Aquatrols to Present at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly

Aquatrols Changing the Way
Aquatrols will present four posters at the 2014 European Geosciences Union General Assembly. The scientific gathering, which takes place in Vienna, Austria from April 27 to May 2, will bring together geoscientists from all over the world and cover all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences.

Aquatrols is pleased to present on a number of topics centered on soil surfactant technology. Dr. Matt Madsen of the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service will present his findings on Aquatrols Seed Enhancement Technology. Dr. Mike Fidzana of Penn State University will also present new research on the patent-pending seed enhancement formulations.

Dr. Stan Kostka, Aquatrols’ Director of Technology and Innovation, is a co-author on two additional posters. The first will highlight changes in our understanding of water repellency in highly managed soils over the past 20 years while the second focuses on using surfactants to increase irrigation efficiency for irrigated potatoes.

Aquatrols’ participation in the 2014 EGU General Assembly highlights the company’s commitment to innovation and science-based research.

“Being active participants in the scientific community has always been important to us. We believe in each of our products and the research that goes into developing and supporting them. Participating in events like the EGU General Assembly gives us the chance to show the global scientific community precisely how we are changing the way the world grows,” said Aquatrols President and CEO Tracy Jarman.
