TerraBioGen Announces Cornell University Study Results

TerraBioGen Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TBG), a developer and marketer of proprietary technologies for the production of organic-based, high-value agricultural products from organic wastes, announces the results of recent studies done by Cornell University.

The study conducted by Cornell University's Department of Horticulture was designed to assess the ability of TerraBioGen's liquid LC200, applied at several rates and intervals, to reduce golf fairway turf nutrient requirements. Standard fertilizer inputs were applied at 100, 75, 50 and 25 percent of normal rates required to produce acceptable quality turf. LC200 was applied at three rates every 7, 14, 28 and 56 days. The study showed a complex interaction between the plant and compounds in LC200, and suggests that normal fertilizer rates can be reduced as much as 75% with moderate rates of LC200 applied once every two months during the growing season. Not only does this enhance economic performance, the reduction of nutrient loading into the environment offers significant protection of water quality.

Blair Heffelfinger, President and CEO of TerraBioGen, said, "The Cornell study reaffirms previous turf grass research indicating that treatment with TerraBioGen's LC200 will allow for a significant reduction in fertilizer input without noticeably impacting turf quality. This is a win-win situation in that it provides both economic benefits to the grounds keeper and environmental benefits to society as a whole."
