SK3 Group, Inc. has secured an additional 10 acres of real estate in Northern California to develop and manage state-of-the-art growing facilities.

A portion of the newly secured land has been engaged in the legal cultivation of medicinal marijuana for a number of years, specializing in the development of high-CBD strains, and certain strains specifically designed for the new non-psychoactive cannabis-based medicinal marijuana being developed for the pharmaceutical market.

Over the past two months, SK3 Group, Inc has secured an aggregate of over 50 acres of land for medical marijuana cultivation. The land secured by SK3 Group will enable the collectives to maintain a perpetual harvest year round. Part of the fertilizer / nutrient needs for this new facility will be supplied by the byproducts of the Southern California facilities, which incorporate aquaculture with hydroponics. The newer land acquisition in Northern California utilizes several proprietary technologies to produce the finest medicine year round, in a very energy-efficient manner. The facility combines greenhouse growing with HID and LED enhancement, photoperiod control via light deprivation, growth acceleration by C02 enhancement (utilizing captured CO2), and hydroponic growing techniques utilizing organic nutrients and enzyme teas.

Four Newly-Identified Genes Could Improve Rice
A Japanese research team have applied a method used in human genetic analysis to rice and rapidly discovered four new genes that are potentially significant for agriculture. These findings could influence crop breeding and help combat food shortages caused by a growing population.
“Amazing Protein Diversity” Discovered in Maize
The genome of the corn plant – or maize, as it’s called almost everywhere except the US – “is a lot more exciting” than scientists have previously believed. So says the lead scientist in a new effort to analyze and annotate the depth of the plant’s genetic resources.
Invasive Species Could Cause Billions in Agriculture Damages
Invasive insects and pathogens could be a multi-billion-dollar threat to global agriculture and developing countries may be the biggest target, according to a team of international researchers.
Genetic Research Can Significantly Improve Drug Development
With drug development costs topping $1.2bn (£850 million) to get a single treatment to the point it can be sold and used in the clinic, could genetic analysis save hundreds of millions of dollars?
