Research Project: The Development, Optimization, and Application of Novel, Slow-Release Engineered Fertilizer of High Performance

Location: Bioproduct Chemistry and Engineering Research

Project Number: 5325-41000-056-02
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Feb 01, 2007
End Date: Apr 30, 2011

Objective:
Project seeks to create a chemical fertilizer alternative that is superior in performance, economically competive, and environmentally responsible.

Approach:
Research will be conducted to develop fertilizer formulations and to design polymer matrices for encapsulation. Subsequently, formulations will be optimized for sustained release of encapulated materials, and evaluated for the impact on the plants root development, growth, yield, and past resistence.
