McGill Researcher to Collaborate with Urban Barns

MONTREAL, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - URBAN BARNS FOODS INC. (URBF.QB) ("the Company" or "URBAN BARNS"), today announced collaborative research between Urban Barns and McGill University on CUBIC AGRICULTURE growing practices.

The aim of the research is to further improve the efficiency and production of Urban Barns Cubic Agriculture vegetable and fruit production in urban areas.

The idea of food production in an urban agricultural environment has been proposed by a number of companies but the technology already developed by Urban Barns coupled with McGill food production research and engineering knowledge will allow the Cubic Agriculture system to reach the next level of sustainable food production.

Dr. Mark Lefsrud, McGill's lead researcher on the 5-year project, said, "The major issues to be researched are; energy reduction (light and heat), selection of species and cultivars for this specific growing environment, determining the nutritional improvement of plants grown within the Urban Cubic Growing system with additional focuses on reduced carbon footprint, nutrient recycling, minimal water usage, recyclable product packaging, leading to a sustainable urban agriculture model."

Richard Groome, President of Urban Barns Foods Canada said "We are indeed very excited about our new relationship with McGill's Macdonald Campus and Dr.Lefsrud. As Urban Barns rolls out our proprietary Cubic Farming method world-wide, we look forward to working with McGill's outstanding team of researchers to further develop improved cycle times and crop yields along with adding additional crop types that can be grown in our Cubic Farming systems."
