BOSTON, Oct. 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Converted Organics Inc. (Nasdaq:COIN) announced today that growers are reporting remarkably positive results from using Converted Organics™ LC and Converted Organics™ GP fertilizers. Throughout Eastern Idaho, potato growers using the product are reporting significant increases in both yields and in disease suppression. "For organic and conventional growers, the ability to control diseases without fumigating the soil is extremely important due to the high costs and toxicity of synthetic fumigants. Converted Organics LC and Converted Organics GP allow growers to decrease or even eliminate the need to use pesticides or other fumigants in the soil," said Geoffrey McInnes, the Converted Organics Sales Representative working with the potato growers. McInnes also noted, "Converted Organics LC was used in six of the largest potato operations this year representing 40,000 acres. In all instances, growers reported a positive response. After the success we've seen with Converted Organics LC this year, we can expect to increase sales up to 500,000 gallons in 2011."
The conventional growers who applied Converted Organics fertilizers were pleasantly surprised with the ease of application, the overall performance of the products, and the additional revenues generated from the increased yields. Grant Ricks of Ricks Farms in Rexburg, Idaho, recently stated, "I'm not quite sure why we are seeing such a positive response to the LC and GP in the spuds in regards to quality as well as quantity, but there is no question that I am increasing my usage next year. I plan to use the products in my conventional crops, as well as organics."
