Advancing Cannabis Cultivation Technology Summit goes Virtual

With several sold-out events under its belt, the ACT Summit is now going virtual by offering free webinars for cannabis cultivators around the globe. “The exclusive live ACT Summit that our group has now hosted for 3 years in Las Vegas has been very popular, so it’s now time to bring this knowledge to the rest of the world. This pandemic has forced us to rethink how we should deliver our educational content.” explains Henry Vangameren of Priva. “Our live full-day events have drawn a lot of attention and attendance but with travel bans in place and trade shows being cancelled, we had to pivot with new ideas so going virtual with webinars was a logical choice”.

The ACT Summit consists of industry suppliers with deep rooted horticultural histories who provide education on the latest cutting-edge technologies and best practices. “This is an educational platform to help cultivators improve operational efficiently and increase overall profitability in today’s competitive cultivation landscape” explains Cinnamon Cantwell of Grodan. “We’re very excited as these webinars will be offered free of charge to help bring this knowledge to a much broader audience of cultivators”.

This first 1-hour webinar from the ACT Summit group will be presented on July 28th by Grodan and Priva. They will share best practices from around the globe for water use efficiency and recirculation in commercial cannabis growing facilities to ensure healthy plants, sustainable growing practices and a healthier bottom line.

During this webinar, important topics will include knowledge of irrigation recirculation infrastructure, best practices for water management, and how data driven solutions can increase production efficiency while minimizing the water footprint. 

Key takeaways for attendees:

  • Key components for recirculation systems
  • Ensuring safe re-use of return water
  • Integration of key components into automated irrigation system
  • Best practices for substrate management in recirculating systems
  • Using root-zone data to increase irrigation efficiency 
  • Influencing root-zone environments on a daily and season basis to improve water management and minimize drain
  • Understanding substrate water distribution and how nutrients and fertilizer move through blocks and slabs
