Functional Remedies Leapfrogs Hemp Industry with Next-Gen Tech on Company-Owned Farm
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 10, 2019--Functional Remedies, the only vertically-integrated hemp oil company, announced it has implemented precision technology utilized in mainstream agriculture to maximize plant health and yields with data-driven, actionable insights.
Functional Remedies’ company-owned farm in Colorado is applying next-gen agroscience technology and lab analytics to capture the DNA of the soil -- testing for nutrient levels, pH, chloride, diseases, heavy metals and microbes among others. The sampling is coupled with GPS ground-probing to map the entire farm. By combining sampling and GPS mapping, Functional Remedies can track the transition of nutrients from soil to flower with pinpoint accuracy, helping make faster, data-informed decisions.
Using a two-pronged approach, Functional Remedies is also mapping the health of its hemp above ground with unmanned aerial vehicles (U.A.V. or drones). The drone footage is plugged into the latest artificial intelligence (A.I.) software to capture data, including healthy and destructive pests, plant stress, disease and prevalence of invasive plants. The footage allows the capture of minute information down to the singular insect or the veins on the individual hemp plants. These actionable insights will allow Functional Remedies to grow and maintain the healthiest and most nutrient-rich hemp plants.
“I’ve been growing and breeding hemp for over 20 years,” said Functional Remedies Chief Science Officer, Tim Gordon. “The future of agriculture is hemp, and this next stage of growth lies with being able to take data and turn it into action to grow the highest quality and healthiest hemp crops in the industry. We look forward to continuing to use the latest technology to make smarter, faster and quantifiable decisions and show consumers we care deeply about what goes into our final lipid-infused hemp oil products.”
Functional Remedies is the only vertically-integrated hemp oil company in the U.S. and the only national company using a proprietary, lipid infusion process. This latest precision agriculture improvement to the farm will not only help maximize plant health and yields but is a testament to bringing consumers a hemp oil product they can trust, knowing it doesn’t contain harsh chemicals, has accurate ingredient labeling and can pinpoint exactly where the hemp is grown. No other hemp or CBD companies can make this claim of traceability or quality control.
