NEW HAMBURG, ONTARIO-August 11, 2021- Nachurs Alpine Solutions® (NAS), a division of Wilbur-Ellis, announced today that it is aligning its potassium acetate technology Bio-K® to include the ALPINE brand. This change is to provide a consistent presence across North America as well as international markets. Our technology is patent pending in Canada and patented in the United States.
Those familiar with the ALPINE brand may recognize Bio-K as K-Tech®, which has been a trusted and proven technology in the ALPINE brand lineup for the past few years. ALPINE has launched products such as ALPINE F18 Max™ and ALPINE G241-S® within this specialty fertilizer line. Lab tests and field trials have proven potassium acetate to be an effective and safe source of potassium for crop production. Including Bio-K in a sound, well-balanced fertility program will provide the plant with added energy, which will ultimately lead to increased yield. The existing ALPINE product names will not be changing, just the potassium acetate technology branding. We look forward to introducing even more new Bio-K products in the future throughout Canada and beyond.
