AppHarvest to reopen listeria-impacted CEA farm in “a few weeks” but could run out of cash “as soon as October”

US-based high-tech greenhouse grower AppHarvest (NASDAQ:APPH) could run out of money as soon as October of this year “absent additional sources of financing,” according to the indoor farming company’s quarterly regulatory report filed on May 10.
