SPRINGFIELD, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 09/07/10 -- Talisman Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TMHO) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a development agreement with Pranaceuticals, LLC ('Pranaceuticals') to utilize Pranaceuticals cutting edge technologies to enhance Advanced Organics Products Worldwide ('AOP') organic fish fertilizer.
Pranaceuticals' revolutionary technology could enable AOP's organic fertilizer to increase its effectiveness a minimum fourfold thereby driving the overall profitability of the product exponentially higher, making AOP and Talisman substantially more profitable, and increasing shareholder value in the process.
Recent crop disasters serve to underscore the increasingly serious global problem of food production. For example, Canada has already lost an estimated $3 billion worth of crops to flooding, Australia expects a bothersome plague of locusts to hatch soon, and wild fires in Russia are crippling wheat production with the crop yield expected to plummet by over 80%. In fact Russia has postponed any export sales of wheat for the next 2 crop seasons, summer 2010 and the winter wheat crop of 2011.
These situations illustrate and foretell an alarming trend -- a global crisis where we won't be able to provide enough food for a growing population. This gigantic problem has tremendous ramifications for the global economy.
Meanwhile, corn, wheat and soybean prices are experiencing rapid price acceleration. By 2050, the global population will hit nine billion. The consequence of this is that we'll have to produce more food in the next 50 years than the past 10,000 combined.
That wouldn't be a problem if we could actually produce more food. But that's not the case. Only about 4.7% of the world's land presently has crops, only 13.3% is considered arable and of that 40% is 'seriously degraded' due to climate changes, erosion and over-harvesting.
Plus, in our present situation and using available technology, we have stretched production about as far as it will go.
So, what's the solution?
The answer must come from innovative businesses. Advanced Organic Products Worldwide (AOP), a subsidiary of Talisman Holdings, Inc., is stepping up and addressing this critical problem. One thing is clear: fertilizer is an essential and necessary ingredient in any discussion of increased food production.
AOP, with its technology partner, has already created a revolutionary all natural and organic liquid fish fertilizer which is odorless and superior to anything presently on the market.
Now it is taking steps to further enhance that dynamic product and take it to unprecedented levels. The Talisman/AOP agreement with Pranaceuticals, a cutting edge research and scientific development corporation, focused on the creation and enhancement of products that address the wellness of the planet and its inhabitants will propel AOP to the forefront of this crucial arena.
Pranaceuticals has developed far reaching proprietary applications to energize and restructure various products at small costs. In AOP's case, the preliminary tests are extremely promising and would result in added energy patterns, which would increase efficiency levels and result in astounding increased crop production. Preliminary application and test results to date point to a high probability of success.
The possibility of success must be measured and gauged by the credentials and past achievements of the players. In this regard, Pranaceuticals is without equal. The team of company scientists and researchers is headed by a world respected and recognized doctor, who has published four books and over 500 items, and has 50 patents. He was appointed to a Presidential Science and Technology Advisory Committee by President Carter, and currently serves the Obama administration in the area of energy and health care. He is currently a member of the Special Committee for New Technologies and the Environment of the United Nations, and is the recipient of many scientific awards. He also serves as a consultant to numerous corporations and government agencies and belongs to many business and professional organizations, including serving on the Board of a leading medical publication.
This exciting breakthrough technology has enormous and far reaching ramifications. It would truly alter the existing fertilizer landscape. The past success and achievements of the Pranaceuticals management, which include development of a number of successful projects, bodes well for a successful conclusion, and AOP's future growth.
David Long, Talisman President, said, 'We are pleased beyond words to be in partnership with the scientific team from Pranaceuticals. A business that can address increased farm yields is bound to attract more and more attention. Our Company is positioned to become of increasing interest to the investment community. With this team on our side, we will achieve our targeted goal of becoming the leader in the gigantic $175 billion fertilizer marketplace.'
