SpeakEasy Cannabis Club has started preparations for the 2021 growing season with a goal to achieve a 100% increase in yield over the 2021 growing season.
"SpeakEasy's 2020 harvest was validation of the companies vision, the Geen's generational agriculture experiences paired with some of the Kootenay's best cannabis growers was a recipe for success," the SpeakEasy team explains. "While many cannabis companies took a different approach, SpeakEasy's site selection, the favorable climate in Rock Creek, the genetics crafted for the region, and a dedicated farming work ethic yielded a historical 72,000 KG in flower and biomass. The bumper harvest also delivered a quality crop achieving flower potency 15-18 % THC and with an associated cost of production of approximately $0.04/gram."
Founder, Marc Geen states, "There are countless steps in preparing and planting a field of cannabis, learning and hopefully improving based on experiences from the previous years is key. We took a huge leap planting our outdoor field last year and learned a ton, we are all excited about taking that success and building off of it to set another record harvest this year."
How SpeakEasy Plans to Achieve 140,000 KG in 2021
The company has laid out a plan to achieve the 100% yield increase they aim for. "The 2021 growing season will see a number of changes from the successful 2020 season that management expects will lead to increased yields, including increased planting density, physically larger plants during planting, additional space utilized, and additional varieties," they explain.
Last growing season, SpeakEasy was limited to 3,500 square feet of usable vegetive grow space. "Our preparation space has climbed a staggering 1128% to 43,000 square feet, allowing SpeakEasy to grow larger healthier plants compared to last season. On top of that, we will also plant earlier than in 2020, as delays in the regulatory process forced us to start later than anticipated, last season."
Finally, the company will be applying the knowledge gained through the data collected from last year. "We will continue the optimization of the different growing styles into the 2021 season to increase yield output efficiency."
