Keynote Announcement – Dr. Jonathan Cachat: Resource Efficiency & the Future of Cannabis Cultivation


Resource Efficiency & the Future of Cannabis Cultivation
with Dr. Jonathan Cachat, PhD (CEO, CCV Research) 

The wholesale value cannabis flower has steadily been on the decline, yet farmers remain the only part of the supply chain to buy at retail and sell at wholesale. As regulations take hold and taxes grow, the cultivation market segment is facing smaller and smaller margins. Recent developments in greenhouse & indoor cultivation techniques & technology are fueled by this need to reduce costs, and many with the added bonus of reducing environmental impact. This session will highlight recent innovations in the cultivation vertical designed to help farmers get the edge necessary to compete in our rapidly growing industry. Reduce your margins, improve quality and shrink your facilities environmental footprint.
