July 18, 2018 - The planting season of 2018 is complete, as promised AgTech Scientific paid out over $125,000 to the KFHI Farmers. The reactions varied from high fives to tears of joy. Harrison County Judge & KHFI farmer, Alex Barnett stated, "I never thought I would see the day a company would pay the farmer prior to final delivery. We made a commitment to AgTech, the company took it a step further. These new beginnings in hemp farming & cooperation with AgTech signals a great day for all farmers in my opinion."
Mark McElroy, CBO, added, "AgTech Scientific is looking forward to a successful harvest season with further payments to farmers. The AgTech KFHI farm program has been receiving tremendous support and plans are to expand tenfold for 2019."
July 16, 2018 - 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 great farmers, as cooperation on all levels has led to a successful 2018 planting season."
May 14, 2018 - AgTech Scientific is proud to announce the signing of a purchase agreement with Bourbon County for 10 acres plus an additional option of 10 acres with incentives in the Bourbon County Business Park. AgTech Scientific completed the land purchase on February 28, 2018. The first 10 acres will house the company's state of the art 50,000 sq.ft, GMP inspired facility with laboratories, extraction, infusion, formulation, product manufacturing & distribution.
A thorough selection period was completed in May 2018. AgTech Scientific is proud to announce the inclusion of Gray Construction as its build-out partner.
The AgTech BOD added, "The formation of our purchase agreement took some time as Bourbon County did not just sell us land, they also became a valued partner. The choice of Gray Construction became obvious after an exhaustive selection period. We would like to thank everyone involved and look forward to a June 2019 project completion date."
