ICC Labs (TSXV:ICC) announced it completed the first outdoor harvest of hemp for the company.
As quoted in the press release:
The Company harvested hemp planted on approximately 430 acres of land distributed between its Canelones and Flores sites. The Company is now commencing the drying process for the harvested material, which will take between three to four weeks, and is preparing the soil for the next seeding, expected to occur next September.
This first outdoor crop will provide ICC Labs’ agronomists the opportunity to analyze and discover the behaviour of the three strains ICC Labs planted so as to optimize future planting in accordance with local, Uruguayan climatic and soil conditions.
ICC Labs is also pleased to announce that it has completed the construction of its temporary laboratory in Uruguay’s Science Park, which will become a permanent analytical laboratory after the Company’s larger-scale CO2 extraction facility is constructed and begins running at full capacity.
