Converted Organics products suppress disease in trials

A comprehensive scientific review suggests that Converted Organics liquid agricultural fertilizers boost disease suppression characteristics in plants due to the product’s diversity of anti-oxidants and hormones. Each independent study conducted stresses the importance of soil environment, beyond crop growth, to improve the defensive potential of the crop and the potential to use organic amendments to modify the soil environment accordingly.


Through experience, farmers and turf specialists have known for years that Converted Organics liquid agricultural products have produced a high level of disease suppression characteristics at a rapid rate, but until recently it was unknown exactly why this was happening. William Torello, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Plant and Soil Sciences at The University of Massachusetts Amherst has found that Converted Organics products contain high levels of both hormones and anti-oxidants, which are uniquely derived from its proprietary High Temperature Liquid Composting (HTLC) system, a proven, state-of-the-art microbial digestion technology, which processes various biodegradable food wastes into dry pellet and liquid concentrate organic fertilizers that help grow healthier food and improve environmental quality.


Torello states, “For years, scientists have researched how plants acquire natural resistance to diseases and pests through exposure and applications of various organic additives, particularly antioxidants. The research we are seeing explicitly shows that the addition of organic additives to soil significantly increase chemicals like salicylic acid, which signals plants to create more anti-disease proteins, making plants less susceptible.”
