MONTREAL, QC – Earth Alive Clean Technologies Inc. (CSE: EAC) (“Earth Alive” or the “Company”), a leading developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art microbial technology-based products, is pleased to announce continued positive results from tomato trials using its microbial biofertilizer, Soil Activator™. Earth Alive’s Soil Activator™ is a patent pending, CFIA registered, organic microbial biofertilizer designed to produce more vigorous plants and higher yields by improving nutrient availability in the soil.
The Rubio Farm in Trujillo, Peru, grew tomatoes using Soil Activator™. Tomato plants treated with Soil Activator™ produced larger plants, with larger leaves, stronger stems, increased root size, and doubled the farm’s average yield. Furthermore, the farm reported a longer tomato-harvesting period – from mid-March 2016 well into late August. Mr. Andres Rubio, of the Rubio Farm stated, “Last year we harvested a total of 3,000 boxes however, this year, using Soil Activator™, we harvested a total of 7,000 boxes. My farm has become a regional showcase demonstrating how using sustainable practices can make a difference in the livelihood of small and big growers alike.”
Mr. Rubio in Peru further added, “Soil Activator™ has changed our operations, and we now use it on every vegetable crop on our far.” He concluded by saying, “Many neighboring growers are visiting our farm and asking us what we’re applying because they cannot believe we are still harvesting first grade quality tomatoes at this time of the year; we are getting more quantity without sacrificing quality.”
“We currently have six ongoing tomato trials in different regions of Chile as well as a number of other countries,” stated Mrs. Paola Correal, Director of Operations for Earth Alive. “All those trials are showing bigger root systems, taller and greener plants, increased foliage and extended bud production. Based on current observations we expect similar results from the final yield.”
Fred Perron-Welch, Director of Sustainable development for Earth Alive added, “With Mr. Rubio’s increased production revenue, he has rented 6 more hectares of land and has more than doubled his work force creating local employment in the region. This is a confirmation that the use of Soil Activator™ is making a difference in the lives of growers and their communities.”
