Griffin to Present Cannabis Workshops in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania
Following a successful launch in 2017, Griffin will bring its popular cannabis growers’ workshop back to Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. This year’s program is all new, for commercial marijuana and hemp growers, focusing specifically on crop fertility and nutrition delivery strategies.
The Massachusetts workshop is scheduled for Aug. 27 at the AC Hotel in Worcester. The Pennsylvania workshop is set for Sept. 25 at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster. Each is a half-day program preceding the company’s Grower & Retailer Expos, which are scheduled for Aug. 28-29 and Sept. 26-27, respectively.
“This workshop is designed to help operations maximize both crop quality and profit margins,” said Tami Van Gaal, division leader for controlled environment agriculture at Griffin. “Of the primary consumables in cannabis production, nutrients offer the greatest potential for cost reduction among large-scale commercial growers.”
Each workshop will begin at noon with a catered lunch, followed by seven educational sessions. The program includes seminars presented by Griffin technical services staff as well as experts from Premier Tech Horticulture, Master Plant-Prod, Anderson Injectors and Dramm Corp.
The Griffin cannabis growers’ workshop is suited to growers using both conventional and organic production methods. Advance registration is required to attend. Cost is $129 per person; group discounts are available. Visit www.griffins.com/cgw2018 for details and to register.
