Get The Most Out Of Your Cultivation Facility

Gro iQ is a Data Platform for cannabis producers that eliminates guesswork, so they can produce more and scale production.

 

AI For Precision AG

Understand how your grow facility operates with Gro iQ

Ecosystem Sensors + Powerful Analytics 

1 Grow-Cycle ROI

Use Cases

Scientifically model environmental systems, facility design & cultivation methods to determine production capacity

Room Average

  • Ecosystem average Temp, RH, VPD are close to target

  • Multi-tier data shows 21% spread between min and max of different parameters

Time in Target

  • Multi-tier Time in Target analytics show parameters in target <10% of time during lights on

  • Reduce ranges thru HVAC timing controls

  • Yield improvement 10%

  • $1M annualized for 10k ft2 canopy

Room Average

  • Ecosystem average Temp, RH, VPD are close to target

  • Multi-tier data shows 21% spread between min and max of different parameters

Time in Target

  • Multi-tier Time in Target analytics show parameters in target <10% of time during lights on

  • Reduce ranges thru HVAC timing controls

  • Yield improvement 10%

  • $1M annualized for 10k ft2 canopy

MicroClimates

Before Gro iQ

  • Cultivation team suspected they had micro-climate issues, but no data to assess

With Gro iQ

  • Visualize Microclimates by Location, Duration  & Height

  • Low-cost airflow modifications to remediate & track

  • Compare multiple rooms to discover unique microclimates in each room

  • Yield improvement 15%

$1.5M annualized for 10k ft2 canopy

Time In Target

Room Average

  • Ecosystem average Temp, RH, VPD are close to target

  • Multi-tier data shows 21% spread between min and max of different parameters

Time in Target

  • Multi-tier Time in Target analytics show parameters in target <10% of time during lights on

  • Reduce ranges thru HVAC timing controls

  • Yield improvement 10%

  • $1M annualized for 10k ft2 canopy

DLI / Lighting

Understand what your cultivation facility can produce - prior to buildout

Before Gro iQ

  • New cultivation team took over operations with existing infrastructure (lights, HVAC, Dehu etc.)

  • Team thought they were hitting PPFD & DLI targets

With Gro iQ

  • Current lights ~20% below PPFD and DLI targets. Leverage light measurement + data to inform:

    • Quantification of PPFD and DLI Gap
    • Gap in yield vs. target

    • Gap in revenue vs. target

    • Opportunity for supplemental or retrofit

  • Each single % point under target PPFD/DLI represents a 1% percent yield loss

  • Yield improvement 20%
