How medical cannabis research indicates the growing need for plant-based research

The demand for cannabis is increasing exponentially but unfortunately the same cannot be said for the research to accompany that demand. As acceptance increases and more people turn to cannabis to treat a variety of medical symptoms, it seems there is more confusion than ever which is largely due to a lack of resources and government funding to provide quality research that provides information beyond mere anecdotal evidence.

Advantages of growing hemp in a greenhouse

Here is a list of potential solutions to common problems that greenhouse growers can resolve by improving existing structures:

How you can conserve water in your greenhouse facilities

Water is the life source of horticulture so it’s crucial that we in the industry do what we can to protect and appreciate what it accomplishes for our livelihood.

World Water Day also advocates for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

In its 25th year, the theme for today’s World Water Day is “Nature for Water”, the idea being that we explore nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century.

Protect Your Crops from the Elements with High Tunnel Crop Protectors

Although we have generally experienced a milder winter so far, in the new year we can expect the weather to turn much colder and field crop farmers are likely to be looking for solutions to help protect their yields.

High Tunnels like the GGS Crop Protector are used by growers for this very reason. Though not a load bearing house ( ie. It is not designed to hold snow or support a crop ), these crop protectors are designed to cover crops in shoulder seasons when frost damage can dramatically affect a farmer’s bottom line.
