Team Cannabis

Since the authorization of Cannabis in Canada and parts of the United States in 2018, Delphy has been involved in Cannabis cultivation. Universities in Canada and the United States were the first to reach out to Delphy because knowledge and practical information for this relatively new crop was needed. With the start of the “Closed coffeeshop experiment”, it won’t take long before the first legal Cannabis farms will be set up in the Netherlands.

To respond to this market and properly guide the companies involved, Delphy has set up a Cannabis team. Delphy “Team Cannabis” consists of twelve people, who all have their own specialism regarding to Cannabis cultivation. Delphy Team Cannabis contain specialists for propagation, crop protection, climate, fertilization, business plans and technical specialists

(Turn-key) Projects

Delphy provides guidance to various cannabis projects worldwide. To ensure growers that they receive the best advice, Delphy works with a 6-step plan. Once the location and cultivation method are chosen, a functional design will be made in cooperation with the entrepreneur including an accompanying cost overview and business plan. Based on specifications, a tender will be issued among three different greenhouse construction companies. By comparing these offers, the best facility can be realized for the lowest investment. To ensure the construction is carried out according to the quotation, the construction will be supervised continuously. Also the organization of the company will be set up and the people trained. If necessary, an experienced grower is provided in order to achieve the best results in cooperation with the consultant.

Advice on cultivation strategy

Delphy provides cultivation advice and improves the cultivation methods of cannabis growers worldwide. This is done by means of company visits, but thanks to current technology it is also possible to do this remotely. For remote guidance, various crop and climate sensors are used that can be read on a dashboard. By looking at the dashboard on a daily basis, a good insight is obtained of what is going on at the cultivation location. In addition, it serves as a backup should something striking occur. In collaboration with the grower, the data will be analysed and the cultivation strategy optimized to achieve the best results
