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."
