Mark McElroy, CBO & Farmer relations added, "AgTech Scientific came to Kentucky with a research plan. The business evolved & came to include a farming component as the company required a guaranteed, quality supply. After only one year of dedication to farming, we have achieved our first goal. The plants are very hearty, possess high CBD & low THC levels, & great yields are expected. Additionally, we need to thank our incredible farmers, as cooperation on all levels has led to a successful 2018 planting season."
