SwRI scientists develop encapsulated products for agricultural applications such as sustained release of pesticides and fertilizers, stabilization and increased bioavailability of animal feed nutrients and seed protection.

Microencapsulated products for agricultural and industrial applications have been and continue to be developed by Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), with more than 60 years of experience in the field. Examples include:

  • Pesticides, fungicides and fumigants
  • Animal feeds and seeds
  • Veterinary formulations
  • Paints and coatings
  • Catalysts, resins, and adhesives
  • Pigments, dyes, and colorants
  • Lubricants and additives
  • Scratch and sniff
  • Anti-counterfeiting
  • Print advertising
  • Inks
