RENO, NV--(Marketwired - October 24, 2016) - Itronics Inc. (OTC PINK: ITRO) reported today its third quarter 2016 GOLD'n GRO fertilizer sales were up 17 percent compared to the prior year period.
The sales increase in the third quarter is partially a result of new application development by the Company's fertilizer distributor in California. Trucking delays prevented deliveries of additional orders that would have increased third quarter sales almost twenty percent more compared to the prior year. These deliveries will be reported in the fourth quarter.
The Company's GOLD'n GRO fertilizers are strongly supported by our distributor's retail branches that have been long term sellers of the fertilizers. They are profitable for both the distributor and its grower customers due to their ability to increase micronutrient uptake by the crops, especially tree crops. Increased micronutrient uptake by the plants from the soil, including trees and vines, produces meaningful improvement in crop quality and yield.
