BOSTON, Aug 26, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- Converted Organics Inc., (Nasdaq:COIN) today announced that, in collaboration with Biorem Inc., it will be hosting two field day events, on August 26 and September 2, 2010 for agriculture retail crop advisors. The events will be held at the headquarters of Webster Inc., in Rexburg, Idaho. Each event is expected to run for approximately 4 hours, and the companies expect over 30 retail crop advisors and 100 growers to attend.
The field days will highlight the significant increase in yields that have resulted from using a blended liquid organic fertilizer featuring Converted Organics LC 1-1-1 and Biorem Inc.'s PBC (PharmGrade Biological Consortium). Converted Organics LC 1-1-1 is a highly concentrated Liquid Compost that helps to enhance microbial colonies within the soil ecosphere, and Biorem's PBC is a combination of over 200 pharmaceutical grade beneficial microbe species. When used together on potato plants, the products have generated increased yields and crop quality, while reducing incidence of disease. The fertilizer blend has been well received by potato growers in the State of Idaho, who are looking for ways to increase yields and quality while decreasing the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
"Our PBC product is the result of 15 years of exhaustive R&D effort, and has generated solid results when used on its own. However, when used in conjunction with Converted Organics' liquid fertilizer products and technology, the results far exceeded our expectations," said Kelly Tuttle, President and CEO of Biorem Inc. "When evaluating PBC's effectiveness on its own, we have measured yield increases of up to 23% after a year. The growth trial using the blended Converted Organics LC and Biorem PBC fertilizer commenced just 50 days ago, and we are already seeing bigger plants, better roots, more tuber set and smoother spuds. We look forward to promoting this unique blended product with the Converted Organics team during these Idaho field days."
