Some repercussions of our project in the news media:
Authorized by the Ministry of Health of the Nation - within the framework of Law 27350 and in a technological association agreement with INTA Pergamino, our company became the first private enterprise in Argentina to start a cannabis cultivation with productive purposes and scientific and medical research.
We seek to contribute to the production of pharmaceutical grade raw material that accrues in medical and therapeutic applications, facilitating the supply of local demand for the production of national quality, accessible products with proven safety, taking care of consumers, patients and users.
Our focus is on the pursue of R&D and production activities: cannabis cultivation techniques with different genetic varieties adapted to the conditions of our geography and climate, the design of production protocols supported by the integration of local technologies of traceability, applied artificial intelligence, automation, nutrition, processing, sensorization and monitoring of crops that are subsequently scalable at the agronomic level, complying with the highest quality standards required by the industry worldwide.
We are Green Innovation; environmentally friendly and socially responsible products and solutions to facilitate sustainable development.
Currently the Experimental Station has 748 hectares, where are its various facilities (buildings, laboratories, greenhouses, etc.) and 15 Rural Development Agencies. In its experimental field, trials and experiences are carried out in accordance with the regional and strategic projects underway, producing technical information for the entire Pampas area and in some areas for other areas of the country.
More than 130 professionals from different specialties carry out their research, experimentation and rural development activities based on sustainability, equity and agri-food competitiveness.
Our team is made up of top-level technical and scientific experts, dedicated to the research and development of a local agro-technological methodology for the production of pharmaceutical grade cannabis.

Testimonials about our project and the horizon of the cannabis industry in Argentina
This agreement is a great challenge and an enormous opportunity for the Pergamino Experimental Station, both for the institution and for the professionals who will participate in the project. The main objective is to start a process of generating knowledge of high scientific-technological value, fundamental for the development of the industry related to the production of cannabis derivatives in Argentina. From the association with Pampa Hemp, we will have the opportunity to be part of the local development, research and cultivation of cannabis, generating transferable technology that empowers the industry through public-private integration. For INTA, it is an unprecedented experience, and we are committed to strengthening the ties between the public and private sectors as a strategy to stimulate the innovation that our country needs to enhance its insertion in global agro-industrial markets.
Argentina is one of the main agro-exporting countries in the world. We have the capacity for innovation to export to the world not only our production but also agricultural scientific and technological knowledge, perfecting our own production models
Our country has on the table the chance of generating USD 1 billion in exports in the next 10 years, and the fact of being the only representative of Latin America in the PIC / S (Pharmaceutical Inspection Cooperation Scheme) positions us in an outstanding way in what related to the development and commercialization of medicines for human or veterinary use at an international level
Some repercussions of our project in the news media:
The Argentine SME, in conjunction with INTA, will produce cannabis for medicinal purposes in the country. Thus, it begins a new stage that seeks to boost the supply of raw materials for the pharmaceutical market.
For the first time in the country, a private enterprise of the local cannabis industry managed to import seeds to carry out an experimental and research cultivation in the national territory.
From the flexibility of the regulatory framework, new active ventures arose such as Cannava, with
the participation of the Jujuy government, and the private Pampa Hemp, a company that is going to
grow in Pergamino.
