A Farmer’s Advice: Solutions to Improve Yields (Immediate Impacts for Facility and Operational Improvements) - Urban-Gro
Sponsored By

In his role at urban-gro, Lucas Targos encounters facilities from small to large, low-tech to high-tech, barely surviving to thriving. Regardless of size or complexity, there are commonalities to cultivation practices and the facilities in which they operate within that are economically competitive and successful in an ever-changing market. This presentation isn’t about one solution or one service but rather a holistic approach to facility/labor management, cultivation operational practices, and utilization of the resources available in the industry. Lucas Targos comes from organic vegetable production, and his background carries over into pragmatic solutions that nearly every grower can adopt. The 30-minute presentation will provide you with solutions that you can implement for immediate improvement in yields, while also providing ideas for longer-term modest investments.

If you feel like you’ve been to one too many presentations where “consultants” know best and dictate unreasonable or inconclusive solutions – this presentation will be refreshing. Farmer to farmer – you’ll get great advice that is practical, actionable, and understandable.
