‘Green’ Fertilizer Demand Growing

The U.S. market for so-called ‘green’ fertilizers is on the increase due to environmental concerns and to fit into the criteria of value-added growing systems according to a release posted by Axcess News.


The article went on to note that one U.S. manufacturer of "green" fertilizer, Itronics Corp., recently announced that sales of its GOLD’n GRO brand of fertilizers notched a 65.7% increase in sales in the third quarter of 2008 compared to the same period a year ago.

Itronics’ founder, Dr. John Whitney, added that "this is the first time Itronics has achieved a positive gross profit in the third quarter, which is normally the lowest sales quarter of the year."
