Cannabis Cultivation Conference (3/13/2018)

Prized French wines are aged for years in oak barrels, as are famous Whiskies.  Tobacco is air-, fire-, flue-, or sun-cured.  Cannabis, however, is quickly dried and stored in a plastic bucket.  Little research is available to help cultivators understand and optimize the cannabis curing process.  Outco is rising to this challenge with the help of Nate Controls.

Dr. Allison Justice, VP of Cultivation and Dr. Markus Roggen, VP of Extraction for Outco will present their latest findings on optimizing the process for drying and curing cannabis.  Come see the presentation on March 13th, 2018 at the Oakland Marriott City Center in Oakland, California.

Air Sensors developed by Nate Controls were provided to facilitate this valuable research.  Since the sensors are wireless and battery-powered, they could be placed inside the sealed curing vessels while enabling constant monitoring of the air temperature, humidity, pressure, carbon dioxide and oxygen levels.

CannaCon, Seattle (2/15/2018)

Nate Controls will demonstrate the smart L2 Grow Light and cloud-based recipe management software at the CannaCon conference Feb 15-17th, 2018 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington.  Our environmental sensors and automation solutions will also be on display.

Indo Expo, Denver (1/27/2018)

Come visit us as booth J41 at the Indo Expo at the Denver Mart in Denver, Colorado on January 27 & 28th, 2018.  We’ll be showing the new smart L2 Grow Light and our cloud-based recipe management system.  In addition to our air temperature and humidity sensor, we will be demonstrating our new carbon dioxide, oxygen, and pressure sensor.  We also will have wiring panels using our controllers on display.

New Case Study Shows 15% Yield Improvement (1/7/2018)

Nate released a new cannabis case study where the L2 Grow Light showed a 15% yield improvement and 9% THC potency boost when used during the flowering phase vs. a 1000W single-ended HPS grow light.  This resulted in $1,500 of additional profit per year per light for this Colorado cultivator.  The yield increase is expected to be twice as high when the L2 is also used for both the vegetation and flowering phase rather than just for flowering.  Click here to download the case study.

CannaGrow Expo, Denver (10/28/2017)
