CannabisNewsBreaks – Advanced Container Technologies Inc.’s (ACTX) GrowPods Allow Farmers to Spice It Up

Advanced Container Technologies (OTC: ACTX) offers unique controlled environment farms, GrowPods, which can allow growers to start cultivating in-demand, high-margin specialty herbs and spices. The U.S. market for fresh culinary herbs is growing. According to the U.S. Agency for International Development, popularity of leafy plants such as basil, cilantro and parsley that add flavor, aroma or garnish, increased 10% to 12% annually from 2004 to 2014 and has continued to climb. However, domestic field production does not meet demand, resulting in importation of nearly $300 million worth of leafy plants each year. In addition, domestically produced and imported goods face mounting challenges, such as diseases, droughts and floods, foodborne illnesses, environmental impact and supply chain disruptions. “GrowPods allow farmers to cultivate high-margin, in-demand herbs, year-round, with reduced resource consumption and rapid harvest times,” said Doug Heldoorn, CEO of ACTX. “These highly efficient systems can not only provide farmers the ability to quickly enter new markets but can also provide a year-round income stream.”
