Plant Performance: Understanding KPIs for Growers, Business and Your Retail Brands

Aired Thursday, 29-October, 2020

This free webinar is designed for C-level executives and cultivation teams to better understand the relationship between Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), environmental controls, and cannabis crop performance.

  • Growing environments for peak plant performance, quality, and yields
  • Micro cultivation and craft cannabis in Canada’s expanding marketplace
  • Balance old school growing methodologies with new technologies and hybrid genetics
  • HPS versus LED lighting strategies for consistent production cycles and harvest

Why you should attend: 

  • Evaluate investment and cultivation equipment purchase decisions – and the potential impact on finished products
  • Better understand best practices and SOPs for growing environments to standardize chemical profiles, testing results and label literacy at retail
  • Identify how crop inputs and controls during cultivation influence terpenes, cannabinoids, and quality of dried flower

Duration: 1 Hour
