IONE, Calif., June 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Purebase Corporation (OTCQB: PUBC), is pleased to report the 2017 Shade Advantage (WP) Protectant Season has begun in Arizona and California.
The last four weeks, Purebase has shipped and technically supported distributors to achieve a successful market insertion for the first selling season of Purebase Shade Advantage (WP) throughout Western Arizona and Southern California on citrus, mangos, onions, and olive crops. This market insertion strategy progresses north into Oregon, Washington State anticipating distributors demands. Likewise, in the following weeks the Purebase team will visit Idaho and Colorado distributors, which represent an estimated combined total of 773,851 cultivated acres.
This last week, applications and distribution of Purebase Shade Advantage (WP) have also begun in the San Juaquin and Sacramento Valleys on walnuts, olives and citrus. Simultaneously, Purebase is ramping up distribution operations for applications on cherries throughout the San Juaquin Valley and Bakersfield California.
Robert Hurtado, VP of Purebase Ag. Products Research and Development states, that "we are expecting an unusually warm summer this season and Purebase Shade Advantage WP can help mitigate heat induced stress to these valuable crops and new orchards and vineyards being established." Purebase Shade Advantage (WP) protects these crops by absorbing and diffusing harmful ultraviolet and infrared radiation light that scalds fruits and nuts and affects plant physiology and DNA transfer for next year crops.
