Arcturus begins construction roll out for Rhode Island urban farm
The company plans to use the Rhode Island farm to showcase its proprietary scalable, indoor Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) technology, which allows it to produce crops more cost effectively than traditional farming methods, without the use of chemical pesticides, all while using 90% less water and fertilizer. Mr. Coull has experience with Arcturus' CEA technology, and even helped to refine the CEA system by creating greater efficiencies during growth trial phases.
"We are excited to have Jim Coull and his team of construction professionals on board with us in the development and construction of our Rhode Island farm, which can grow both leafy greens as well as cannabis," says Mr. William Gildea, Arcturus Growthstar Technologies, Inc.'s CEO and Chairman. "Mr. Coull's reputation for excellence and comprehensive construction management services will ensure our flagship farm's success."
Mr. Coull adds, "I am pleased to see this project is underway and look forward to help bring it to a successful conclusion. It will provide fresh organic produce to the Rhode Island Market on a one-day 'harvest to table' basis. CEA is the coming trend in the food production business, and is of particular importance here in New England where our growing season is very short."
