Our supply chain partners win because we drive value to their businesses where they need it: Sales and Business Development. We don’t have to battle the market each year to buy the lowest price hemp to maximize our profits for the cur- rent harvest. Our farmers are the same each season and we win together.
- Simplified single source ordering for a full suite of products
- White label and bulk wholesale offerings
- Just-in-time delivery to free up working capital
- Consistency of product quality and surety of supply
We believe in having hands-on influence with our vertical supply partners and having redundancy in our supply chain so that we can de-risk our supply.
FarmCeutica has partnered with SmartGlyph/TruStrain to. deliver a custom solution to the track-and-trace requirements of our supply chain. Novel Food regulations in the UK and other jurisdictions internationally, require details on every step of the process from the seed being planted at the greenhouse, to the bottle of finished extract sold to our customers. SmartGlyph provides the backbone software architecture to provide this information to our manufacturing customers. If our manufacturing customers choose to, they can continue using the technology for their finished products and packaging processes. The mutual benefit of this technology is that each of our supply chain partners have access to the data from all finished products. Data is critical to winning and retaining customers and increasing market share.
With greenhouse technology, seasonal limitations on hemp harvests no longer apply. We can therefore produce CBD-rich hemp in greenhouse environments designed for year-round cultivation. The technology used includes light deprivation and supplemental LED lighting to ensure perpetual harvests.
With smart technologies like automated lighting systems, greenhouse controllers, and even robotics, we are benefitting from reduced labor requirements and greater control over cli- mate, temperature, irrigation, lighting and more.
EXTENDED LIFE OF HARVEST
Hemp is normally planted in the early spring and harvested in the early fall. With a greenhouse, the growing season can be extended by mimicking the ideal growing conditions, allowing for greater yields for longer.
REDUCED HARMFUL EFFECTS OF PESTS
Pests such as flea beetles, caterpillars, and rodents are common and can destroy entire crops. Greenhouses provide a great line of defense against indoor pests like aphids and spider mites.
PROTECT AGAINST WEATHER
A greenhouse can protect plants during the winter months and be taken down for the normal growing season. Besides safeguarding your hemp plants from hail damage, you can also prevent the ground inside the greenhouse from becoming overly saturated. In the summer, a greenhouse can help shield your plants from direct sunlight and keep the soil from drying out. Proper ventilation is a key component of any successful greenhouse grow.
Light deprivation is used to mimic the lighting cycles of the growing season. When used in recreational cannabis cultivation, light deprivation has been known to reduce grow time and double harvests.
INCREASED REGULATION AHEAD
FarmCeutica believes that greater control afforded by a greenhouse growing environment enhances supply-chain traceability. If there is a problem with a lot, it needs to be able to be traced back to the seed.
