BOSTON, Jul 15, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- Converted Organics Inc. (Nasdaq:COIN) announced that it has received an order of its Converted Organics LC 1-1-1(TM) liquid organic fertilizer from its distributor R.A.S.P. of Carver, MA to be utilized by Morse Brothers, Inc., a leading cranberry grower, and Massachusetts' largest fresh fruit supplier to Ocean Spray.
R.A.S.P's orders of Converted Organics LC 1-1-1 liquid organic fertilizer have increased four-fold in 2010. Morse Brothers reported positive results from the use of Converted Organics' LC 1-1-1 liquid organic fertilizer in 2009. The company achieved favorable results for hard-to-grow first year varieties such as Ben Lear cranberries with yields of 200 barrels to the acre. They also reported that less than five percent of the crop was affected by berry rot, a disease common to commercially-grown fruits which can lead to major crop losses.
"Morse Brothers is dedicated to providing customers such as Ocean Spray with the highest-quality cranberries possible to meet consumer demand. Cranberries are a unique crop that requires optimal nutrition, which is why increasingly more growers are using Converted Organics LC 1-1-1 to improve cranberry yields and quality while also lowering costs," said David A. Flannery, Vice President of Marketing for Converted Organics. "Our liquid fertilizer is resulting in healthier plants and markedly improved yields in terms of barrels produced per acre. Growers are even reporting that two-year old bogs are bearing fruit when our liquids are used, which is an atypical, yet very positive occurrence."
Converted Organics OMRI-listed organic fertilizers are produced from recycled food waste. Converted Organics LC 1-1-1(TM) is specially formulated to provide growers with a high-quality fully pasteurized liquid compost that stimulates microbial activity in the soil. The product provides mineral nutrients, amino acids and bioactive components to plants which maximizes growth and suppresses plant diseases.
