Organization, Flexibility and Rapid Response – the Key Elements in a Medical Cannabis Growing Project.
By: IsraelAgri Cannabis 2020,2nd edition, 2019, ( pp.10-11 ) – Nimrod Regev
Over the course of the last year, NaanDanJain established water, irrigation, drainage and climate
control and automation systems in 14 different projects for growing medical cannabis in Israel and worldwide. This article will focus on execution and installation, including preservation and operation
of the system, technical support and auxiliary crop systems.
According to Nimrod Regev, Medical Cannabis Projects Manager at NaanDanJain: “In every project we meet different customers with different needs and different specifications , However, they all share strong motivation and an inspiring.”
Our years of experience in many installations taught us that it’s important to maintain good collaboration
between all partners in the installation – vendors, greenhouse builders, electrical contractors, etc., and that a common project management effort can save both time and money. We have also learned along the years that in the establishment of a project we may be required to make changes due to professional considerations related to the crop, which changes throughout the project. Since medical cannabis is a developing field, there are always new ideas that lead our customers to make changes that demand flexibility.
We understand the reality in which our customers and us work and therefore it’s important for us to provide the best possible answer to each customer. We work very transparently. Rapid response time is the name of the game so that the installation goes smoothly.”
“During and after an installation, I tend to visit the site frequently, whether to supervise or to ensure that the project is running as expected. We believe this is extremely important.
An integral part of the work with customers in medical cannabis projects is their feedback – either about the system during its implementation, or about Green-Leaf, our new software for managing medical cannabis cultivation in green houses. Green- Leaf was specifically developed to ensure absolute and rapid
climate control and automation, which are critical components in the growth of medical cannabis.
Nimrod also tells us about two additional systems used by cannabis growers, and we see how market demand for them is increasing: The first is Real-Time Management (RTM), which provides real-time data about the drain in the irrigation system.
The second system is Rootsense, an autonomous system of tensiometers that provides real-time data about the contents of the water in the roots system.
NaanDanJain continues to invest in R&D in many areas – water enrichment (with oxygen or additional components), plant protection (an automatic system for the automatic protection of plants from diseases), and treatment of drain water and its recycling into an irrigation system. They recently included the NUF system, which is showing excellent results, and are also investing in the development of aeroponic Irrigation systems.
We ask Nimrod what the future holds.
“It appears that this is the beginning of a new era. There’s no doubt that the requirement for high technological levels in the growth of cannabis and the accuracy this crop requires are challenging, and they are what enable us to continue developing innovative ideas. At the same time, our customers are daring and think out of the box, and we’re happy to join them in their journey.” We invite you to learn more about our various systems.
