Vancouver British Columbia / February 23, 2021 – AgraFlora Organics International Inc. (“AgraFlora” or the “Company”) (CSE: AGRA) (Frankfurt: PU31) (OTCPK: AGFAF) is pleased to provide further detail regarding initial sales and revenue for its cannabis production facility, Propagation Services Canada Inc., the Company’s flagship cultivation asset located in Delta, British Columbia (“PSC”).
Propagation Services Canada (PSC) continues its momentum towards its first commercial sales and is expected to report initial revenue Summer 2021. The first commercial crop for commercial sale will include 3 proprietary strains Mimosa 37, Kosher Kush and Gelato. These strains have been selected for their strong demand in Canada’s dried flower market, as well as their growing attributes within the greenhouse environment which align with their low cost high-THC cannabis attributes. PSC has gathered valuable data from crops grown to date and continues to develop and strategize to further aid in its positioning as a leader in low cost product.
“We have made recent modifications to existing infrastructure which has allowed us to significantly increase our drying capacity and increase revenue for summer 2021” Ruben Houweling, general manager stated. Recent modifications and calibrations provided by an international partner to their existing drying rooms have allowed PSC to almost double anticipated drying capacity for a minimal investment.
PSC will be optimizing its propagation operations by fine-tuning its climate strategy to produce healthy, rooted cuttings more quickly with high success rate monitoring irrigation mixtures to produce custom nutrient formulations for each stage of plant growth. By developing novel production strategies PSC can maximize yield per square meter with minimal labour costs leveraging best growing practices and experience in vegetable cultivations and applying to them to their cannabis operation.
