AgPro Exclusive: Aqua-Yield Joins Nano Institute; Eyes Product Expansion

Five years after introducing its crop fertility products with nano technology, Aqua-Yield is eyeing further product development while expanding its footprint.

“Today, 75% of our revenue comes from our ag products, and the balance is from the turf business,” says Aqua-Yield Clark Bell. “We currently have 30 distributors in the U.S, but we are looking to double that be the end of 2019.”

Bells says this includes expanding beyond its farmer network of distributors to include traditional ag retail and dealers, with those coming on-board in the first or second quarters of 2019.

Another development for the company is forming a first of its kind collaboration between the company and University of Utah’s Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization. This university/corporate partnership is located at the university’s Nano Institute, which is overseen by co-director Dr.Hamid Ghandehari.

Word-of-Mouth Farmer-Dealer Networks Shake Up Distribution – CropLife

In an industry that is constantly striving to revamp its public image, there’s no getting around the thorny issue of wasted fertilizer.

As a recent FAO report from the UN states, “Poor use efficiency of current fertilizers is a major issue. For instance, in China, the world’s largest consumer of nitrogen fertilizer, up to 50% of the nitrogen applied is lost by volatilization and another 5% to 10% by leaching.”

A study from Tamil Nadu Agricultural University in India found that, “Nutrient use efficiencies of conventional fertilizers hardly exceed 30-35 %, 18-20 % and 35-40 % for N, P and K respectively.”

This Utah father and son figured out how to grow more with less – Deseret News

DRAPER — Picture this scene: Son walks into his dad’s office at the family sod farm business.

Clark Bell, still in his 20s, clears his throat and says to his 50-something father, Warren, “There’s this new fertilizer technology I think we should try.”

Warren Bell rolls his eyes. Bear in mind, he has been growing grass ever since his father, T.H. Bell, started BioGrass Sod Farm way back in 1979 — a year before T.H. left for Washington, D.C., to serve as secretary of Education in Ronald Reagan’s Cabinet.

Warren Bell has heard his share of fertilizer sales pitches.

Clark Bell, left, and his father, Warren, co-founders of Aqua-Yield.

Clark Bell keeps talking. This isn’t fertilizer, per se, he explains. This is technology that infuses purified water into a product, creating nano particles that render the product considerably more potent. Applying it to fertilizer means you’ll need less fertilizer, not more, and you’ll get better results.

Massive Innovation is Almost Invisible – Utah Farm Bureau

Innovation on a small scale is rarely viewed as impressively in today’s world of “bigger is better”. Yet, a small start-up company in Utah is developing a process for delivering nutrients to plants that has the potential for a monumental impact in how farmers grow food for a hungry planet.

Sometimes called the world first environmentalists, farmers have always been concerned with being efficient and producing more while reducing their inputs, costs, and impact on the environment. According to German chemical company BASF, the world population doubled between 1970-2010, and yet farmland is decreasing in the United States. In fact, an extra 2.5 billion people will inhabit the earth by the year 2050, requiring farmers to grow 70 percent more food than is currently being grown.
