Segra International Corp. (“Segra”) is pleased to announce that it has finalized an agreement with Agripharm Corp. (“Agripharm”) to incorporate Segra’s cannabis tissue culture micropropagation technology into Agripharm’s cannabis production systems, enabling Agripharm to rapidly scale up its production of disease-free, genetically verified cannabis plants.

“Segra is thrilled to assist Agripharm in scaling up production while maintaining the highest possible quality standards,” said Segra’s CEO and cofounder, Todd McMurray. “This is another huge milestone for Segra toward our goal of becoming the premier global brand in cannabis micropropagation.”

Working with Agripharm’s team, Segra will construct a tissue culture lab at the Agripharm facility in Creemore, Ontarioin order to prepare numerous cultivars for the micropropagation process. Subject to performance milestones, production will then move to Segra’s dedicated cannabis micropropagation facility for mass production once construction and licensing are complete.

“Segra’s cannabis tissue culture technology will be an essential component of our cultivation process,” said Green House Seed Co. founder, Arjan Roskam. “As we tap into Green House Seed Co.’s award-winning genetics library, our number one priority will be ensuring that we can reliably reproduce the strains that consumers have come to love. We believe that using micropropagation will be a big leap forward in ensuring we can continue to deliver genetically accurate and disease-free products to market.”

“The benefits of integrating micropropagation into industrial-scale agricultural businesses are well documented; we expect this partnership to drive meaningful cost improvements while also improving product quality and increasing production efficiencies,” said Agripharm CEO and cofounder, Peter Miller. “This was a no-brainer.”
