Major milestone in RotoGro’s hydroponic agricultural technology

RotoGro International Ltd’s (ASX:RGI) subsidiary has secured a $2.3 million order for its hydroponic growing systems from Miracle Valley Medical Alternatives.

Miracle Valley is currently building a 29,000 square feet state-of-the-art cultivation and manufacturing facility in British Columbia, Canada.

Aiming to produce up to 5,400 kilograms of lawful cannabis per annum

Phase one of the facility is comprised of about 10,000 square feet of grow rooms which will be outfitted with RotoGro Hydroponic Garden Systems (to be stacked two units high and in four-unit pods).

The facility will also use RotoGro’s propriety iGrow grow management software.

Miracle Valley projects that the facility will produce up to 5,400 kilograms of lawful cannabis per annum, harnessing RotoGro’s systems which provide the lowest cost per gram and the highest yield per square feet in the industry.

First large-scale order from Health Canada licensed producer

RotoGro managing director Michael Carli said: “The successful award of the Miracle Valley Order is a major milestone in RotoGro’s quest to becoming the world leader in hydroponic agricultural technology.

“The order provides the Company with its first large-scale Health Canada licensed producer which will be a flagship to promote further large-scale orders of our RotoGro Hydroponic Garden Systems.”

RotoGro will provide growing management support

The order is a result of several months of collaboration during which RotoGro provided Miracle Valley with front-end technical support and facility design solutions.

This included support for building selection, electrical and mechanical design, liaison with local municipalities, installation specifications, and building layout and optimisation.

RotoGro will continue to provide onsite assembly, installation, testing, certification, training and growing management support for Miracle Valley.
