New video technology will revolutionize farming quality control.

DeSoto, KS – KMC Brands announced today a new partnership with Lenexa KS-based Digital Ally, Inc.

The two companies have agreed to a five-year exploratory venture to develop a validation program that ensures that all of the industrial hemp grown and processed by America’s Hemp Academy is certified and traceable from start to finish.

Tracking the process from the farmer who plants the seed, to the processor that makes the oils and by-products to the retailer or distribution channel – the end consumers will know exactly where their hemp-based product was grown and have the ability to trace the production process, thereby legitimizing the hemp farming industry in the state of Kansas.

“We are pleased to bring our cutting-edge technology to Kansas farmers and their educators, and hopefully eventually to farmers all across America,” says Stanton Ross, Chairman and CEO of Digital Ally. “It’s rewarding to be able to embark on this project in partnership with KMC Brands, another Kansas City-based company with vision, passion and commitment to the growth of the Hemp industry.”

Whether it is a consumable, a textile or health and wellness product, the companies will produce a traceable video to validate its authenticity.

Working together, the companies are launching a technology that can validate and document the entire process in all aspects of farming. This is a watershed moment for US farmers and related industries, as the documentation process allows for a quality control guarantee like nothing currently available on the market.

Another benefit of this anticipated technology is that it may be the answer that Law Enforcement agencies are looking for as it relates to regulating Hemp farming and production. This program can ensure that the products being distributed and transported across the country are done so in appropriate and legal manners and that the crop is certified.

“The staff at KMC Brands and its subsidiary, America’s Hemp Academy, is proud to launch this initiative with the team at Digital Ally. Their success in the field of video technology is unparalleled, and to be able to help bring that to American farmers is beyond rewarding,” says Joe Bisogno, CEO of KMC Brands.

The beta launch has already begun and a full research launch is intended for March of 2020 after the beta results following this year’s hemp crops are reviewed.
