US (CA): "The new crop steering module empowers growers to produce higher volumes of quality cannabis"

Trym has released a crop-steering module, empowering cultivation businesses to produce higher volumes of quality cannabis through the combination of sensors and data-analytics. 

Crop steering, a long-standing practice in large-scale greenhouse vegetable farming, is the manipulation of a controlled environment to elicit a desired response in a crop. In cannabis cultivation, the desired result is typically higher yields and improved quality.

Trym customer and early adopter, Randy Hansen, Co-founder and COO of Pacific Grove, an indoor craft cannabis producer located in Portland, OR, has yielded exciting results from their first harvest with the new technology. 

"We're always looking to achieve more terpenes and higher THC content in our product, because that's what the Oregon market demands." said Randy. "Since we started crop steering with Trym, it's a night and day difference. Some of the stickiest weed we've seen yet". 

Since launching a METRC integration in 2019, Trym became the first cannabis cultivation software to combine environmental sensor integrations, task management, and compliance tracking together in a single platform. 

A unique attribute of Trym's crop steering module is it's flexible sensor integrations with technology providers Growlink and Trolmaster. "We've focused our offering around flexible integrations, so growers are empowered to pick the hardware that works best for their facility," said Benjamin Wong, Co-founder and COO of Trym. 

Trym's crop-steering functionalities include:

  • Grow Log: a news feed for your grow rooms! View a live stream of everything that's happened in chronological order; such as employee tasks, notes, measurements, and METRC actions. 
  • Flexible sensor integrations: monitor climate and root zone conditions into Trym for real-time visibility into how each plant group is performing.
  • Crop registration: log observations along with photos of your plants for a complete record of each harvest.
  • Customizable graphs: visualize conditions in real-time and look back at historical data for each group of plants.
