Bee Vectoring Technologies International announces its first sales commitment in the Controlled Environment Agriculture market. This key customer is a company in vertical farming with multiple US locations and will be conducting a paid pilot of the BVT system as a crop productivity tool.
“CEA is the future of agriculture, in particular for fresh produce,” said Ian Collinson, Sales Manager at BVT. “Growing crops vertically means we can grow more efficiently with greater yield and can be closer to urban centers where the bulk of fresh produce is consumed. It also means growers are no longer dependent on weather conditions, and therefore can operate 365 days a year with far less risk from external factors than traditional farming.”.
“BVT is committed to helping farmers of all circumstances,” said Mr. Collinson. “We are pleased and excited to enter the growing CEA market. BVT’s natural precision agriculture system, which is OMRI-listed for organic use, can help indoor growers’ productivity by helping them produce better quality fruits and vegetables – and provide consumers with premium products.”
Separately, the company is announcing the resignation of Mr. Mark Kohler from the company’s board of directors, effective October 7th, 2022. Mr. Kohler has stepped down for personal reasons.
