Gus van der Feltz, chairman FarmTech Society, says: “People need access to safe, affordable and healthy produced food independent of where they live. Controlled Environment Agriculture can help realize this for many millions.”
“Medicinal Cannabis still growing strong”, the theme on Wednesday 10 June also at 16:00pm – 17:30pm (UTC+2). This Webinar Talk will be moderated by Phytonext and Cultivators. Despite COVID-19 and slower regulatory developments the medicinal cannabis market is still growing globally. Experts will give an update about their regional markets, from USA, Canada to Europe and Australia, among others Jenn Ayott and Laust Dam. Also there will be a discussion around all cultivation aspects and the latest developments by participants such as Ridder and Grodan.
Bob Hoban, president & founder Hoban Law Group, his view: “Will the cannabis industry continue to boom? The answer is a resounding yes. We are laying the groundwork for a new global commodity. We are just creating the surface of the cannabis plant's potential, and how its seemingly endless applications will fit into global supply chains across countless verticals. While certain crazes will wax and wane, the future is undoubtedly bright.“
