AEssenseGrows, an AgTech company specializing in automated precision aeroponic platforms for high-yield plant production, announced that Alberta-based Rocky Mountain Marijuana has selected its AEtrium grow system to enter Canada’s blossoming cannabis market.
RMMI chose the AEtrium system, including the recently introduced AErix grow lights, for phase 1 of its main building, located in the County of Newell, Alberta, Canada, where the company will focus on the production, cultivation and sale of cannabis in various forms. RMMI anticipates producing over 6,000 kilograms of cannabis once its phase 1 main building is at capacity. The Newell property has the potential to expand up to 330,000 square feet of equivalent cultivation area yielding 150,000 kilograms of cannabis annually.
“We have entered, without question, an intensely competitive new industry. RMMI has adopted an approach to production that’s grounded in science and technology, ‘blending science with nature’,” said Earl Connors, founder, president and CEO of RMMI. “With the AEssenseGrows system, we can maximize production yields and product quality as a low-cost producer, while minimizing risk.”
The AEssenseGrows AEtrium system delivers sensor-driven automation to enhance the inherent benefits of aeroponics. The company's Guardian Grow Manager central management software monitors grow conditions 24/7 and, if needed, automatically adjusts key variables such as lighting and nutrients to maintain optimal conditions.
“RMMI’s strategy of bringing together plant science and technology makes it a perfect fit for AEssenseGrows,” said Robert Chen, AEssenseGrows’ president and CEO. “Our automated precision system delivers the controls needed to ensure the consistent, high-quality yields that are so important in this highly competitive new market.”
