A&L Biological Inc. receives registration for bio-stimulant to manage transplant stress

A&L Biological Inc., a subsidiary of A&L Canada Laboratories Inc., is pleased to announce they have been granted registration from the Canadian Food and Inspection Agency (CFIA) for AL-Bio 7; a new bio-stimulant formulation. This product improves soil and plant health by harnessing the beneficial properties of the bacterial strain AL-336. The registration is effective October 2021. ‘AL-Bio 7’ is designed to stimulate plant and root growth, improve stress resistance, and increase crop yield in high value specialty crops. Growers of a wide variety of fruit and vegetable crops, greenhouse and field cannabis are looking for solutions to reduce costs and increase yields that can easily be incorporated into their current production practices.

A&L’s greenhouse and field trials have shown significant improvement in plant vigour, root development, bio-mass and yield for plants in a transplant setting. Transplant stress can have a damaging effect on early establishment of crops. This bio-stimulant has demonstrated the ability to overcome this “shock” event and provide for improved crop establishment and yield. “We are thrilled to announce that A&L’s first bio-stimulant submitted to the CFIA has be registered,” said Rob Field, VP Business Development and Marketing for A&L Biological. “We listened to the needs of our clients and worked with them to develop this valuable and sustainable bio-based solution for fruits and vegetables.” “Our research has led us to commercialization of these new technologies and are excited to be introducing our first products to market next year,” said Nevin McDougall, President and Chief Commercial Officer for A&L Canada Laboratories. “We will be following through with international registrations and launches in the next phase of each product.” Full commercialization of ‘AL-Bio 7’ Canada is being planned for March 2022.
