In conjunction with our partner Agribiotechnologia de Costa Rica, (“ACR”) we intend to produce hemp seedlings with novel genetics “customized” to specific microclimates in both North and South America and to subsequently create an international export business for such seedlings.
Over time, we expect to further develop a major hemp cultivation and full-scale processing and manufacturing effort within a “Free Trade Zone” in Costa Rica. In addition to roughly 15,000 acres currently under its management, our partner ACR which has a 35-year history, maintains roughly 90,000 square feet of experimental greenhouse and a 20,000 square foot state-of-the-art agricultural research laboratory. ACR can today produce over 15 million seedlings per year and is recognized as the leading company in the propagation and export of seedlings in Latin America. ACR is led by Oscar Arias, one of the most respected and experienced agricultural biotechnologist in the region. ACR has extensive experience (over 250 protocols) in the breeding selection and propagation of high-value crops such as bananas, pineapples, coffee, sugar cane, vanilla, forest species, ornamental plants, orchids, among other energy crops.
Our experience in developing and managing projects total more than 15,000 acres in various agro-industrial export activities allows us to understand the needs and requirements of our customers.
Research and development of protocols for in vitro propagation techniques and other commercial propagation of plants
• Development of plant propagation systems commercially high quality using techniques in vitro and ex vitro
• Quality, safety and efficiency in our processes, by providing our customers materials under strict quality planting
schedules and deliveries
Why micro propagation?
These techniques allow the commercial cloning of plants with superior features and free of virus yields that allow for: uniformity, genetic fitness , cleaning pest and disease/virus, greater vigor, rejuvenation of tissue , rapid growth and commercial scaling.
Development and Project Management Agroindustriales
We have a team of professionals and a vast network of contacts, providing integrated solutions to industrial projects. Since its inception Agribio focused and developed projects in the field of Agribusiness nationally and internationally such as Forestry Production, Projects Pineapple and Banana, production and industrialization of juices and pulps (Orange , Pineapple, Passion Fruit, etc), production and export of Ornamental Plants.
