UNIBEST - UNIversal Bioavailability Environmental/Soil Test

For the last eighteen years UNIBEST has been providing farmers, agribusiness, environmental managers, and home garden consumers with monitoring products and data that are suited for their own unique application – whether that be to optimize crop management, understand environmental contamination, or grow a healthier backyard plant.  In any case we are a trusted resource, diligently helping our customers succeed.

In the agricultural arena, our mission is to provide farmers with innovative plant nutrition testing through UNIBEST resin technology. The patented technology generates precise information on the types and amounts of nutrients being made available to crops in the time they are growing. Because the test accurately simulates nutrient availability in the soil-root environment, it is unlike any other testing method. With UNIBEST resin technology, farmers can experience increased profitability as yields and nutritional inputs are maximized.

Water quality, environmental, surface water discharge and watershed quality efforts are being managed by our environmental division.  We are focused on providing enhanced and real-time data allowing environmental project managers to have access to improved contaminant tracking systems allowing for vastly improved decision making tools.

We are developing new and innovative solutions for the next generation markets and we are committed to working diligently with universities and other academic and research institutions to ensure scientific methods form the cornerstone for commercial acceptance.

Our History

UNIBEST, Inc. was established in 1995 to target the advantages of a new Patent for ion-exchange resin testing within agricultural and environmental markets. In 1999, following several years of focused scientific studies, UNIBEST International worked with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) so that the company could access PNNL’s state-of-the-art Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory to proceduralize its analytical and laboratory methods. In addition, we previously teamed with the Agricultural, Business and Commercialization department at PNNL to expand our research & development capabilities and complete those activities necessary for market introduction. Today, UNIBEST and PNNL cooperate together in a formal Mentor-Protégé Agreement.

'Increased governmental regulation concerning environmental issues will greatly affect the agriculture industry in the near future. Annual pesticide build-up is driving increasingly strict environmental regulation. Increased governmental regulation is also increasing in the oversight of water application in irrigated settings. Rivers and streams once primarily used for agriculture are now being reserved for environmental purposes to the often-perceived detriment of the irrigated acreage. Ground water use is being restricted to protect water tables in many areas. Nitrate leaching is coming under greater scrutiny. Nitrate concentrations in ground water, through over application in agricultural settings have become a concern in many communities.”
 
Where we are Today...

Today, UNIBEST is a worldwide leader in soil testing and environmental monitoring having developed strategic alliances with industry-leading distributors such as Land O' Lakes WinField Solutions. This new, innovative technology provides reliable data for environmental studies, eliminates problems inherent in current testing methods, agricultural soil testing, and reduces overall costs.

Our technology is being deployed on all continents excluding Antarctica, from timber farms in Sweden to research facilities in Japan, wineries and vineyards in Washington state, tomato and other vegetable farms in Mexico, potato farms in the Pacific Northwest, and rice fields in Vietnam.

History & Direction

UNIBEST, the short form of UNIversal Bioavailability Environmental/Soil Test, was re-established in 2010 to target the advantages of a new Patent for ion-exchange resin testing within agricultural markets.  In 1999, following several years of focused scientific studies, UNIBEST International worked with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) so that the company could access PNNL’s state-of-the-art Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory to proceduralize its analytical and laboratory methods. Today, UNIBEST and PNNL cooperate together in a formal Mentor-Protégé Agreement. The company also teamed with commercial agri-business to expand its research & development capabilities and complete activities necessary for market introduction.

Field Advancements

For the last four years UNIBEST has been providing farmers, agribusiness and home garden consumers with monitoring products and data that are suited for their own unique application – whether that be to optimize crop management, understand environmental contamination, or grow a healthier backyard plant.  In any case, we are a trusted resource, diligently helping our customers succeed.

UNIBEST Sustainable Solutions:

Increased governmental regulation concerning environmental issues is beginning to greatly affect the agriculture industry. With little increase in farmable acres and a rapidly increasing global population, growers must maximize acreage by increasing crop yields and quality. Increasing yields often involves increased fertilizer inputs, driving a greater demand for precision nutrient data. Current methods make the balance of plant uptake, nutrient application timing and the minimization of environmental impacts difficult. UNIBEST precision nutrient monitoring products and services assist in achieving both agricultural and environmental objectives. Quantifying sustainable agricultural production is an attainable goal with UNIBEST precision nutrient data.

Technology Overview

UNIBEST’s suite of patented nutrient monitoring systems are founded upon advanced ion-exchange resin technologies that adsorb nutrients only in forms available for plant uptake in the time they are growing.

For understanding precision nutrient availability in agriculture, golf courses, sports turf, lawn, garden and nursery applications, UNIBEST’s resin systems simulate the ion-dynamics experienced in the soil-root system.    

Advantage

Data obtained from UNIBEST Resin Platforms reflect the active, dynamic components of field moist soils and their individually unique bioavailability systems as they function over time.

Methods that extract soil nutrients with a suite of laboratory chemicals may not accurately reflect how elements in a natural soil environment respond to continuous nutrient removal by biological activity over time. Let UNIBEST Resin Platforms provide this data!
