Segra International Wins the Award for Best Genetics Provider

In September 2022 at the Grow Up awards in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Segra took home the award for Best Genetics Provider. This award is given to the nominee with the greatest number of votes from the industry. We are honored to be the top choice for genetics among all the great companies nominated in this category.

At Segra, we focus on being a leader in Cannabis tissue culture with a strong portfolio of cultivars. The 2022 issue of our Cannabis Catalogue displayed our award-winning genetic selection that was met with great praise from Canadian and international customers. However, the value Segra offers customers is recognized as not only providing great genetics, but also in the quality and integrity of the standards we uphold.
