Vegalab, Inc., an industry leader in the soft chemistry segment of the natural agrochemical industry, recently announced that it was honored with the “Best Fertilizer Company” award at the National Hemp Expo held at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky on April 13 & 14, 2019.
This was the inaugural year for the exposition, which highlighted the rapidly growing market for hemp seed and fiber, which are utilized to create a plethora of products including cannabidiol (CBD oil), the demand for which is growing at an explosive rate. The show offered over 1300 growers and industry representatives the opportunity to walk an exhibition space where Vegalab was one of over 50 exhibitors - as well as a title sponsor of the event.
In addition to the exhibition area, the show featured two days of industry expert panels. Vegalab, Inc. sales representative, Greg Sanford, participated in the “Soil, Fertility, and Farming Methods” panel, which gave him the opportunity to explain the intrinsic value of Vegalab’s “soft chemistry” fertility and crop protection products to the over 150 farmer/growers in attendance.
At the conclusion of the Expo, exhibitor awards were presented in six categories. Recognizing that Vegalab’s products are a “natural” for hemp growers, particularly those growing hemp for CBD production, the judges voted Vegalab, Inc. the Best Fertilizer Company at the show. The judges likely took into account the fact that Vegalab’s fertility and crop protection products are sustainable, all natural, and safe for human consumption; that growers using poisonous synthetic pesticides on their crop run the risk of those pesticides showing up in processor testing; and that when that happens, the entire crop is rejected.
David Selakovic, CEO of Vegalab, stated, “Growers and industry leaders, who had the opportunity to learn about our products during the expert panel and by stopping by our booth, agreed that Vegalab’s soft chemistry products are a perfect solution for hemp growers. With interest generated from hundreds of growers, as well as regional retailers who are interested in carrying Vegalab products, we believe Vegalab’s line of all-natural, biologically derived pesticides, fertilizers, and specialty agricultural products will become the go-to products in the hemp industry.”
