Since the availability of water was a key factor in food production in those regions, the primary goal was to provide a system of water management to allow for food growth in areas where water resources are limited.

At present, TGT now offers a complete line of products that promote efficient agricultural water usage, a nano technology for clean drinking water and innovative bio solutions  to increase yields of quality crops. 

Uniting Science with Nature


In 1992, John Peter Abt founded The Terawet Corporation while doing research in the field of super absorbent polymer technology with the intent of utilizing these polymers to better manage water in agricultural systems. Three years of field trials and research followed, eventually culminating in the development of the proprietary TeraGel® crystal.

In 1996, due to the obvious need for increased food production in the developing world, the company embarked on marketing its products globally. In the spring of 1998, the company began its domestic marketing efforts starting with the agricultural markets in the mid-western agricultural belt of the United States.

It became apparent that the already established plant growing market could also benefit from this water saving polymer technology. This conclusion led to the development of the liquid polymers, in 2000, providing established plant growers with eco-friendly products that would reduce water usage, increase root development and grow healthy and abundant plants. The goal had been reached to provide eco-friendly products that performed the desired benefits for all growers while still keeping within the framework of “Uniting Science with Nature.”

In 2008, the company would undergo another transition and embarked on the development of other green technologies that would benefit the world in general. In 2011, Terawet Ventures, Inc. has changed the corporate name to reflect their new and broader engagement to Terawet Green Technologies (TGT).  In 2015, among the new and innovative technologies being made available included disinfection of drinking water, significant increased drought resistance for plants, customized colloidal micronutrients and colloidal NPK, and soil and water remediation of nuclear waste.   


TGT’s mission is to provide eco-friendly products and systems that affect the world in a positive and beneficial way in the areas of soil, water two of the three cornerstones of all life.

Terawet was originally founded with the intent of providing a means of reducing world hunger by increasing food production in areas of the world where insufficient capabilities existed to produce adequate food resources
