ENVIRO-GRO TECHNOLOGIES INTRODUCES A 100 PERCENT NATURAL ORGANIC FERTILIZER

 ENVIRO-GRO TECHNOLOGIES INTRODUCES
 A 100 PERCENT NATURAL ORGANIC FERTILIZER
 LANCASTER, Pa., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Enviro-Gro Technologies recently introduced Terrene for retail distribution.
 Terrene is a high-quality, 100 percent natural organic fertilizer, that has been used commercially for maintenance of golf courses, athletic fields, and school and office campuses for more than five years.
 Although Terrene is currently available in Rhode Island; Connecticut; Massachusetts; Vermont; New Hampshire; Maine; Washington, D.C.; Maryland; Florida; Georgia, and South Carolina, a more extensive roll-out is being planned.
 Terrene is a slow release, non-burning fertilizer manufactured from organic wastewater residuals -- also known as biosolids. Biosolids are rich in organic matter and plant nutrients, which would be pollutants if released into waterways, while at the same time they are also highly effective land fertilizers. Normally, the wastewater products used to make Terrene would be incinerated or dumped into landfills or the ocean. Instead, Terrene is manufactured into granules near municipal waste treatment plants nationwide, by a process which cleans and recycles the wastewater and does not emit pollutants.
 The EPA supports the recycling of biosolids for use as fertilizers and has set up strict regulations to govern the process to assure public health and safety.
 Terrene supplies needed nutrients to new sod, lawns, trees, shrubs and flowers. Unlike chemical fertilizers, 90 percent of the nutrients in Terrene are water insoluble (WIN), and therefore, slow release. It provides substantial amounts of nitrogen, the main fertilizer ingredient required by grass; phosphorous, which helps lawns develop a healthy root system; and iron, which helps grass to stay green, particularly during hot, dry weather. Additionally, Terrene contains small quantities of micronutrients; is nearly salt-free, so it does not "burn" lawns; and protects nearby streams and groundwater by resisting nitrate leaching, due to its water insoluble, slow release nature.
 Jim Spindler, manager of marketing for specialty and retail products at Enviro-Gro Technologies, explained, "We like to call Terrene 'the affordable natural organic fertilizer.' It is in the unique position of being more affordable than other organic fertilizers, and, while being priced comparable to higher quality chemical fertilizers, its slow release of essential nutrients require fewer applications, and, thus, less overall expense."
