Researchers To Make Plant Pots Biodegradable

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — In the future, the pots holding nursery plants could be as biodegradable as the plants they contain.

A joint public-private research effort aims to design and build a nursery container made from leftover farm products.

Agricultural by-products as diverse as poultry feathers and cheese proteins will be among those studied as ingredients.

Researchers want to find by-products that can be converted into polymers and pressed into pot shapes.
