Columbia, MD, August 30, 2007 --/WORLD-WIRE/-- ICT Organics LLC, a leader in the transition to organic lawn care, announced the introduction of a new and innovative organic lawn care product. “This is a ground-breaking way to manage turf organically,” said Bill Skerrett, President and CEO of ICT Organics. “Scientists have been studying the symbiotic relationships between plants and soil bacteria for over 100 years, it has not been until recently that we have been able to understand which soil bacteria work with which plants to promote health and growth in, this case, turf grasses.”

“This product line enables lawn and landscape professionals to transition to organic lawn care instantly. 1 2 3 Instant Compost Tea is safe, cost effective and easy to use,” said Bill Skerrett, “the product addresses many of the issues business owners have, the increase in productivity is amazing and it allows lawn and landscape companies to expand their business into organic, which is very timely.” “One quart treats over 2 acres which makes it very cost effective, although we do recommend doubling the treatment rate at first for biologically deficient soils.” said Bill “The preliminary results back from the over-seeding and hydro-seeding applications are excellent.”

This unique product is based on turf specific Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR). PGPR supply the biology to the plant, soil and root system that profoundly affect the plant in relation to nutrition, development and health. The turf specific PGPR colonize the soil and trigger a symbiotic relationship that enhance nutritional up take for grasses, which means greener healthier lawns.

ICT Organics develops proprietary, environmentally sustainable, naturally occurring nutrients and biology for turf grasses. 1 2 3 Instant Compost Tea provides the biology and micro/macro nutrients to the grass dramatically reducing the use of inorganic or synthetic fertilizers.

“We have worked very closely with Dr. Elaine Ingham’s Company, the Soil Food Web (SFI), on testing. The New York SFI office has done a wonderful job of helping us get the product to where it is today” Bill Skerrett said “Everything is tested by SFI, we are awaiting an Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) allowed status and USDA National Organic Program (NOP) approval. The results are outstanding from the field; the certifications, tests and field trials reveal just how powerful this product is.”
