CINCINNATI, Ohio — Prospiant, the agtech business unit of Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROCK), today announced the second part of its series of webinars designed to help cannabis growers learn strategies that will help them to build a thriving cannabis cultivation business.
This extended webinar series for growers will kick off on Thursday, November 10 at 2 p.m. EST with the webinar, “Cannabis Greenhouse Construction Process,” which will provide an overview of how to plan a successful outdoor cannabis greenhouse construction project and circumvent the typical complications that can arise. Seven new monthly webinars will follow it until June 2023.
Aiming to provide attendees with an in-depth understanding of the steps growers need to take to drive success of their small or large cannabis business, the webinar series will cover key factors that affect the growth cycle of a cannabis crop and provide critical information about creating the best growing environment for the crop — whether a cannabis greenhouse, hybrid space or indoor grow facility. Several topics will cover the additional equipment that is needed within each unique greenhouse operation in order to achieve success.
“Prospiant is offering additional webinars in our educational series, through mid-2023, in order to provide growers with the best resources and information to manage challenges cultivators face today and position them for resilience and success in their individual businesses,” said John Burgoon, solutions architect at Prospiant, who is facilitating the webinars. “Beyond building the greenhouse or warehouse to house the cannabis crop, there are other factors and equipment that need to be considered for a successful operation, and we will cover those areas.”
