New organic fertilizers on the market

October 29, 2015  By Dave Harrison

Oct. 29, 2015, Victor, NY – BioWorks, Inc., committed to creating a safer environment, has introduced three Verdanta® fertilizers in Canada: K-Vita, PL-2 and OFE.

 • K-Vita is a 100% per cent organic-based granular fertilizer (2-0-20) in MINIGRAN® form, meaning each microgranule contains uniform nutrient content for better controlled nutrient delivery. K-Vita is ideal for providing potassium nutrition to ornamental or vegetable crops. Nutrients are released slowly and continuously by microbial activity producing humus for better rooting and less leaching.
• PL-2 is a 100 per cent organic-based liquid suspension fertilizer (2-0-6). PL-2 provides supplemental potassium with a low salt index for lower ECs in the growing medium. As a liquid suspension it is suitable for fertigation, therefore it can be applied with sprinklers or drip systems.
• OFE is a foliar iron fertilizer with seaweed extract (3-0-0 + 3% iron). It is derived from both organic and mineral sources and contains urea to help move iron into the plant leaf tissue, and contributes to greening up leaves.

“We are excited to be offering these Verdanta fertilizers to the Canadian market,” said Joe Gionta, Director of Marketing and Sales. “These biofertilizers will help growers encourage stronger, healthier crops while being respectful to the environment.”
