Itronics fertilizer sales up 23% with end of drought

RENO — In the first five months of 2017, GOLD'n GRO fertilizer sales are up 23 percent compared to the same period in 2016, according to a press release from Reno-based Itronics Inc.

Itronics is a green technology development company that produces the zinc fertilizers and silver products from waste sources.

The fertilizer sales improvement confirms both the end of the drought in California, where the bulk of the fertilizers are sold, and that demand for GOLD'n GRO zinc fertilizers continues to increase, the report said.

"The company sales are returning to levels not seen since the drought in California started five years ago," Dr. John Whitney, Itronics president, said. "We are now expecting that sales will continue at higher levels and growth in the customer base will resume."

GOLD'n GRO fertilizers provide improved nutrient uptake by the crops so that smaller quantities can be used compared to competing fertilizers. Over the years field testing has also demonstrated meaningful crop yield improvement. Major crops using the GOLD’n GRO fertilizers include almonds, grapes, cotton, tomatoes and silage corn for dairy cows.

"Improvements in yield and in environmental compatibility are attractive to our distributor and its customers," said Dr. John Whitney, Itronics President. "GOLD'n GRO is a truly 'green' line of fertilizers manufactured from spent, detoxified, photographic liquid waste," Whitney said.
