Coating technologies have been applied in numerous capacities in agriculture and aquaculture systems. Applications include controlled or improved seed germination, controlled delivery of pesticides, fungicides, and the like, improved seed handling capabilities, controlled fertilizer release, and cleanup operations. This presentation takes a look back at selected applications of controlled release in these areas ~30+ years ago to give a sense of the application scope and problems that were solved. This information coupled with knowledge of current problems and technology can help address current concerns.
