A new report produced by Food Democracy Now and the Detox Project found “extremely high levels” of glyphosate residues in popular foods, from Cheerios and Ritz Crackers to Kashi cookies. According to the report, glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto‘s Roundup, “is the most heavily used chemical weedkiller in food and agricultural production in human history.” http://inhabitat.com/glyphosate-found-in-cheerios-kashi-cookies-and-other-popular-food-items/                         by Lacy Cooke  of inhabitat

About Gal-XeONETM Thriving Through Continuous Nutrient Delivery

Plants thrive best and remain healthiest when supplied with continuous nutrition. GAL-XeONE™ is a controlled-release fertilizer with a new, advanced polymer coating technology. It delivers optimal nutrients to the plant at a pace that matches a plant’s uptake requirements. GAL-XeONE fertilizer provides gradual release of plant nutrients to match a plant’s growth cycle as needed. It improves efficiency, limits plant damage and reduces nutrient loss.


EFFICIENT DELIVERY: GAL-XEONE™ is a controlled-release fertilizer with a patented polymer coating technology that delivers nutrients to the plant at the right rate to match a plant’s uptake needs.

EXTENDED RELEASE: Plants are healthiest with constant nutrition over an extended period. GAL-XEONE technology allows consistent, predictable delivery of plant nutrients.

EXACTING TECHNOLOGY: The patented GAL-XEONE coating uses technology developed with support from NASA to allow water to enter the prill then carry the nutrient solution out through a precise, semi-permeable membrane.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY: Delivering just the right amount of nutrients to match the pace of plant growth is a 4R Nutrient Stewardship® best practice and an efficient use of resources.
