MONTREAL, Quebec, Canada – Earth Alive Clean Technologies Inc. (CSE: EAC) (“Earth Alive” or the “Company”), a leading Canadian clean-tech company that develops and manufactures state-of-the-art microbial technology-based products, is pleased to announce that it has signed a distribution agreement with Hawthorne Canada Limited, a subsidiary of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, for the sale of Dr. Marijane Root Probiotic in Canada.
Earth Alive launched the Dr Marijane brand in April 2017 following changes to Canada’s cannabis laws. Scientific testing and validation have shown impressive increase in growth and productivity of cannabis plants, with yields improving up to 28%. Dr. Marijane is designed to allow growers to manage biological activity in their growing substrates, increasing nutrient availability and efficiency.
Michael Warren, CEO for Earth Alive, stated: “When changes in the Canadian legal system were announced, our agriculture group decided to serve cannabis and hemp producers with the same Soil First approach we have for any of the other 50 crops we work with. The biological component in different growing substrates is one of the most overlooked variables in plant production, and Dr Marijane is able to help growers take control of this important factor.”
Warren continued, “From a sales perspective Hawthorne Gardening presents a strong opportunity for us, offering an extensive and efficient distribution network within Canada with twelve seasoned sales specialists that understand the many channels available representing 500 retailers to deliver Dr Marijane into this market. We are looking forward to moving forward in this mutually beneficial partnership.”
