Natural Biotech

NPR's Chris Arnold reports on Pam Marone, an entrepreneur whose biotech company works to develop natural pesticides. She founded Agraquest in 1995, after working for Monsanto, and hopes to find pesticides that are less harmful to the environment than chemical agents used now. Marone wants to take the company public with a $40 million initial stock offering.
