CO2 GRO Inc (CVE:GROW) (OTCQB:BLONF) (FRA:4021) has announced a commercial feasibility of a CO2 Delivery Solutions system with UK tomato greenhouse grower La Serra Ltd.
The company said the commercial feasibility will be conducted in a section of La Serra’s 8-hectare (861,000 square foot) greenhouse for one year.
It said the primary focus of the commercial feasibility is to assess CO2 Delivery Solutions’ Perimeter Protection benefits. Suppression of powdery mildew on susceptible tomato varieties is of interest to La Serra as it is expected to result in significant crop savings and improved operating margins.

CO2 GRO also said the commercial feasibility will monitor enhanced tomato fruit production and CO2 usage at the facility, which is a state-of-the-art glass greenhouse employing hybrid lighting with both Top LED and Inter-lighting which operates year-round.
“We are interested in the CO2 Delivery Solutions technology and in particular its plant Perimeter Protection benefits,” said La Serra General Manager Nick Arnst in a statement.
“Suppressing powdery mildew can be a challenge, given the variety of tomatoes we grow. Suppression of powdery mildew would result in significant crop savings and be positively reflected in our operating margins. At La Serra, one of the most technologically advanced tomato greenhouses in the UK, our goals are to leverage all available technology to operate a facility that is sustainable, minimizes its carbon footprint while at the same time maximizing financial performance.”
CO2 GRO said the project was sourced by UK-based marketing partner Rika BioTech Limited.
Aaron Archibald, vice president of sales & strategic alliances, added: “Our partnership with Rika has already borne fruit with our previous commercial feasibility announcements in France and the Netherlands. We are excited for Rika’s second project in their home country, the United Kingdom. We look forward to continue gaining traction in their exclusive markets of the UK, the Netherlands and Belgium where they are building the foundation for a strong sales pipeline.”
