EcoVita, a homogeneous granular organic fertilizer, has been added to Bioworks Inc.'s Verdanta biofertilizers product family. This fertilizer will be manufactured and supplied to BioWorks by DCM Corporation of Belgium, a producer of natural and organic-based fertilizers in Western Europe.

EcoVita is suitable for a wide variety of crops with its gentle release curve including:
• Organic fertilization as a base nutrition in potting mixes
• Leafy vegetables
• Fruiting vegetables (as a top dressing)
• Roses and other ornamentals

The new fertilizer offers long-lasting and continuous action for 75 to 100 days and contains organic phosphorus (5 percent P2O5) for fast rooting. Nutrients in EcoVita are gradually released by the soil microbes, in addition to producing humus for better rooting and less leaching. EcoVita is OMRI Listed, making it suitable for use in organic production.

"We're pleased to introduce EcoVita 7-5-10 as our organic NPK product to complement our organic products: K-Vita 2-0-20 and PL-2 2-0-6," says John Francis, Technical Services Manager. "Organic growers can now have an organic product with uncomposted nutrient sources that attract a diverse group of microorganisms into the root zone."

Verdanta granular fertilizers are developed using the exclusive Minigran Technology, a unique formulation providing dust-free, organic and organo-mineral microgranules with a homogeneous composition that assures a perfectly uniform nutrient analysis in every granule. It flows freely through all types of application equipment and offers better control of nutrient release.
