Attend new cultivation-related sessions

Small-scale growers, large-scale cultivators and the operators in between can all expect in-depth content exploring the challenges of cannabis cultivation and how others in the field are working to stay ahead in this dynamic industry. At MJBizCon, you can expect to learn from experts in cultivation, network with other growers from across North America and explore the newest technology being employed in commercial grows.

From the Ground Up: Launching a Cannabis Cultivation Operation

Ready. Set. Grow!
First things first though. Launching a cultivation operation requires crucial considerations (hint: it is not the same as your garage grow). Those looking to get their cultivation business up and running need be aware of what to expect when getting started in this highly regulated and competitive market. In this session, a seasoned grower will provide you with all you need from the ground up.

What you will learn:

– What to expect when assessing startup and operational costs for a cannabis grow.
– Facility design considerations including equipment selection based on what your goals are.
– Tips for building your team and getting to operation.
– Q&A at the end with someone who has been there and done it (sucessfully!)

Creating Solutions: How Experimentation and Automation Can Improve Efficiencies in Your Grow

‘Work smarter, not harder,’ as the saying goes. Cultivation is a labor-intensive process that operators understand all too well so managing your efficiency is key to cut down on labor and costs.

What you will learn:

– Techniques and processes from traditional agriculture being adopted by cannabis cultivators to expedite certain processes.
– Labor and staffing tips to keep costs under control
– Deciding on what tasks can be automated and associated costs to consider.
– Q&A at the end

Operation Green: Environmental and Sustainability Practices

Sustainability. You hear about it. You read about it. What does it even mean? How do you achieve it?
Cannabis operators don’t typically have the best rep for being very green when it comes to water and energy usage or waste. But we got you! Initiatives to implement sustainable cannabis operations are becoming increasingly more accessible and this session will take you through what you can do in your grow, step by step.

What you will learn:

– Tips for how to incorporate sustainable, carbon-reducing strategies in your operations without breaking the bank.
– How to measure and track industry-standard KPIs on energy, emissions, water and waste.
– How good environmental practices can help increase your bottom line.
– Q&A at the end
