Join AGQ Labs for the 2019 Imperial Valley Hemp Summit & Expo on next September 27-28 at Imperial Valley Fairgrounds in Imperial, California
Our Agronomy and Food Safety teams will be attending all visitors. Come and join us! AGQ Labs is also a proud sponsor of this event.
The inaugural Imperial County Hemp Summit & Expo will take place this fall of 2019 in Imperial, California. Thousands of acres of prime farmland in the low desert of Southern California developed the region known as the Imperial Valley. Today, the Imperial Valley is one of the most productive agricultural centers in California and the United States, supplying the majority of vegetables to the nation during winter months. The region’s abundant and affordable land and water, coupled with an optimal climate that allows for multiple growing cycles a year, have positioned Imperial County as an opportune region for industrial hemp.
Imperial County Hemp Summit & Expo will serve as an all-encompassing marketplace for education, networking and marketing for growers, processors, manufacturers and retailers in the hemp industry. The event will include a full day of expert panels and speeches led by top industry professionals, regional tours of local growing operations and research facilities, and a two-day business expo. ICHemp will cover topics including:
- Local Opportunities and Resources
- Banking, Financing and Insurance
- Legislation and Compliance
- Best Field Practices
- Extraction and Processing
- Manufacturing and Products

With Crop Nutritional Monitoring (CNM) system AGQ Labs has been monitoring and evaluating the chemical needs of crops for over 25 years and we have helped clients around the world increase crop production, improve product quality and size, optimize fertilizer and water usage, control salinity and establish zero pesticide leaching methods.
AGQ Labs continuously evaluates what the crop needs at all times. Throughout the campaign we monitor the water and nutrient uptake of the crop and advise our clients on how to adjust their irrigation and fertilizers to the optimal level. This type of control also allows AGQ Labs’ clients to follow sustainable agricultural practice because leaching is minimized. The result is:
- Minimizing environmental impact
- Optimization of fertigation
- Higher quality product
- Significant cost savings in fertilizers
- Increased productivity and performance
AGQ Labs has developed an internal proprietary procedure for crop nutritional monitoring and control that is based on the analysis of soil solutions that are extracted by AGQ Labs’ patented suction lysimeter probes. AGQ Labs’ Crop Nutritional Monitoring Program is based on the comprehensive control of the Soil-Plant-Water system.
AGQ Labs’ quality seal certifies farms are using sustainable agricultural practices that guarantees the farm is using fertilizers, water, and pesticides efficiently and minimizing their impact on the environment.
