Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – June 12, 2020) – Oxford Investments Holdings Inc. (OTC Pink: OXIHF) (“Oxford” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its Florida-based subsidiary, Pioneer Green Farms LLC. (“Pioneer Green”), has commenced hemp cultivation operations in Florida. Drymon’s Citrus Nursery (“Drymon’s”) of Sarasota, Florida, has been granted a hemp cultivation license by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Plant Division. Pioneer Green has a license agreement with Drymon’s, whereby Drymon’s is the license holder and will operate the project on behalf of Pioneer Green.
Cultivation will commence immediately at the Pioneer Green farm property near Sarasota, which currently has four 30ft x 100ft greenhouses specializing in clone production. The Company plans to build an extraction plant on the site, which will produce full spectrum CBD oil. It is expected that once hemp cultivation is fully operational, each greenhouse could produce three crops per year. The immediate plan is seeding, cloning and cultivation. Under the terms of the State license, all hemp cultivation plots are to be sampled for THC content within 15 days of harvest, hemp cultivation must follow the environmental containment and transportation plan that was submitted with the application, and Drymon’s must reapply for a license to cultivate hemp in Florida after 12 months of receiving its certificate.
Clones are rooted cuttings that are genetically identical to the plant they were taken from. Through cloning, you can create a new harvest with exact replicas of your best performing plants, which can provide a level of consistency, stability and sustainability.
“We are excited to finally begin our hemp farming operations in Florida. This will be a major component in our strategy of building a fully vertically-integrated seed-to-shelf hemp-based CBD company. Our plan is to create specific genetic strains of high quality hemp that will have a high degree of consistency and can lead to significantly higher profit margins. Any excess product that we can’t use in our CBD production, we plan to sell to other growers and CBD producers,” stated Michael Donaghy, President of Oxford. “The current ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on the overall economy and the hemp-based CBD industry in particular. Fortunately for Pioneer Green, we can use this downtime to grow and test our initial clone crop and prepare for when the economy returns to normal.”
