MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Feb. 22, 2017) - Earth Alive Clean Technologies Inc. (CSE:EAC)(CSE:EAC.CN) ("Earth Alive" or the "Company"), a leading Canadian Clean-Tech company, developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art microbial technology-based products for sustainable agriculture and mining, is pleased to announce it has begun shipping the Company's patent-pending biofertilizer and biostimulant product, Soil Activator™, to multiple licensed producers of medical marijuana in Canada for trials. These licensed marijuana producers will be conducting their own independent trials to validate Earth Alive's own trials (see press release dated May 11, 2015).
Earth Alive's Soil Activator™ is a patent-pending, fully CFIA registered and Ecocert certified organic, non-crop specific, microbial biofertilizer designed to produce more vigorous plants and higher yields by improving nutrient availability in the soil.
Based on the results of previous third-party testing by a licensed medical marijuana grower, plants grown with Soil Activator™ produced 28% more than plants grown with standard fertilizer alone
"The cannabis industry is a fast growing industry in various parts of the world," stated David Gilmour, CEO of Earth Alive. "The emergence of the global medical marijuana field, as well as Health Canada's forecasts for that market to reach $1.3 billion in annual sales by 2024, represents a significant business opportunity for Earth Alive and its biofertilizer technology. Because Soil Activator™ is certified organic, and has already proven to generate higher and better yields in previous cannabis applications, our microbial technology is attracting increased interest from growers who are focused on cultivating organically certified marijuana strains, of high and consistent quality."
