BioWRAP - Bioplastics with Regenerative Agricultural Properties

The BioWRAP project's primary aim is to reduce the use of plastics, herbicides and associated environmental impacts in agricultural production by creating an all-in-one bioplastic system that can better manage weeds, nutrients, soils, and water resources.

The project is funded by the National Science Foundation with a goal to develop spray-on bioplastics that protect soil and control weeds in an environmentally friendly way. RII Track-2 FEC: BioWRAP (Bioplastics With Regenerative Agricultural Properties): Spray-on bioplastics with growth synchronous decomposition and water, nutrient, and agrochemical management for enhanced field crop production. The project includes researchers from Kansas State University, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the South Dakota School of Mines.
