Smart Cannabis Corp. announced that it has secured the contract to expand on a cannabis cultivation site in Guinda, where the company’s primary subsidiary, Next Generation Farming, recently retrofitted eight greenhouses and installed the company’s SMART App.
"The expansion project will include 60,000 square feet of the company’s new version of its “SMART by Design Gutter Connect” series specifically modified to mitigate the threat of airborne hemp seed cross-pollinating with cannabis crops," the team with the company says. "By completion of phase two of this project, there will be 83,000 square feet of greenhouses installed at the site. The ground has been broken and development is underway."
According to the company’s CEO, John Taylor, details are currently being negotiated to implement the company’s portfolio of products and services into the contract.
In February, Smart Cannabis unveiled footage of its nearly 24,000-square-foot cannabis cultivation site. That project involved retrofitting eight 30-by-96 foot greenhouses and installing equipment to ensure optimal yields.
Further, the company has established strategic, direct manufacturing partnerships with Dosatron USA and Dyna-Gro to optimize cultivation outcomes for this and future clients.
According to the company, the entire cultivation site is also equipped with raised beds utilizing the company’s SMART Micro Boilers providing a variable BTU radiant heat. "Warm soil temperatures allow for maximum nutrient absorption by cannabis roots which, in conjunction with the SMART App, aids in greater cannabis yields. The SMART Multi Spectrum LED Cultivation Light is also installed throughout the eight greenhouses," the company concludes.
