Toronto, Ontario - Deveron UAS Corp. (CSE: DVR) ("Deveron" or the "Company"), and A & L Canada Laboratories ("A&L") are pleased to announce the launch of a national plant tissue testing service to agriculture advisors and producers looking for a reliable, turn-key solution to tissue sampling and testing this crop year and into the future. Driven by the need for more detailed data points about crop development and specific in-season management issues, A&L and Deveron believe this service to be a significant new value-add offering to round out fertility programs, soil testing and other progressive precision agriculture programs.
Key Program Highlights:
Nevin McDougall, A&L's President commented "Tissue testing provides timely, in-season assessment about crop development that can illustrate potential fertility issues normally overlooked. We know that accurate results provide significant value-add in a crop management program, but a key challenge to expanding any tissue program has been mobilizing labour in a timely fashion and making sure collection protocols are standardized. With the launch of this turn-key service with Deveron, we believe we are on the path to accelerating the use of tissue testing across our large, national customer base who see the value, but have not had the time or resources to properly support an active program through the crop season."
"Our data collection team has expanded their footprint over the last 18 months, and we are really excited about the opportunity to add an additional product line to our services," commented David MacMillan, Deveron's President and CEO. "Tissue testing provides another complimentary offering to our drone and soil sampling services, that is a natural fit with respect to providing additional data points to our users to make fully informed decisions with respect to their crop conditions. We are also excited about the continued development of deeper integration with A&L, Canada's leading agriculture testing group. I believe this is just the beginning of more products and services that we will be able to co-develop."
