BP Gardens Addressing Agricultural Challenges in Nicaragua Amid Country's Blue Revolution

Company to Introduce New Facility That Will Provide Lifesaving Technologies to Regional Farmers and Communities

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2016) - GreenGro Technologies (OTC PINK: GRNH) a world-class provider of eco-friendly green technologies announced today that its subsidiary, BP Gardens, a controlled environment agriculture (CEA) company specializing in the use of leading-edge technologies and state-of-the-art production methods, will open its first international facility and new business venture in Latin America with the opening of its BP Gardens Nicaragua facility later this year.

Existing R&D BP Gardens' Projects are currently in operation to address sustainable agriculture, job creation and water conservation issues in drought stricken California. Its Buena Park, CA facility is a fully hydroponic 5,000 seat grow system and its Lincoln, CA facility is a zero-waste aquaponics system. Each month, the Lincoln site can produce up to 38,000 heads of leafy greens, which is nearly 53 percent more than a traditional greenhouse of the same size, and only uses .78 gallons of water per head -- well below the national standard of 15.4 gallons per head. The company hopes to replicate this same success in Nicaragua.

"BP Gardens has the technological capabilities to solve regional agriculture challenges around the world, just as we've showcased in California," said James Haas, CEO of GreenGro. "BP Gardens is expanding to Nicaragua because the country is currently going through a blue revolution. Initiatives, such as the country's Second Agriculture Technology Project, are stimulating the nations agriculture industry by providing rural areas with more sustainable resources and services than ever before and advancing the way that people farm and utilize water," Haas continued. "We look forward to contributing to these advancements by bringing our own innovations to the region and sparking agricultural growth."

Currently, a third of Nicaraguans rely on agriculture for survival and according to the USDA, receive a large amount of food aid due to the country's limited capabilities in producing food for human and animal consumption.

Greengro has partnered with Roger Rodriguez of Morales & Rodriguez to introduce and distribute GreenGro solutions in Nicaragua and expand business in the region. Such products include greenhouses, solar, aquaculture, aeroponic, aquaponics and hydroponic systems.

"Since last year, GreenGro has increased monthly sales by nearly 33 percent. With the expansion into Latin America markets, we are confident that our companies will continue great success into the New Year," stated Haas.
