Pegasus to open hydroponic farm in Florida

Pegasus Agriculture plans to construct a large hydroponic facility in Florida. The company has purchased a 15-year lease on 77 acres of land in the area, with an option to extend the lease by an additional 15 years at the end of the contract.

The move is designed to give the company access to North American markets, in an area that has been plagued by climate change, according to a press release. Pegasus Agriculture’s Managing Director Naveed Hussain expects the development will help the company “realize its international potential.”
