What do you get when you mix a global pandemic, an economic downturn, and a series of extreme weather events? You get a lot of people trying to cope with anxiety and stress. And many people have had to cancel expensive vacations and nights out on the town, so they have money to literally burn — or bake into edibles, or massage onto sore joints.
It’s all led to unprecedented demand for cannabis. In Illinois, for example, recreational marijuana is a “breakout star” in a “hazy economic landscape,” according to CNN. Illinois sales of the drug topped 60 million dollars in the month of July alone, and sales tax revenues for the first half of 2020 were nearly twice the projected amount. Other states are reporting similar spikes in demand.
Indoor cannabis growers are always seeking ways to increase yield, but now it’s more important than ever.
“Our footprint is absolutely maximized. We’re using our space as efficiently as possible.”
– Geoffrey Korff, Galenas founder and CEO
There’s no shortage of advice on how to increase yield, from pruning techniques to lighting. All that advice has merit, but the simplest, most direct route to higher yield is to increase the grow area in your facility.
So how do you get more grow area? You could build an addition, but that’s expensive. In many land-locked facilities expanding isn’t even an option. And in some states, indoor cannabis grow facilities are limited by square footage.
To get more canopy in your existing grow rooms, you need to optimize space horizontally, by eliminating empty aisles between tables. And you need to go vertical to add additional levels of plants. Spacesaver’s GROW Mobile System lets you do just that.
Indoor commercial cannabis growers can increase yield with mobile vertical racking.
The GROW Mobile System eliminates wasted aisle space and creates multiple levels of growing area. By maximizing space, reducing energy use, and improving efficiency, Spacesaver’s mobile vertical racking technology helps create better places to work and grow.
With sturdy steel racks mounted on “carriages” that move along rails in the floor, the GROW vertical racking system allows you to grow more plants in the same space. It’s strong enough to accommodate lighting, irrigation, and even soil-filled pots.
Our partnership with Hawthorne Gardening Co. means you get expert insights from Hawthorne cannabis consultants and one contract with one price on all the systems you need to optimize your facility. All irrigation, lighting, ventilation, and other systems from Hawthorne are compatible with the GROW mobile vertical grow rack system.
