Agrify and Front Range Biosciences Announce Partnership to Develop Next Generation Cultivation and Genetics Solution
Research and development partnership will combine Agrify’s cutting-edge indoor agriculture cultivation solutions with Front Range Biosciences’ expertise in creating unique cannabis and hemp cultivars
BURLINGTON, Mass., May 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Agrify Corporation (NasdaqCM:AGFY) (“Agrify” or the “Company”), a developer of highly advanced and proprietary precision hardware and software cultivation
solutions for the indoor agriculture marketplace, and Front
Range Biosciences ("FRB"), a cannabis and hemp genetics platform company that leverages next generation breeding technology and research and development (R&D) capabilities, today
announced a signed definitive agreement to push the boundaries of cannabis and hemp genetics via the application and incorporation of technology to the genetic and cultivation processes.
The R&D partnership will be based in California and Colorado, including the installation of Agrify Vertical Farming Units (“VFUs”) at FRB’s indoor breeding facilities. The primary focus of the program will be optimizing cannabis and hemp cultivation environments to drive the best performance from different genetic cultivars to achieve maximum yield, consistency, and terpene output with minimum variance in cannabinoid levels. The program will focus on unlocking the cannabis derived product potential in both adult use and medical markets by optimizing terpene and cannabinoid combinations.
“Combining our expertise in developing optimized controlled cultivation environments through our proprietary hardware and software technology solutions with FRB’s ability to create second-to-none unique cannabis and hemp strains has the potential to transform the market,” said Raymond Chang, Chief Executive Officer of Agrify. “This partnership will bring together Agrify’s granularly controlled cultivation environments and next-level data analytics with FRB’s intentionally created genetics and cutting-edge breeding expertise to form what we believe will be the foundation of the next generation of consumer products with higher levels of consistency and increased concentrations of valuable phytochemicals. We are thrilled to be collaborating with FRB on this initiative and commencing this exciting work together.”
