhancement Gets Seven-Figure Investment

Cavallo Ventures, the venture capital arm of Wilbur-Ellis, announced last week its seven-figure investment in Crop Enhancement Inc., an innovator of sustainable agrichemical products for enhancing crop yields.

With its investment, Cavallo Ventures aims to accelerate the development of Crop Enhancement’s breakthrough crop protection technology in the United States — particularly for the production of high-value fruit and vegetable crops.


Crop Enhancement’s trademark product, CropCoat, is also nearing regulatory approval in Indonesia.

We chatted with both Mike Wilbur, President and CEO of Cavallo Ventures, and Kevin Chen, CEO of Crop Enhancement, on the background of the new investment, and what we can expect to see next with the company’s technology and marketing.
