How TSRgrow's Advanced LED Lighting Solutions Help Bountiful Farms Grow the "Best Grass in Mass!"
The adult-use cannabis market can be quite a challenge, growers have to deal with a crop that is susceptible to the slightest change in the growing environment to be successful. Growing different cultivars in the same room that all require different environmental requirements can also be extremely challenging. However, Bountiful Farms, an award winning cannabis cultivation company in Lakeville, MA has found the perfect way to make that happen. They use TSRgrow’s advanced LED lighting solutions. TSRgrows integrated systems give them control of their crops with the ability to map out zones and control lighting and growing environment for each cultivar growing in their facility.
“If you love what you do, you don’t necessarily work,” says Zach Taylor, General Manager of Cultivation at Bountiful Farm. “We sacrifice a lot for these plants, and this is what makes it a craft: putting that extra attention into the details. It’s not about being a master grower, it's about constantly learning and evolving: in this constant flux industry.” This has been the first year Zach is growing with LED lighting and Bountiful Farms chose TSRgrow as their supplier for a reason. “First and foremost, customer service brought me to TSRgrow,” he says. “On top of that, they are not new to the LED space. A lot of successful companies in the cannabis industry have learned their trades elsewhere and applied that knowledge to cannabis; that’s what TSRgrow has done.”
The key elements of TSRgrow advanced LED lighting solutions are the flexibility and modularity of their system. “Our goal is to give growers the tools they need to fine-tune their recipes and dial in the lights, nutrients, CO2, etc.,” says Mikhail Sagal, president of TSRgrow. “Controls and integrated solutions are where we see everything going in the cannabis industry: being able to integrate everything together and trying to take all the unnecessary elements out of the growing space.”
At the core of TSRgrow’s advanced solutions are their remote power technology. “One of the things we focus on is bringing the heat out of the grow,” Mikhail continues. “You put all of the power in the server room, and all that heat is out of the grow environment. This also gives us the ability to digitally monitor and control the different lights and groups. From an installation perspective, the Bountiful Farm’s server room is top notch.”
Controlling the Grow Environment
The growing process with advanced controls has given Bountiful Farms an increase in resins in their recent cannabis harvest. “We grow certain cultivars for resin production, and other cultivars for flowers,” Zach remarks. “For resin production, we have filled a room with 18 different strains, but throughout each of them, we have seen an increase of up to 1-1.5% in resin, which is huge. Our concentrates department asked what we did differently in this grow room to increase the resin because they saw the difference.”
Having the ability to control every fixture aligns well with the requirements for energy efficiency in the state of Massachusetts. “The energy efficiency clause is a huge hurdle,” says Zach. TSRgrow helped Bountiful Farms integrate their system to ensure the lights are always on to integrate energy redundancy in the facility. With the additional monitoring and control capabilities Bountiful Farms can ensure compliance and GMPs with their TSRgrow advanced LED Lighting Solutions.
Bountiful Farms is excited to be working with TSRgrow and looking forward to future harvests and increased yields.
