GrowGeneration Signs Distribution Agreement with Groundwork BioAg
Expands nutrient and additive portfolio to include leading mycorrhizal inoculant DYNOMYCO via online superstore and retail locations
Denver, CO, and Mazor, Israel – October 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – GrowGeneration Corp. (NASDAQ: GRWG, “GrowGen”) the nation’s largest chain of specialty hydroponic and organic garden centers, and Groundwork BioAg, a global bio-agriculture company, today announced that they have entered into a distribution agreement to offer DYNOMYCO®, a unique brand of highly-concentrated mycorrhizal inoculants specifically formulated for cannabis, to hydroponic and organic growers across the U.S. Representing two of the fastest growing segments in agriculture – cannabis and biologicals – the distribution agreement brings together GrowGen’s commercial reach and marketing prowess with Groundwork BioAg’s innovative and highly-effective mycorrhizal inoculants.
DYNOMYCO has exhibited strong efficacy in cannabis, with yield increases of 10%-45%, as well as increased cannabinoid content. DYNOMYCO also reduces dependency on phosphorus fertilizer, improves nutrient uptake, and reduces transplantation shock. Mycorrhizae are a cornerstone of regenerative agriculture best practices, and a key to maintaining plant root health in horticulture.
“Product portfolio expansion has become a strategic priority for GrowGen, and a key component of our long-term revenue generation plan,” said Paul Rutenis, GrowGen’s Chief Merchant Officer. “We are proud to bring Groundwork BioAg’s unique technologies and proprietary mycorrhizal products to GrowGen and our family of growers who are on the leading edge of farm management practices to produce the highest quality plants.”
Following 30 years of research and product development, DYNOMYCO is highly-concentrated and formulated for convenient application and efficacy on cannabis plants and is suitable for individual growers and large commercial farms alike. The product is suitable for organic cultivation and is certified by Clean Green, Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), and California Department of Food and Agriculture Organic Input Material Program (CDFA-OIM).
“Through our partnership with GrowGen, one of the most respected names in hydroponic and organic gardening, we are able to ensure growers have access to our unique formulation of mycorrhizal inoculants for maximum performance,” said Dan Grotsky, Co-Founder and Chief Growth Officer of Groundwork BioAg, and DYNOMYCO’s General Manager. “DYNOMYCO continues to gain tremendous momentum among cannabis growers. Through this strategic partnership, we can ensure growers across the nation have easy access to a product they love from a retailer they trust.”
Starting in October 2021, growers will be able to purchase DYNOMYCO directly from GrowGen’s 62 retail hydroponic and organic garden centers or on GrowGeneration’s online superstore: www.growgeneration.com.
