    Default Unfortunate News

    Some of you may be aware of my enthusiasm over the use of Inocucor Garden Solution, a "plant probiotic" that contains multiple consortia of beneficial microbes, that prevent all sorts of diseases and helps plants grow stronger.

    I have just learned that the manufacturer has shut down the manufacturing facilities in Montreal and their less-than-1-year-old HQ in Denver.

    Yet another victim of corporate greed: Their biological products are fantastic, so they got a bunch of investors to allow expansion. Along the way, they acquired a large-scale fertilizer manufacturer in Canada. The investors apparently decided not to wait for the market for Inocucor to develop, focusing on short-term profits with the fertilizer side, instead.

    That is too bad. It really is difficult to grow a small business without substantial investors who can afford to be patient while the word spreads and the product catches on.

    Too bad someone can't purchase the rights, and make it on a smaller scale. Are there any similar type products, Ray?

    The rights are not for sale. They will resume production, but only if they get truckload volumes.

    The two other products I am aware of right off the top are Quantum Orchid and an old, well-established one, EM-1.

    They are not nearly as broad spectrum though, as the former has two species and the latter, one, compared to a dozen in Inocucor.
