GOLD'n GRO multi-nutrient zinc fertilizers provide improved soil nutrient bioavailability which increases nutrient uptake by the crops so that smaller quantities of fertilizer can be used as compared to competing fertilizers. This feature of the GOLD'n GRO fertilizer combined with resulting yield improvements makes them more affordable to farmers.

Applying smaller amounts of fertilizer reduces risk of fertilizer run-off and ground water contamination. Improved nutrient metal uptake by the crops means that residual metal buildup in the soil is nearly eliminated. Over the years field testing has also demonstrated meaningful crop yield improvement using GOLD'n GRO fertilizers. Numerous prior press releases have provided specific examples of yield improvement.

"Improvements in yield and soil nutrient bioavailability are attractive to our distributor and its customers," said Dr. John Whitney, Itronics President. "GOLD'n GRO is a truly 'Green' line of fertilizers due to the innovative recycling technology used in manufacturing and the improvement to the crops and the environment from using these fertilizers."
