Aquatrols Corporation of America, the global leader in soil surfactant technology,recently announced a new Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Dr. Matt Madsen and the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS).

The objective of the new CRADA is to further refine and evaluate surfactant seed coating technologies for use in wildfire rehabilitation, turf and pasture grasses, restoration species, and other horticultural and agricultural systems.

The three-year agreement renews a CRADA that Aquatrols first signed with the ARS in 2012. The original partnership has resulted in promising field and greenhouse trials, pending patents, and initial steps toward commercialization of the surfactant seed coating technology.

“We are very encouraged by the work that Dr. Madsen and his team have put together over the past three years. This innovative technology has shown incredible potential with wide-ranging impacts in multiple industries. Aquatrols’ stated mission is to change the way the world grows and this technology has the potential to do just that. We are proud to renew this partnership and look forward to continuing our work with the ARS,” said Aquatrols’ President and CEO Tracy Jarman. 

Dr. Madsen was equally enthusiastic about the new agreement. “I am excited for the opportunity to continue our CRADA with Aquatrols. Having this agreement will not only help with developing novel technologies to improve seeding success in water-limited environments, but should also help provide a means for transferring these technologies to various systems across the globe.”
