We’re proud to present GEO™-PURTEC, a vegetative growth product specially designed for the organics market in Massachusetts. Why Massachusetts? Let us explain.
One of the areas where we’re most excited about the potential impact we can have is organic cultivation and farming. However, to qualify as organic, an operation has to meet a particular set of requirements set by regulatory bodies at both the federal and state levels. These requirements involve restrictions on the practices which are allowed to be used in raising crops.
Most often, they prohibit the use of many different chemical products, including fertilizers, pesticides, and more. Navigating these rules and finding organic products which fulfill those functions but still qualify as acceptable under organic farming guidelines is a complex challenge that organic cultivators and farmers have to face, and this can result in organics being left out when new technologies and products are developed.
In Massachusetts, there’s a particular set of rules for organic farming not found elsewhere, which prevents the use of many soil amendments that would otherwise help cultivators boost plant growth. Unfortunately, this also rules out several of our own products, so we decided to develop one specifically formulated to meet Massachusetts standards, so that cultivators in the Bay State can have equal access to the many benefits of the GEO™ biotech line.
