Research & Development

With unmatched insights as a core company value, WinField® United understands the importance of research and is committed to delivering innovative solutions to your business. Over the past three years, WinField® United has conducted more than 50 internal research trials leading to not only improved and innovative products, but also data-driven tools that help make complex decisions easier.

Thanks to our R&D department, more than 25 proprietary products have been brought to market, such as Gravity® PGS, Wick™ Adjuvant, Aquicare™ Wetting Agent and Droplex™ Adjuvant. Currently we have more than 10 products in the research pipeline, ranging from fertilizers to adjuvants and herbicides.

WinField® United research spans across all segments of the professional products industry, including golf, lawn and sports turf, pest control, ornamentals, and aquatics and vegetation management.

Spray Analysis System

The Spray Analysis System, located in the WinField® United Product Development Center in River Falls, Wis., is a key component to our research department. Experts have tested more than 30,000 adjuvant samples since opening in 2011.

The Spray Analysis System’s wind tunnel design was recognized in April 2014 by the U.S. Patent Office for its unique role in spray particle analysis. WinField® United’s design is one of five spray labs in the United States that contains an enclosed wind tunnel, allowing experts to test realistic tank mixtures—not just water.
