TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 10, 2022 / ITOCO INC. (OTC PINK:ITMC) is pleased to announce it has acquired 49 % of Colorful Euphoria, Lda.
Colorful Euphoria, Lda is a Portuguese company that operates via joint venture 100 hectares of farm land in the Alentejo region of Portugal. Itoco intends to expand this land position and create an Agro Park focused on advancing a "Soil Rescue Program".
Nopal Cactus are being grown effectively and profitably in this region with a focus on producing Prickly Pear juice concentrate.
Itoco and Colorful Euphoria have mutually developed a program whereby Nopal Cactus is introduced into an area as the first step toward overall land rehabilitation while at the same time creating sustainable profitable farming operations - "Soil Rescue Program".
The roots of the Nopal Cactus help water retention in the soil, thereby creating a crucial first step for other plants to grow. In a relatively short period of time, entire ecosystems can recover as water supplies stabilize.
In addition, programs of this type can create significant Carbon Credits. Nopal Cactus is very effective at removing carbon from the atmosphere permanently.
Itoco is capitalizing on Nopal farming innovations that leverage the Cacti's superb adaptation to dry and arid landscapes, which include fixing carbon dioxide at night and closing the spores (stomata) during the day, thus potentially earning producers carbon credits at an accelerated pace.
Nopal Cactus is able to trap up to 30 tons of carbon dioxide per hectare per year.
The Cactus is also able to offer strong vegetative cover against erosion or desertification while being able to tolerate a wide range of temperatures and to thrive in water limited environments. It is characterized by a wide-spreading fibrous roots system allowing it to access surface water and its succulent stems and pads store large quantities of water per hectare.
Itoco has purchased 49% of the shares of Colorful Euphoria for EUR €5,000,000.00.
