Grodan's First Cannabis Trial Based in North America
Grodan and F1Seedtech, two innovative players in the horticulture industry have joined forces once again to conduct truly innovative cannabis cultivation research at the CRIC Labs (CRIC) in Montreal. These ongoing trials will explore various aspects of cannabis cultivation, including lighting, irrigation and climate management strategies, highlighting the potential for Grodan stone wool solutions and F1 hybrid cannabis seed now and in the future.
Our latest trials at CRIC Labs will build upon the collaborative study we, Grodan and F1Seedtech, previously conducted at the Wageningen University & Research (WUR) in the Netherlands earlier this year. Following the completion of that study, we uncovered three exciting discoveries:
- The total production achieved with F1 hybrid seeds can reach 6 kg/m2 (1.23 lb/ft2) of dried flower annually when extrapolated to 5.5 crop cycles per year.
- The flowers grown from F1 hybrid seeds had higher THC levels of 29%.
- Showed more consistency between production batches.
