Verity Corp in Organic and Non-GMO Report Article on "Ag Experts Helping Farmers Switch to Non-GMO Sustainable Production"

Market Trends Point to Growth in Non-GMO Food Production

SIOUX FALLS, SD -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Verity Corp (OTCQB: VRTY) (BERLIN: A2Q) (http://www.veritycorp.com), an agricultural services company offering food producers innovative products and services which improves soil and crop health through the use of environmentally-friendly crop inputs including proprietary soil media, essential trace elements and conventional non-GMO seeds, was highlighted in an article in Organic and non-GMO Report

The article discussed how more farmers were seeing the disadvantages with growing GMO crops and now are interested in producing food without GMO. Many of the expected benefits of using GMO have not panned out in the field with very real drawbacks such as increases in the need for water and fertilizer. Crop experts like Verity Farms, a subsidiary of Verity Corp, emphasize enhancing soil fertility. The article also notes, "The crop experts recommend reducing chemical fertilizers and pesticides and increasing sustainable practices such as crop rotations and cover crops to reduce weed and insect problems."

The Organic and Non-GMO Report mentioned, "Our concept is just to raise good food," says Kalmolvathin, whose company was featured in an article in the New York Times a few months ago. "We try to take inputs out and go back to the seed and then to the soil."

Verity's comprehensive portfolio of earth friendly products include:

  • Soil Nutrients
  • Field Fertilizers
  • Lawn, Turf and Garden Fertilizers
  • Biological Enhancers
  • Aquaculture Products
  • Livestock Products
  • Seed
  • Water Revitalization Units

Richard Kamolvathin, President and CEO of Verity Corp, said, "We are gratified to be included in Organic and Non-GMO Report's article on non-GMO agriculture experts. There has been a definite shift in farmers' interest in returning to conventional/non-GMO food production as consumer and farmer concerns have mounted and GMO labeling campaigns have been launched.

"With Vermont recently passing the first GMO labeling law in the United States and Whole Foods requiring GMO labeling by their vendors by 2018, we expect our company to expand dramatically to meet this rapidly growing demand for transitioning to non-GMO and sustainable farming. Currently, Verity operates out of three facilities in South Dakota, Iowa and Georgia and has customers in over 35 states," Kalmolvathin continued.

Kalmolvathin concluded, "Verity introduced a number of proprietary products at the beginning of the year which are being well received by the market place. We believe this trend towards sustainable agriculture will be a major catalyst for the resurgence of the family farm which has been a long held quest of Verity and its founders."
