Technical Abstract: Recent research by our group at the NCAUR has concerned the research and development of biobased products, most of which are derived from the residues produced during agricultural processing. These include: novel sophorolipids from yeast as natural emulsifiers and surfactants for certified organic pesticides; biochars produced from various agricultural residues as replacements for peat moss in greenhouse substrates; seedmeals from biofuel processing as organic fertilizers; novel bioabsorbents from modified dried distillers grains; and plant extracts enriched in phytochemicals as nutraceuticals in processed foods.
