RENO, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2014) - Itronics Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ITRO) reported today its first quarter 2014 GOLD'n GRO fertilizer sales at $466,000, approximately even with 2013 first quarter GOLD'n GRO fertilizer sales at $469,000.
"This is excellent news since the central valley of California, the main market area for GOLD'n GRO fertilizers, remains suffering from severe drought and increased irrigation water restrictions. Predictions were that 2014 crops and fertilizer sales would decrease significantly," said Dr. John Whitney, Itronics President.
"Our current outlook, assuming weather in 2014 and related agricultural cropping patterns in our California markets are similar to 2013, is that sales should be stable," said Dr. Whitney. "There could be an increase if certain new projects that are underway, including the recent introduction of GOLD'n GRO Valu-Paks for consumers on Amazon.com as detailed in three recent news releases, begin to produce results."
