Cultivation is Complex
Cultivation management sounds simple when you are thinking in terms of lovingly tending one plant or a small garden. But when you have hundreds or thousands of living plants to manage for commercial cannabis cultivation, the complexity quickly becomes overwhelming. Software for growers must create
the structure that allows you to manage this complexity so that your plants and business can bloom and flourish.
Several tasks and variations add to the complexity of growing commercial cannabis:
- Regulatory requirements for Seed to Sale tracking of each plant from its first planting, through growth, distribution and retail sale, mean every plant must be tracked individually.
- Variances in the way care and environment affect different strains of plants – food, lighting, trimming, watering, CO2 and other factors may have to be adjusted for each strain.
- Environmental challenges may affect the strains differently also – some plants may be more vulnerable to pests or fungi than other strains, for example.
- Market demand can shift, with some strains becoming more or less popular than others, increasing or decreasing profitability of specific plants.
- Employees vary in how long it takes them to complete specific tasks or in how much ongoing training they need.
The right cannabis grow software meets the challenge of this complex growing environment. Great cannabis software clarifies your goals, streamlines, organizes and tracks your plants, employees, procedures, and profits.
