Vancouver, British Columbia, April 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Future Farm Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “Future Farm”) (CSE: FFT) (OTCQB: FFRMF) is pleased to announce that it has begun preparations for the propagation of its 2019 hemp-for-wellness crop in Belfast, Maine. The Company will be growing its Cherry Wine cultivar over 100 acres of farmland in Hersey, Maine, but is first propagating the plants indoors at the Belfast facility.
Future Farm expects to harvest over 120,000 pounds of biomass this season, with each plant producing approximately one pound of biomass. Planting on 100 acres requires a tremendous amount of planning to align labor, care for the plants at each stage, preparation of the field, and transplanting of the seedlings. Future Farm is planning to have the biomass from its Maine operations processed into full spectrum hemp oil, CBD distillate and CBD isolate for sale to manufacturers of products using those valuable ingredients. Building on its ongoing successful seed business, the Company projects that it will produce over two million hemp seeds in 2019, almost double the production of its 2018 inaugural season. This plan positions Future Farm to be among the largest suppliers of high-quality hemp seed in the Northeast United States.
“We have been focused on caring for the seeds we are about to grow since we harvested them in 2018 because they have outstanding genetics that provide high propagation rates and high CBD content,” comments Zachary Lapan, General Manager of Future Farm Maine. He continues, "It's always exciting for me, as a farmer and a manager, to see that first sprout.”
