AgraQuest expands

By September 20, 2011

The sustainable crop protection company AgraQuest is expanding. The company is celebrating the renovation and expansion of its lab space with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 13 at 1530 Drew Ave.


The growing Davis company’s revenues saw a 30 percent per annum boost in the past three years, allowing it to add 53 jobs. Most of those hires were for skilled scientists, to develop biopesticides and similar natural ag products.

Davis native and first-year attorney Justin Lowenthal opened the Lowenthal Law Office in downtown Davis on May 15.

“My practice concentrates on corporate and small business law, but I also assist clients with real estate matters, estate planning, and civil litigation,” he said.

Lowenthal lives in Davis. Before opening his practice, he was an intern for eight months at the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office, and worked as a senior law clerk for a boutique corporate law firm in Sacramento for 2 1/2 years
