You may wish to check the facts on this as I posted before, Liquid Gold is a Canadian Company that has the rights to this name, the USA company buying it decided to come up with their own product, I would check their references before I hang my hat, there are a lot of products on the market, Organic and otherwise that simply do not work.

I know the guys from Environmental Factor and I am aware of the email sent by the USA company as I sent it on for them to deal with, I will stick with Liquid Gold as I know it works and works well.

I contacted Environmental Factor about Liquid Gold and they directed me to the company in the US that carrues their product. They told me that Gluten8 is LiquiGold and the specs seem the same.

I contacted them the same day Environmental Factor sent me their link.

Great to hear, There was an issue so I guess it has been settled as I haven't talked to my contact at Environmental Factor since September as that was our last order of last season. They are super people to deal with.

From what I'm finding out, here in Ohio anyways, I need to be licensed to use any liquid product. One of the local suppliers in my area said they aren't even allowed to sell it to someone without a license. However, I can use dry product without an issue. If anyone knows different for my area please correct me but thats what I'm being told.

We call the product in the US Gluten-8, it is under our product page. We have a new option this year which is 55 gallon drums. I have attached our brochure on Gluten-8 and a general seasonal outline, the second page has application and mixing rates>>
We begin production right after the first of the year, we do have spring pre order discounts for orders placed by the end of the month>>

Spoke with the owner of the Canadian Company that holds the patents to this, here is their reply.

http://www.ictorganics.com/index.cfm...ID/9/index.htm they currently the only legit US distributor. Anyone else is a copy cat and not endorsed or approved by us for now!

From what I read about Gluten-8, it has a 1:3 mix ratio (1 quart Gluten-8 to 3 quarts of water), how would I apply that with the hose end sprayer? If I put the mixed solution in the sprayer wouldn't it become more diluted spraying it with more water?

I'm looking to expand and I feel like this is something that I can do, I'm just trying to see how I can fit it in my budget as well as my setup.
