Specifically the UNIBEST Ag ManagerTM product is used to measure and report bio-available nutrient levels within the soil profile. In turn we support agronomists and growers goals to support crop yield targets while providing sustainable solutions in support of the 4R’s for nutrient management.


In addition, our clients can access specialty resin blends with the technology to study other contaminants of interest, including collecting data for Natural Resource Damage Assessments including hypoxia and off-target movement of contaminants that may impact the health of watersheds. Our ion-exchange resin platform for watershed and contaminant testing e.g. UNIBEST Eco-TrackerTM acts as a continual data logger within the natural environment.
