As part of the licensing and marketing agreement between INCOTEC and TJ Technologies, INCOTEC announces that it will be marketing a specially formulated organic version of QuickRoots® to the organic market. QuickRoots is a foundational, microbial, seed inoculant developed by TJ Technologies and it has proven in field trials to increase yield. QuickRoots Organic ST is specially formulated for the organic market.
INCOTEC’s quality coatings will act as carrier for TJ Technologies’ QuickRoots Organic ST. Seed application will be carried out using INCOTEC’s innovative seed coating technology. This yield-improving product will be offered by INCOTEC for a wide range of vegetables and field crops worldwide.
QuickRoots Organic ST facilitates a novel enzymatic process which releases soil nutrients from the soil profile, thereby significantly increasing seedling vigor, root volume and fine root hairs, resulting in increased yields. QuickRoots Organic ST is listed in OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) and certified with MCCO (Monterey County Certified Organics) and will provide value to the organic market.

The patented, combination of live microorganisms in QuickRoots facilitate a novel enzymatic process which releases soil nutrients from the soil profile, thereby enhancing seedling vigor, and increasing uptake of certain nutrients including NPK, which leads to expanded root volume, root mass and fine root hairs, promoting optimal plant growth and maximizing yield potential. QuickRoots ST Organic is now available for the organic market.
