Buz Investors  – Greengro Technologies, Inc. (OTC:GRNH), a world-class provider of eco-friendly green technologies, today launched a new internal company division called GenoBreeding that will direct a Greengro initiative to bring to the market cutting edge cannabis varieties through the application of modern plant breeding technologies.

This initiative from Greengro is in keeping with the cannabis industry’s increasing reliance on genetics – heredity and the variation of inherited characteristic in plants – to help growers create better, more powerful and sometimes personalized commercial cannabis strains that share desirable inherited characteristics.

“This initiative includes the use of conventional and modern plant breeding techniques to develop high quality cannabis varieties for medical use,” said Greengro CEO James Haas.

Greengro is working with a team of specialized plant scientists and geneticists to develop cannabis varieties that possess improved levels of key compositional traits (e.g., THC and CBD) by using innovative breeding technologies, according to Haas, who said that Greengro has had its cannabis genetics program in development for a number of years.

Greengro’s GenoBreeding group is focused on developing breeding tools such as molecular markers to enable breeding decisions and processes to achieve top-tier plant performance in a sustainable manner.

“Our collaboration through this initiative with leading scientists enables us to utilize proven crop breeding techniques in the indoor production of cannabis, while at the same time modernizing Greengro’s existing efforts to produce original products for California’s cannabis market,” said Haas, who indicated that the GenoBreeding division will eventually be spun off into its own company.

“We’re developing market leading elite cannabis genetics with innovative breeding solutions,” explained Haas.

Greengro’s GenoBreeding initiative combines elite cannabis genetics with state-of-the-art plant breeding methods to maximize yields and expression of desired traits.  Key elements in the breeding program include:

  • Development of molecular markers for desired traits and implementation of marker-assisted selection to reduce breeding cycle time.
  • Application of genomic systems to enable breeding decisions and processes to achieve sustainable, top-tier plant performance.

The goal of Greengro’s GenoBreeding initiative in using applied genetics in cannabis production is to promote stability and predictability in hybridized strains.  Stability refers to minimizing variability and maximizing predictability found in the offspring of parent plant generations.

Genetics is helping growers create better, more powerful and sometimes personalized commercial cannabis strains.

This process involves the cannabis genome (the complete set of genes and genetic material present in the plant), genotype (the plant’s complete heritable genetic identity), and phenotype (the set of a strain’s expressed, observable characteristics resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment).

Variability, a consequence of strain genetic instability, refers to the range of different phenotypes that will express when hybridizing two different plant strains.  Desirable predictability refers to the expected distribution ratio of a plant’s different phenotypes expressed as a unique strain.

Oil prices fall 1% as supply strains storage

Oil prices fall 1% as supply strains storage

Oil prices fall on Friday, ending a two-day rally, as a glut of crude and refined products weighed on markets and investors eyed a possible stutter in China’s imports.

Futures held their losses after the dollar index spiked following abetter-than-expected U.S. jobs report that showed the country added 255,000 positions in July. A stronger greenback makes dollar-denominated crude more expensive to holders of other currencies.

U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude crude futures fell 67 cents, or 1.6 percent, to $41.26 per barrel at 9:46 a.m. ET (1346 GMT).

“Signs of fatigue are already apparent and include a notable dip in Chinese crude oil imports,” PVM’s Stephen Brennock wrote, adding that spare capacity in the country’s strategic storage space is less than 100 million barrels.

“A major pillar of oil demand is therefore on course to ease considerably over the coming months,” Brennock said.

Still, China surpassed South Korea as the top Asian buyer of North Sea Forties crude this year, while trading house Trafigura was aggressively targeting China’s newest buyers by extending credit to two of the country’s independent refiners.

Investors added the equivalent of 56 million barrels of short positions in the three main Brent and WTI futures and options contracts in the week to July 26.

“Since there was no news yesterday that might have triggered the price rise, this points to short-covering,” Commerzbank analyst Carsten Fritsch said.

“Clearly many market participants were caught on the hop by the increase in prices following the publication of U.S. inventory data on Wednesday,” he said.

CannaGrow Holdings, Inc. and State Licensed Grower Announce the Arrival of Additional Highly Marketable Cannabis Strains at Colorado Buffalo Ranch Project I

CENTENNIAL, CO–(Marketwired – Jul 22, 2016) –  CannaGrow Holdings, Inc. ( OTC PINK : CGRW ) CannaGrow Holdings, Inc., a Liaison and Consultant providing turnkey solutions to licensed growers in the legal Cannabis industry, today announced that Category One Botanicals, Sub-Lessor and State License Holder at the Grow Facility at the Buffalo Project I, has moved eight additional strains into the site Mother Plant Room.

 

Dr. John P. Janovec, Ph.D., C.O.O. of CannaGrow Holdings, states, “The arrival of the additional strains is really rounding out our genetic inventory. The Mother Plant Room now holds over 20 strains with growth cycles that range from eight weeks to five months. Indica and Indica Hybrids that mature early will help us to start making a respectable entry into the Wholesale Market while starting the process of branding our products. S High yield, longer cycle Sativa Strains will emphasize our capabilities as a genuine wholesale provider.”

 

Rod Clawson, Licensed Grower and Managing Member of Category One Botanicals LLC, adds, “When Dr. Janovec requested additional strains for the Mother Plant Room Inventory, I made the calls and made it happen. It has already been demonstrated to me what a dedicated and motivated team can accomplish. Our goal is to ramp up our production cycle as quickly as possible and take full advantage of all of the grow space that is available to us. With the Nexus Green House providing a year-round growing environment and the Seasonal Green Houses having the capabilities to produce nine months out of the year, I think it is safe to say we can expect great things in the future.”

 

Jason Wells, CannaGrow Holdings’ Consultant, remarked, “I am really looking forward to seeing these clones make the transition from the Mother Plant Room into the Nexus Green House and the three Seasonal Green Houses. The opportunity to work with strains such as ‘Gorilla Glue,’ ‘Master Kush,’ ‘Jack Flash,’ ‘Biodiesel,’ and ‘Head Band’ is very exciting. The Mother Plant Room will provide a perpetual output of clones and an environment for the development of new strains.”

 

Delmar Janovec, CEO, stated, “Everything has really come together and all of the hard work and long hours should begin to pay off in a big way. I hope to be able to make some very significant expansion announcements as we look for additional businesses and opportunities in the Colorado Cannabis Industry.”
