GEO™-PURTEC is a patent-pending vegetative growth product like GEO™-VEG, except that it’s specially designed to comply with Massachusetts law regarding heavy metal uptake for organic farming, allowing Massachusetts cultivators and farmers to achieve the results our products provide while still maintaining their desired labelling in that state.
In order to grow well, all plants require nitrogen and magnesium in the form of nitrate ions and magnesium ions. Nitrogen ions are necessary to create amino acids and thus proteins, and magnesium ions are needed to make chlorophyll. Plants deficient in these elements turn yellowish and sickly.
Unfortunately, all fertilizers on the market that provide these substances also include heavy metals, even ones labelled organic. This is challenge for Massachusetts organic cultivators, who have to comply with strict regulation on heavy metal uptake in their plants.
GEO™-PURTEC is the only organic amendment on the market that meets the Massachusetts heavy metal standards and prevents uptake in crops where it’s used.
The result of using this product then is that your plants don’t contain those levels of trace heavy metals. This can be especially desirable for plants that go on to become medicinal products or food products, or plants that absorb nutrients from the soil at higher rates.
So, GEO™-PURTEC is ideal for Massachusetts cultivators who want to boost plant growth but still qualify for organic labelling in the Bay State.
