Vegalab US Adds Myco BioBoost To Its Line of Soil Inoculants

(Minden, NV) – HPC Acquisitions, Inc. (OTCQB: HPCQ) DBA Vegalab US, a biotech company focused on delivering biological pesticides and natural fertilizers using its proprietary micronization and nanotechnology, announced that it has added Myco BioBoost, a highly concentrated and customizable mycorrhizal fungus soil inoculant, to its product line.

Myco BioBoost's proprietary water-soluble mycorrhizae are manufactured in powder form boasting 82 propagules per gram, one of the highest concentrations of propagules in the market for a solid product. The mycorrhizae are obtained in vitro, which guarantees an exact spore count.  In addition, the process is completely sterile; problems of contamination with other organisms are eliminated.

Mycorrhizae symbiotically bond to the roots of a plant, growing on and expanding the root's overall surface area. This increases the root system's ability to absorb water and nutrients. The protective coating of beneficial fungi shields the root zone from pathogens and feeds off of the starch exudates excreted from the plant's roots. In exchange, the mycorrhizal colony provides a bio-available phosphorus plant food.

Vegalab's eco-compatible fungi can be customized by crop or country, which ensures that the selected fungus is adapted to local environmental conditions. Myco BioBoost has received EPA registration and is available for purchase.

Vegalab US Boosts Concentration of Spider Mite Control by 5x with Improved Formulation

MINDEN, NV – Today, HPC Acquisitions Inc. (OTCQB: HPCQ) DBA Vegalab US (“Vegalab US”) launched the improved formulation of its Spider Mite Control. Spider Mite Control is a biological pesticide that targets spider mites, pests known to feed on several hundred species of plants.  These pests cause mottled leaves and often destroy the entire plant at a rapid speed.

Spider Mite Control is highly effective by attacking spider mites in two different ways. It blocks the breathing holes of spider mites, causing them to die from suffocation. It also causes reproductive disruption among female spider mites; this leads to infertility, eggs that do not hatch, or mites that do not develop to an adult stage.

 The improved formulation calls for a dilution rate of 1:500-1:1000 (depending on level of infestation), while the old formulation recommended a dilution rate of 1:100. With 5x the original concentration, the improved Spider Mite Control drastically lowers the amount of product needed, and therefore cost, per application. As with the original formula, zero pesticide residue is left on the plants.

The improved Spider Mite Control formulation and its benefits were made possible by using proprietary nanotechnology and advanced adjuvants. The product is a liquid formulation that is applied as a foliar spray to plants. It is EPA-approved under FIFRA Section 25(b) as a minimum risk pesticide.

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA – HPC Acquisitions Inc. (HPCQ) DBA Vegalab US (“Vegalab US”), has today announced the completion of its first round private placement of 1,000,000 shares of its common stock at $0.50 per share, as well as its initial sales results from the distribution of all-natural, sustainable agricultural products.

In April 2016, the first month of marketing, Vegalab US achieved over $450,000 of sales and believes that orders will continue to increase steadily.

“The scale of success you see from our first month of marketing supports our strong belief that there is a significant appetite in the United States for all-natural products that make a positive difference, without depleting the earth’s resources.
