Teri Riess
UNIBEST International LLC

UNIBEST International’s Ag Manager™ platform introduces a new insight to soil sampling by using hydrogen and hydroxide charged ion-exchange resins (same elements released by plant roots in exchange for soil nutrients) to better simulate nutrient interactions by the plant root and soil by adsorbing only ‘Bioavailable nutrients’ that are in forms and amounts available for plant uptake. This measurement of nutrient Bioavailability offers industry leading insights associated with soil profiles to ensure the right amount of fertilizer is applied at the right time, at the right rate, in the right form and in the right location. UNIBEST International’s Ag Manager™ also measures the soils ability to release plant available nutrients in pounds per acre per day to help growers better match critical plant nutrient uptake periods in a variety of cropping systems.
