April 12, 2016, Victor, NY— ON-Gard™, a plant-derived water-soluble fertilizer from BioWorks, is now available in Canada. It can be used in greenhouses, high tunnels, nurseries and on turf and landscapes.

 ON-Gard is an innovative fertilizer or nutrition complement that increases stress tolerance (heat/cold, drought, low light, salinity, pest), improves plant development and growth, and enhances nutrient uptake. Trials have also shown ON-Gard to improve Brix content.
 
Because ON-Gard is 100 per cent plant-derived, it is free of antibiotics, heavy metals, chlorides and other polluting agents found in animal-based amino acid fertilizers. The vegetal amino acids are derived from plant protein hydrolysate and are manufactured for consistency.
 
ON-Gard can be applied as a spray, root drench or dip. It improves the quality of fruits and vegetables by improving yield and reducing nitrates. It improves ornamentals with faster rooting, better foliage colour and more vivid blooms.
 
“ON-Gard will be an important tool for many of our growers,” said Joe Gionta, director of marketing and sales. “It will enhance traditional fertilizer programs, supporting all phases of development especially flowering and fruit enlargement.”
