For the last fifteen 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.
Our mission is to provide a tool for sustainable agricultural practices, leading toward a paradigm shift that allows agricultural as well as environmental objectives to be achieved. 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. 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.
UNIBEST, Inc. was established in 1995 to target the advantages of 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 have access to 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.
Interest in the UNIBEST technology quickly expanded beyond the research and development community when in 2002, the Marketing Assessment and Strategy Development program at Washington State University published a marketing study which concluded that industry leaders in agriculture are interested in the UNIBEST product and methodology because of its potential to increase profitability, either in efficiency of production and/or lowering of operation costs. The marketing study also cited the potential for significant, continued growth and the inherent link between agriculture and the environment.
Where we are Today...
Today, UNIBEST is rapidly becoming a worldwide leader in soil testing and environmental monitoring. 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.
