The First Six are in the BooksBy Tim Hodson

Welcome to July!

It’s hard to believe, but 2019 is now half over.

So, how are you holding up so far? Is 2019 everything you expected it to be?

How have the first six months of the year treated you and your business?  Has Mother Nature been kind to your region or have you been in a never-ending battle with rain and temperatures?

What surprises have you encountered since the beginning of the year? What does the rest of the year look like? Have you had to make any changes or alteration in your original 2019 game plan?

Drop me a line at [email protected] and let me know what you think about 2019.

Less Than Two Weeks

I wanted to remind you that there are less than two weeks until GPN’s second Cannabis and Hemp Conference.

It will take place in Columbus, Ohio on July 13, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Columbus.

This one-day conference is designed to provide growers with the latest insight, tips and guidelines for growing success in the emerging cannabis and hemp market.

During the daylong conference attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about:

  • Planning a Cultivation Facility
  • Cannabis Growing Techniques
  • Production Considerations for Industrial Hemp
  • Managing Pests & Diseases

At the end of the day, all of the speakers will participate in a panel discussion to talk about the issues facing cannabis and hemp growers.

If you are considering growing cannabis or hemp, this is a great investment of your time and money.

Seats are filling up fast so if you want to attend you should register soon.

Registration is only $129 per person which includes all sessions and lunch.

The conference is sponsored by Nexus Greenhouse Systems, Svensson, Arborjet, Berger, Bioline AgroScience,  Greenworld, Marrone Bio Innovations, Beaver Plastics, Heliospectra and Cannabis Product News.
