Victor Industries Put to the Test by Renowned Chinese College
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 14, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- The internationally-known Hangzhou Vocational Training College (HVTC) with long-standing relationships with some of the most successful large scale private horticultural and agricultural enterprises on the mainland has submitted a testing regime to Victor Industries (OCTBB:VICI) that will test the effectiveness of its products on over 100 plant genera. Of special interest to HVTC is our product, EnviroTurf. Tens of square miles of Beijing will be put under sod and turf for the 2008 Olympics. Concurrently, Bejing's clean water supply is under stress,and the build up of nitrates and phosphates primarily from fertilizer residue are increasingly evident in the water table of that great city. HVTC has expressed special interest in Victor's claim that EnviroTurf can effectively reduce water consumption by 50% and the need to fertilize by some 80%. Of interest also is a recently referenced, peer reviewed paper authored by Dr. Fredrick A. Mumpton, an acknowledged expert on zeolitic minerals, that reports in supervised scientific tests rice production showed increases of as much as 60% with the inclusion of the principal mineral in our product Envirolizer.
