RII Releases HVAC & Lighting Best Practices Guides For Cannabis Growers

By January 30, 2020No Comments


Cannabis cultivators are facing cost pressures that require them to operate their production facilities more efficiently. Yet they don’t know who to trust. So Resource Innovation Institute assembled some of the most experienced voices in the industry to develop the first peer reviewed best practices in lighting and HVAC, which will be released at MJBizCon’s Association Day. The advice in the Guides is also relevant to cultivation of other crops grown in controlled environments. The Guides will be released at MJBizCon Vegas’ Associations Day.
