CHICAGO, Jan. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Epazz, Inc. (OTC: EPAZ), a leading provider of blockchain cryptocurrency mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions, has announced that the company filed a provisional patent for a new device using smartphone technology such as an iPhone or Android to measure the growth rate from hemp plants. The device is attached to the smartphone, and on the back of the phone will be a series of lasers which will act as a basal area factor and dendrometer.
The device uses the smartphone camera in order to track and display the growth rate of the assigned plant on the screen of the smartphone. The user will be able to log the growth of the plant and find out if the environment needs to be adjusted in order to improve the growth factor of the plant. This technology would automate the monitor and tracking of hemp plants. The patent also covers the use of attachments on live video feeds and a cloud application for larger facilities.
Epazz Inc. will use ZenaPay’s Plant Tracker app, cannabis compliance software, which can be modified in order to comply with the new U.S. Farm Law rules and regulations about Industrial Hemp. The app tracks plants from seed to harvest with the first version providing an easy way for growers to monitor the different varieties of plants they harvest.
Hemp is nearly identical to marijuana, once American farmers are able to grow hemp legally in the U.S., they will need a software to track the plant and provide data to the U.S. government. According to Business Insider, Industrial hemp is expected to be a $1 billion industry.
Epazz CEO, Shaun Passley, Ph.D., states the following, “We are a direct beneficiary of the move by the Federal Government to legalize hemp. As such, we are working on updating the plant tracking software of our holding; ZenaPay Inc., to meet the needs of this new market that we expect to dominate. Very few companies have our technical capabilities coupled with quality control to even come close to our system.”
