Advanced Organic Products Worldwide, a Subsidiary of Talisman Holdings, Inc., Addresses Critical Worldwide Food Shortage Problem, a Green Solution to a Global Crisis

SPRINGFIELD, OH--(Marketwire - August 24, 2010) - Talisman Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TMHO) -- The issue of escalating food prices is a matter of global concern. Food demand has outpaced the world's ability to increase food supplies. This has resulted in a rapid rise in food prices and local food shortages. On top of this, the world's population grows by 80 million individuals each year.

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates that the total world demands for agricultural products will be 60% higher in 2030 than it is today.

The problem is that options for increasing food production are limited by the supply of land and water. The increasing world population, among other factors, limits any significant expansion of global arable acres. In some countries acreage may increase, but elsewhere arable land is shrinking. For example, China alone lost over 100,000 acres of arable land in 2007, and over a million acres of U.S. agriculture land is lost to development uses each year.

Just consider:

1. The world's grain stocks to use ratio is at its lowest level in 35 years.
2. In eight of the nine years since 2000, global consumption of grains and oil seeds has exceeded production.
3. If the world's farmers stopped growing food today, we would only have enough grains to feed the world's population for 58 days.

We are simply not growing enough food to keep up with world demand. Given the fact that there is only so much land, the only solution is enhanced efficiency with respect to production. IN OTHER WORDS, WITHOUT FERTILIZER THE GAME IS OVER.

AOP, a subsidiary of Talisman Holdings, in cooperation with its technology partner has created a line of organic liquid fish fertilizers using a proprietary enzymatic low temperature process that produces a hyperactive bio-stimulant different and more efficient than anything else on the market today. The naturally occurring organic oils, collagens and amino acids in the AOP products are retained in the soil. These properties provide a veritable feast of essential nutrients to stimulate microbial growth... thus aiding in composting of organic materials required for development of healthy plants and crops with improved yields, appearance and flavor.

David Long, Company President, said: "The superior AOP organic fertilizer addresses a crucial problem by providing a realistic solution. In order to increase world food production in a sustainable manner, farmers will need to use the right fertilizer at the right rate, the right time and the right place. The AOP product is the best option, and this bodes well for the future."
