Toronto based CO2 GRO will install a Commercial Feasibility CO2 Delivery Solutions VCO2 system at Canbud’s Ontario hemp greenhouse dedicated to enhancing mother plant growth regeneration and plant health to complement Canbud’s proprietary clonal system.
The Feasibility will take place in a portion of a 2,000 sq. ft. hoop house and will last for a minimum of 3 months. There are eight hoop houses on site for a total of 16,000 sq. ft. of mother plants cultivation and clones acclimatization prior to transplanting outdoors. The Feasibility’s objectives are to measure hemp biomass production and branching regeneration, as well as the effectiveness of CO2 Delivery Solutions’ Perimeter Protection benefits. The mother plants will be continuously stripped of biomass for use as clones to be transplanted on Canbud’s 54 acres outdoor hemp field.
According to John Archibald, CO2 GRO’s CEO, “The mother plants market is yet another application vertical for our CO2 Delivery Solutions to add value for growers. It complements our recent entry into the hemp seed greenhouse market announced in April 2020. By extending the application of our technology to as many parts of the value plant growth cycle as possible, we are able to fulfill our company’s mission of accelerating the growth of all value plants safely and profitably."
