About The Grove
The Grove (https://thegrovenv.com/) holds a lawful cannabis license operating in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Order involves a retro-fit and upgrade to The Grove’s current operations as it expands its cultivation facility to a second phase. The solution to be delivered by GFS will be incorporated into The Grove’s existing water treatment capabilities, integrating a new fertigation system into custom table layouts and drains. The GFS system will service both The Grove’s existing operations and its Phase Two expansion.
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.
RotoGro Managing Director, Michael Carli states, “The Grove purchase order is the result of the remarkable efforts of our team at GFS. The sales lead for this order emanated from our booth at the recent MJ Biz Conference in Nevada in November of 2018. The success of the MJ Biz Conference and our register of sales leads places GFS in an excellent position for a productive and profitable year ahead.”
