Second Quarter 2020 Financial and Operational HighlightsThe Company’s financial performance improved over the previous year’s quarter, driven by higher margin data insight solutions, led by the Company’s acquisition of Texas based Better Harvest, and the doubling of farm acres serviced from its data collection division.  For the three-month financial results ended June 30, 2020 (and comparable period ended June 30, 2019):Revenue grew 54% year over year to $1,123,867 in Q2 2020, from $727,973 in Q2 2019
