Keep money in your pocket and build community at our Efficient Yields cultivation workshops

There’s nothing like RII’s Efficient Yields cultivation workshops. Led by growers, thick with technical content, priced to enable attendance by cultivators, production team members, owners/operators and design and construction partners.

Efficient Yields workshops feature leading cultivators and knowledgeable experts from the supply chain, yet are never pay-to-play and always provide commercial-free venues where everyone in the room can take part in dialogues that are shaping industry best practices.

Reach out if you’d like to attend or sponsor!
