VANCOUVER, (July 21, 2021) Segra International Corp. ("Segra"), a Canadian agriculture technology company, is pleased to announce the successful shipment of over 3,000 Cannabis plantlets comprised of seven unique cultivars to one of the three largest cannabis companies in the world.
With this order, Segra is collaborating with their client on the trial of various premium cultivars intended to diversify the client's product portfolio. The client plans to use these plantlets to validate the inherent efficiencies of utilizing plant tissue culture to outsource internal propagation efforts, maximize flowering canopy, and reduce operating expenses.
As part of Segra's Verified Segra Stock™ guarantee, these plantlets were DNA fingerprinted and screened intensively for known plant pathogens and diseases utilizing Segra's best-in-class quality assurance program. Starting with this input material supports the growing of replicable crops and provides the grower certainty they will receive the same standardized input material with each shipment. Furthermore, the application of VNTR DNA fingerprinting technology can be used throughout the supply chain for track and trace purposes, from plantlet to flower, which can provide both producers and consumers with much-needed confidence regarding cultivar consistency order-after-order.
"With competition increasing in the Canadian and international markets and continued growth in demand for high THC products, Segra is offering a solution for producers to maintain competitiveness by offering proprietary, high-value genetics through a premium tissue cultured format," said Jamie Blundell, Segra's Chief Executive Officer. "Segra's tissue culture processes, pathogen detection tests, and quality control systems represent the emerging gold standard for modern cannabis operations. We look forward to working with this client and other producers around the world to showcase how better plants lead to better products and profits."
