FLOWER MOUND, TX, September 1, 2020 — — Digital Development Partners, Inc. (OTC PINK: DGDM) (which will become Black Bird Potentials Inc.), exclusive distributor of MiteXstream biopesticide and manufacturer of Grizzly Creek Naturals CBD products, today announced that its MiteXstream biopesticide had, in two separate in-the-field private industry tests, continued to display its high level of efficacy on cannabis plants: the rapid elimination of spider mites, molds and mildews. From now until the anticipated December 2020 EPA approval, the company intends to solidify its distribution strategy.
“We continue to believe that MiteXstream will prove to be the game changer we thought it would be from the moment we developed it,” said Fabian Deneault, DGDM’s President. “We cannot wait to begin to get this into the hands of growers and farmers, as soon as EPA certification is secured.”
MiteXstream Biopesticide – Technical Information. MiteXstream is a plant-based formulation, poses no danger to humans or animals and is extremely cost effective per acre. As previously announced, in January 2020, the company filed an application for MiteXstream to be certified as a biopesticide by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The company continues to expect that EPA approval will be obtained in December 2020.
Listed Pests (EPA draft label). MiteXstream biopesticide is defined as a “minimum risk biochemical miticide” that controls gray mold, powdery mildew, downy mildew and mites, Eotetranychus spp., Tetranychus spp. and Panonychus spp., including spider mite, two-spotted mite, pacific mite, willamette mite, citrus rust mite, broad mite and the European red mite.
Listed Crops (EPA draft label). MiteXsteam biopesticide is recommended to be applied as soon as mites are identified on the plants, or when conditions favor mite outbreaks and/or mold and mildew outbreaks, on hemp, hops, coffee, strawberry, soy beans, cucurbits (e.g., squash, pumpkin, zucchini), stone fruit, pome fruit and ornamental plants and nursery stock.
Eradication + Human Safety. MiteXstream destroys spider mites and, importantly, the eggs, almost on contact. And the MiteXstream “super power” is: it can be applied directly to crops through the day of harvest on marijuana and satisfy all marijuana state testing standards, including Oregon, at zero parts per million.
DGDM: Doing Good, Doing More. By developing and bringing to market an extremely safe, yet highly efficacious alternative to traditional pesticides, MiteXstream is an example of how the company is living up to its mission statement, Doing Good, Doing More.
Through its subsidiary Black Bird Potentials, DGDM manufactures and sells CBD products, including CBD Oils, gummies and pet treats, and CBD-infused personal care products, as well as hand sanitizer gel and spray products. In addition, Black Bird is a licensed grower of industrial hemp under the Montana Hemp Pilot Program. Black Bird is the exclusive distributor in the U. S. and Canada for MiteXstream, a plant-based biopesticide effective in the eradication of spider mites, a pest that destroys crops, especially cannabis, hops, coffee and house plants, as well as molds and mildew. EPA approval of MiteXstream is expected in late 2020.
