ONIT Sciences flagship product, ONIT Grow™ has been tested successfully in Cuba on tobacco, coffee and gladiolus. These field trials were performed by Ministry of Agriculture officials in conjunction with local farmers and were definitive in their findings that ONIT Grow provided great benefit to plant health and yield. The Ministry is currently conducting final tests of the composition of ONIT Grow with the intent to issue an official importation certificate.
“Our agent in Cuba has been meeting personally with key members of the Ministry of Agriculture to help expedite the final approval of our product for sale in Cuba,” stated Jeff Moses, chief marketing officer at ONIT Sciences. “We can reasonably expect significant orders to stem from the final testing of ONIT Grow and look forward to introducing ONIT Input+ and ONIT Input to the Cuban farming industry in the near future.”
Once the world’s largest exporter of sugar, Cuba’s agricultural production dropped significantly with the fall of the Soviet Union. Even with the decline of the sugar industry, agriculture in Cuba employs 20% of the population and utilizes 30% of the island’s land. The Guardian recently published an article detailing Cuba’s adoption or organic agriculture (read here). The push towards organic farming methods is gaining traction, both from inside the government, at the farm level and by foreign interests as the country looks to push agro-ecological production while increasing yield. ONIT Sciences believes its products directly address the challenges faced in Cuba.
