BOSTON, April 13, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Converted Organics Inc. (Nasdaq:COIN) announced today that it has received a preliminary order of up to 400,000 gallons of its all-natural, organic liquid fertilizer products (Converted Organics LC 1-1-1, and Converted Organics GP 3-2-1) from Biorem Inc. "By the end of this week we will have shipped 50,000 gallons, and another 40,000 gallons are scheduled to ship next week. The remainder of the order will follow in weekly shipments throughout the growing season," says Ed Gildea, President and CEO of Converted Organics. Gildea continues, "Our biggest push, and greatest success, has been in conventional crops." The fertilizers are to be applied to various conventional and organic crops throughout Idaho and Utah, including potatoes, sugar beets, alfalfa, wheat and barley.

Trials conducted using the GP 3-2-1 fertilizer on wheat fields at Ricks Farm in Rexburg, Idaho showed a 2.5% increase in protein content. Grant Ricks from Ricks Farm explains, "These trial results are extremely positive, as they show a significant increase in the protein content of the plant. This ultimately displays an improved nutritional quality of the grain and translates into a higher value crop for growers."

Converted Organics LC 1-1-1 and Converted Organics GP 3-2-1 organic liquid fertilizers are specially formulated to provide growers with a high-quality fully pasteurized liquid fertilizer product that can stimulate microbial activity within the soil and is suitable for use on a variety of crops and soils. Both products are high in total organic acids as well as other plant health components. The product's liquid form helps distribute nutrients to plants through the soil to maximize growth potential and aid in disease suppression.
