BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October 15, 2019–
Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. (“ZGSI” or the “Company”) (Pink Sheets: ZGSI), an agricultural biotechnology public company commercializing its technology derived from and designed for Space with significant applications for agriculture on Earth, has established a collaboration with the 109,000 member National Black Farmers Association (NBFA) to utilize the advantages of BAM Agricultural Solutions’ commercial agricultural technology, BAM-FX®, in a research and development project at the NBFA Let’s Get Growing Campus in Boydton, Virginia. The project will provide an interactive learning opportunity to the major national farming group. The NBFA works to bring the most advanced agricultural technologies and farming practices to its members.
“As economic pressure mounts for the nation’s agricultural farmers, the need for farms to increase return on investment (ROI) and contend with issues such as climate change and biotic stress makes the use of BAM-FX an important technology and product for farmers seeking to maximize ROI. BAM-FX not only improves the yield and quality of conventional crops, but can also become a valuable tool as farmers transition from low ROI crops to hemp and other high ROI crops,” stated Harvey Kaye, ZGSI’s Chairman of the Board.
“Recognizing the economic trend in agriculture, we are encouraging our members to consider the economic benefits of transitioning from commodity and trade sensitive crops to high ROI crops, such as hemp. Our endorsement of BAM-FX along with the collaboration with BAM Agricultural Solutions will bring the best technology and growing knowledge to the new, exciting hemp market. We believe in the approach that BAM-FX technology utilizes to produce powerful plants with the ability to employ natural immune defenses,” stated John W. Boyd, Jr., President of the National Black Farmers Association.
