In the endless quest to improve efficiencies and boost yields, multi-level cultivation environments have the obvious benefit of allowing for more production and higher yields within the same square footage. However, there are also some drawbacks. Let’s carefully consider the benefits and risks of cultivating in multiple levels prior to facility construction.
The relationship between VPD and temperature & humidity is complex but crucial to creating a balanced environment for indoor cannabis cultivation. Let’s break this relationship down to better understand just how great of an impact it has on your environment and bottom line.
Focusing on improving efficiencies isn’t just the right thing to do–it can help our own bottom line as business owners in a big way. With that in mind, we thought we’d share some of our top tips for improving energy efficiency in your grow.
Many people understand GMP compliance to relate specifically to cleanliness standards, and while that is absolutely part of the equation, it also relates to the actual processes that are undertaken to ensure repeatable manufacturing processes. With heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) design,…
Among the many (many) regulations cultivators are faced with, odor control is often overlooked until well into the construction process. However, because odor control regulations in many municipalities are extremely aggressive, and in most municipalities, odor control complaints can result in large fines and even license revocation, cultivators would do well to emphasize odor control during construction planning…
As we look at every path a cultivation operator takes to success, those paths always seem to lead to one central theme: manufacturing/cultivation process control. Cannabis cultivation continues to evolve into a hybrid of farming and manufacturing. We are producing a product, and like any steel plant or toaster factory or car manufacturing facility, the process must be repeatable to enable successful expansion…
When it comes to managing the climate in a cultivation facility, energy use associated with cultivation lighting is typically considered the biggest challenge to overcome. Lights consume enormous amounts of energy on their own and require the use of even more energy to offset the heat they produce to manage temperatures in the grow room. While this is well understood in the industry, what’s not well understood by many cultivators is how your cultivation lighting also helps you to maintain your environmental parameters and can actually help you save money and energy in the form of assistance with maintaining humidity.
If you’re a small-scale cultivator planning to get big, or a new mega cannabis start-up company in need of assistance in finding one of these rare, specialized cannabis cultivation facility engineering firms with years of success under their belts, we thought it best to help you on your journey to find one.
Test rooms are imperative for commercial cultivators who want to get to the top and stay there. To stay competitive requires the willingness to try new promising growing methods, technology products, amendments and SOP’s especially your very own new innovations. To keep on the cutting edge, you must be willing to experiment and push the envelope by evaluating new options in a controlled way. The most effective way to achieve this, is by setting up a dedicated test room.
