About Polaris Wellness Center LLC
Polaris currently operates a 7,500 square-foot state-of-the-art cultivation and processing facility for lawful cannabis located in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (the “Facility”). With demand for its products escalating rapidly over the past three years, Polaris is upgrading and expanding the growing area in the Facility to 16,500 sq. ft. As part of this expansion, GFS is upgrading the Facility’s water treatment, storage and distribution capabilities to automate, economise and streamline the feeding schedules for its crops.
Global Fertigation Solutions, Inc.
GFS provides automated, precise, real-time batching and dosing of bespoke nutrient recipes on a closed-loop basis for delivery to crops in all agricultural applications throughout their lifecycle (“Fertigation System”). The Fertigation System removes salts, heavy minerals and contaminants from municipal water, supplying an equalised and homogeneous base to which client-specific nutrient recipes are added. The Fertigation System is programmed to batch nutrient blends depending on the stage of the crop’s lifecycle and its feeding requirements. Batch blending is undertaken during the “lights-off” phase of the crop’s lifecycle. The nutrient blend is then sent to standby reservoirs in each of the grow rooms to ensure that all crops may be fed in the first hour of the “lights-on” cycle. Nutrients returned to the standby reservoirs after feeding are delivered to the batch tank for analysis and top-up of additional water and nutrients to meet the next feed cycle requirements before returning to the standby reservoirs. The Fertigation System is fully automated and works on a closed-loop basis (namely, recovery, recycle and recirculate). GFS’s proprietary software has been developed to facilitate remote access, operation and troubleshooting of the Fertigation System.
Polaris Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer, Jim Switzer states, “We are excited to collaborate with Global Fertigation Solutions, Inc. to grow our award winning “Best of Vegas Strain” Head Cheese. After three successful years of growing and research, we have found the GFS automated watering process far exceeds anything else available on the market. No matter the size of facility, we are able to maintain premium quality cannabis while reducing operational costs with Global Fertigation Solutions.”
RotoGro Managing Director, Michael Carli states, “The Polaris purchase order with our wholly-owned subsidiary Global Fertigation Solutions, Inc. highlights our standing as market leaders in technology solutions for the agricultural space. Our team at GFS continues their great work since acquisition, driving sales leads to new purchase orders. Although it is not always feasible to retrofit existing facilities with the RotoGro Hydroponic Gardens, GFS is able to secure sales orders in support of our customers needs across the agricultural space.”
