This story originally appeared on Marijuana Venture As cannabis growers try to improve efficiencies in their cultivation space, many are looking toward new technology to optimize their operation and boost profits. Facilities in the United States have grown in size and production scale, and because of this, growers have been borrowing potentially helpful techniques from other horticulture industries around the world. For the last couple years, cannabis growers in the United States have regularly adopted techniques used by Dutch flower and greenhouse producers.
These Dutch facilities produce on a massive scale, and to make it as profitable as possible, they have integrated new technology to streamline the production process and reduce costs. One piece of technology that is slowly becoming more prevalent is mobile benching systems. A mobile bench or mobile container system makes managing a large grow operation much easier, and it has the potential to become a key part of top-tier cultivation facilities, due to its ability to help produce a steady, consistent supply and superior end product.
How to Grow a Cannabis Farming Business in the Blazing Marijuana Economy
With mobile bench systems, the tabletop — or container — is separate from the support structure, and this allows the crop to be easily automated and moved throughout the facility as needed. By integrating these systems, cannabis growers can reduce labor requirements and create a more efficient grow space, which, most importantly, can lead to a lower cost per pound and increased profits.
