The original Biomarker was developed by MCG BioComposites LLC of Cedar Rapids, Iowa for a garden club in Des Moines. When MCG introduced the product to us we were intrigued, but we knew that a good marking system was needed to make the product more useful. After researching many labeling methods we came across a truly weatherproof label that was printable with a laser printer, or writable with a permanent marker. The labels are pressure sensitive, so they are easy to remove when they do start to wear out. They remain in place and readable through all kinds of weather, but when it's time to peel them off, they don't leave a residue. You just clean off the marker and apply another label.
I've trialed these markers and weatherproof labels for two full seasons in my garden. I really like them because they are easy to read, and the marking does not fade away. The labels stay on, and you can read them after exposure to sun, rain and snow. I also find the markers useful as plant stakes for propping up smaller plants, and I use them as surveying stakes when laying out plant and seed spacings. My son Geoff reports excellent results with BioMarkers from his garden in Austin, Texas. He's gone through multiple crop changes and the markers show no signs of wearing out. We are getting good feedback from gardeners around the country for our BioMarker plant marking system and we are happy to be able to offer them to our customers.
