AGRONWORKS, LLC was founded in 2013 as a research company, primarily developing natural and biodegradable coatings and films for placing viable soil microbes directly onto seeds and dry fertilizers. The primary purpose of these biopolymer coatings is to encapsulate beneficial soil biology directly onto seed or fertilizer pellets together with specific nutritional elements for feeding the microorganisms, once activated. Applications are easy to accomplish in a quick, single step process, either during field operations or in a seed/fertilizer coating facility.
AGRONWORKS experience draws from years of work in chemical coatings in multiple industries and applications. Current scientific collaborations for developing performance biopolymers evolved working with experts in the fields of biology, chemistry, botany and agronomy in agriculture, horticulture, and soil reclamation. AGRONWORKS biopolymer coatings are formulated with GRAS listed ingredients, which are environmentally friendly and biodegradable, and thus become part of the solution, not part of the problem.
