(SARASOTA – 3/11/20 – PRESS RELEASE) As the U.S. legal medical and recreational marijuana market continues to explode with nearly $30 billion in sales projected by 2023, hobby and commercial cannabis growers are searching for safe and effective ways to keep their plants healthy. To support home and commercial cannabis and hemp growers, Florida start-up Sarasota Green Group (SGG) has recently launched a product line of OMRI Listed pest and disease control solutions that help maximize yields.
Grower’s Ally product lines are FIFRA 25(b) exempt and leave zero residual, preventing disease and protecting outdoor grow operations, greenhouses and hydroponic crops during all stages of growth, using safe and natural ingredients like rosemary, clove and peppermint oils and citric acid.
As Sarasota Green Group prepares to sell to growers, hydroponic retailers and garden centers, and directly to consumers through its Amazon storefront, veteran business leader Scott Allshouse has been tapped as SGG’s first chief executive officer. The former CEO of Buddy Fruits has over 20 years of experience in the consumer-packaged goods industry and looks forward to growing the new company.
“Consuming and growing in a healthy manner is becoming more important to today’s recreational and medical cannabis consumer as further research is done on the risks of contamination in products,” Allshouse said. “Sarasota Green Group is on a mission to support cannabis and hemp growers in providing safe, chemical-free products that maximize yields and maintain healthy crops.”
Grower’s Ally products, available in both ready-to-use and concentrate forms, are specifically formulated to control and eliminate the most common pests and problems that cannabis growers face, like spider mites and powdery mildew. Proven effective through extensive testing by independent labs, Spider Mite Control and Fungicide leave behind no residual and can be used up until the day of harvest with no sensory effect on yields.
