BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI–(Marketwired – May 1, 2017) – ProGreen US, Inc. (ProGreen), (OTCQB: PGUS), www.ProGreenUS.com, @ProGreenUS; Progreen is pleased to announce that Contel has completed the operational development of the first ProGreen Farm, and we are now actively growing chili peppers destined for the US market.
Contel obtained a $1.1M+ (USD) contract with a major exporter to the U.S. for chili peppers to be grown on the first 100 acres, as announced in the press release on January 23, 2017. During the past months, Contel has been very active with development and preparation of the land for the growing operations, with the final step of installing the drip irrigation, which has now been completed.
With the planting process now well underway, we expect to have 60 of the 100 acres completed with 1.4 million chili plants in the ground by the end of the week, and we are looking forward to begin harvesting in July.
