Draper, UT — In a newly-published annual report, the University of Utah’s Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization (TVC) touts the first-of-its-kind collaboration between Aqua-Yield®, the university’s Nano Institute and the TVC. It is a partnership based on assuring the sustainability of agriculture in the United States and around the globe through nano technology and nanoparticles, included in Aqua-Yield’s unique product line of specialty liquid fertilizers.

The university/corporate project, overseen by Aqua-Yield® Chief Science Officer Landon Bunderson PhD and Dr. Hamid Ghandehari, co-director of the Nano Institute, includes "building"/inventing nano-particles that will specifically focus on agriculture and combine these new findings with the “nanogronomy” advancements already instituted and in practice at Aqua-Yield. The company has been involved with nanotechnology since its startup in 2014.

The profile in TVC’s annual report (https://d182hggomw8pjd.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2018/10/26123717/2018_TVC_Annual_Report.pdf) clarifies the relationship between Aqua-Yield®, the Nano Institute and the center. Quoting from the article, “Aqua-Yield® and the Nano Institute contacted the Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization to patent their nanoparticle and tap into TVC’s business resources.”

Dr. Ghandehari has stated that, “Aqua-Yield® is at the forefront of using nanotechnology for the delivery of agrochemicals.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ru1qRqou4kk&t=10s)

About the Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization

Co-founded in 2014, Aqua-Yield® introduced the “smallest innovation in agricultural history”; nanoparticulation. Aqua-Yield’s technologies deliver materials directly to the plant’s cells leading to a much higher overall efficiency and resulting in significant advantages for the grower/producer. Results of the company’s unique technologies include; higher yields, lower cost inputs, shorter crop cycles, less environmental impact and an increase in delivery of nutrients.
