Ancient Tree Crop Provides Compelling Investment Opportunity
(PR Web) Mason & Morse Farmland Group Partners with TerViva Regarding Pongamia Projects
A California company has come up with a compelling twist on farmland investing for private clients and institutional investors focusing on real assets. This farmland investment model, however, is considerably more proactive in driving total returns than traditional “buy and hold” models. Since 2009, TerViva Inc. has been establishing acreage in Texas, Florida, Arizona and Hawaii in a tree crop called pongamia.
…The twist in the conventional farmland investing model is that this tree can thrive not only on marginal soils (as in its native homeland) where food crops struggle for yield, but it can also be a perfect replacement crop for the thousands of acres of abandoned Florida citrus land.
TerViva has approached Mason & Morse Farmland Group regarding investor interest in pongamia projects. TerViva’s minimum project size is 500 acres and will assist in a practically turnkey project. TerViva can supply the projects with their elite genetics as well as secure the off-take at harvest. Two of the largest citrus growers in Florida are available to act as to project’s operator for planting, maintenance, and harvesting. Mason & Morse Farmland Group will source the Florida land for investors interested in a diversification like this. READ MORE
