THRIVING AND SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION,

WITH NORTHSHORE AGRISCIENCE.

Issues in the Agricultural World

The Market is in need of more land to culminate food production. Poor farming practices and deforestation are degrading the land that is responsible for supplying food to the world. FAO estimates that some 1,200 million hectares of land are affected by soil degradation.

Our Solutions

Utilizing regenerative agriculture can increase yields through alternative production methods. Northshore Agriscience offers services and products that help achieve higher crop yields through sustainable practices.

Why Invest in Sustainability?

One study estimated that companies experience an average internal rate of return of 27% to 80% on their low carbon investments. Fields that use regenerative agriculture techniques help extract Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere by transferring it to the soil, thus contributing to climate change mitigation and soil restoration. According to the Rodale Institute, regenerative agriculture is a powerful tool to help mitigate climate change.

 

Regenerative agriculture is an opportunity for farmers to expand their income sources (increased profitability per hectare per input use optimization and yield increase), using circular economy models, and the generation of carbon credits for international markets. Sustainable agricultural practices properly applied to primary production can have a positive impact of 70% on the company’s EBITDA increase.

 

Companies like Pepsico, Nestle, Danone, and Heineken have invested in regenerative agriculture. Here are Heineken’s results:

 

🌾 30% water saving.

🌾 48% higher water efficiency.

🌾 11% higher yield per hectare.

Northshore Advantages.

By defining the needs and practices that need to be implemented, we will begin planning a timeline of regenerative processes. We take things on a month to month basis so that results are recorded efficiently. Every company we assist has its own process to accompany its environment, soil health, and crop lifestyle. We will create a detailed work plan that will facilitate production by:

 

🌾 Identifying the areas of opportunity.

 

🌾 Creating a needs-based action plan to achieve cultivation optimization. The aggregate effect and the gains derived from the implementation of the different practices will depend on each system. Systems with poor soil health and/or with suboptimal management conditions will present greater gains in less time, as compared to systems with more efficient management and/or with good soil health.

SEED DEVELOPMENT

Our multi-disciplinary team of scientists is doing cutting edge quantitative breeding, field trials, and agronomy.

 

Plant breeding 101: Our team uses various methods to create, select and fix superior plant phenotypes (i.e. the physical observable characteristics of an organism) in the development of improved cultivars (i.e. plant variety that has been produced by selective breeding) suited to the needs of farmers and consumers.

TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

Thanks to the advanced academic and practical training of our team, we provide clients with high-quality support via detailed farming practices, guidance and recommendations for handling and caring for hemp throughout the cultivation, harvest and post-harvest process.

 

We are developing a large-scale state-of-the-art production operation in Illinois that will feature a quality-controlled environment to produce, manufacture and distribute hemp seeds. The Illinois location will also include a small R&D laboratory, where testing and some R&D will take place, as well as an outdoor planting area for outdoor trial purposes.

 

Each of our products will be tested in outdoor environments to ensure that you will enjoy the fruits of a reliable seed that you can count on come harvest time.

INTERNATIONAL MARKETS

The anticipated deregulation of Cannabis in Mexico in the coming months opens new opportunities for hemp, Mexico is expected to follow the U.S.’s lead in terms of deregulating the hemp market; legislation is currently expected to be enacted by the end of 2020. Northshore Agriscience has also engaged the services of a reputable lobbying firm in Mexico, and who will be advocating on behalf of the hemp industry over the coming months.

 

As a result, we expect to leverage our international team to develop a large R&D campus that will conduct plant breeding and clinical studies in Mexico. This will allow more efficient development of hemp seeds for distribution in the U.S.

GERMPLASM REPOSITORY

The success of a breeding program depends on two main factors:

 

  • Having the necessary genetic variety
  • Being able to manipulate that genetic material to produce a new stable cultivar

 

To that end, an essential element of our research and development efforts is our Germplasm Repository or Seed bank. Northshore Agriscience is actively engaged in an effort to collect hemp seeds from around the world in order to build up the first comprehensive cannabis hemp gene bank in the world.
