An Interview with Nimrod Regev,
Cannabis growing project manager at NaanDanJain

More than a year ago, requests began to arrive at NaanDanJain’s planning department, for medical cannabis growing projects.
The projects varied greatly in content and character, whether from greenhouse companies
that expected to be integrated into the turn-key project offered by companies, private customers that ran the project on their own and wanted
NaanDanJain’s partial or full planning guidance (including consultation), or customers who wanted a turn-key project.
Initial steps in the planning process were accompanied by uncertainty:
on one hand, questions arose about regulation, such as what is the GAP standard ? Health Ministry requirements?
“Initially,” says Nimrod Regev, “we encountered very different requests that required different solutions, bringing us to plan a flexible project that
adapts itself over a longer time, taking into account changes expected to occur in the growing method resulting from altered operational considerations.
“It’s important to understand that once greenhouses are built and pipelines are already installed,
it’s harder to execute changes, and therefore we need to take into account
future changes in the field even years ahead. It’s important to create reliable solutions and to maintain continuity of irrigation.
The cheaper solution is not always the best or safest.”
Over the past year, the company has sold and set up more than 10 project systems in Israel and abroad.
All medical cannabis projects meet the GAP Standard, and NDJ sells irrigation products for all types and stages of growing:
drip hosing for large plants or micro-solutions for rooting or hardening.
The company’s extensive list of products can be adapted to any requirement.
NDJ has participated in projects including an R & D nursery, a medical cannabis project, as well as commercial companies.
Non-agricultural companies have also entered the cannabis field, so customers must be careful to choose the right company.
“NaanDanJain,” notes Nimrod Regev, “is among the few companies capable of supplying the gamut of solutions under one roof –
from planning to end solutions, with high reliability, and of course with attention to customer needs, throughout planning, erecting,
and also being available to the customer after the project has been set up and running.”
