“Full control over your crop and crop yields in a single integrated system”
The demand for cannabis for medicinal use is growing rapidly, but its cultivation involves a number of challenges for growers. Operating costs are high, partly due to high energy consumption, and cannabis is a vulnerable crop that requires a complex cultivation strategy. However, there is a significant overlap between the commercial cultivation of cannabis and the modern cultivation techniques used in the agri-food sector. By using knowledge and technology from the horticulture sector, where quality and cost-efficiency are essential, it is possible to significantly improve the efficiency of cannabis cultivation. The result is improved sustainability and transparency.
It’s no surprise that the cannabis cultivation sector is undergoing something of a rapprochement with tried and tested players in agriculture and horticulture such as Ridder. When it comes to issues like energy-efficient climate control and a completely closed crop environment, Ridder has valuable expertise to offer. Another of our areas of expertise is efficient irrigation systems that save water and provide the crop with a precisely balanced nutrient mixture. Ridder has a proven track record in addressing all of these challenges in existing sectors, such as greenhouse cultivation of vegetables or decorative plants.
The regulated cultivation of cannabis requires innovative growing technology. That way, any investment you make in this young and rapidly growing sector will be future-proof. It is essential to optimize work processes, and at the same time you need to comply with extensive legal and regulatory requirements that ensure crop quality and safeguard the health of end users. Ridder can provide the right integrated solutions that will make your investment in commercial cannabis cultivation and pharmaceutical crops more sustainable and profitable.

As a result of strict legal and regulatory requirements, the responsible use of water is an important factor in cannabis cultivation. Sustainable methods, such as the recirculation of drainage water and precision irrigation technology, facilitate the efficient use of water and fertilizers, and optimize crop yields.
Ridder's labour-saving irrigation and fertigation systems provide your plants with a consistent nutrient blend that can be aligned completely with your chosen cultivation strategy. The use of disinfection systems and water purification minimizes the discharge of residual water and environmentally harmful substances into surface water. It also means clean, safe, high-quality irrigation water, no matter where in the world you are.
High-quality pharmaceutical crops such as cannabis are very demanding when it comes to climate control. It is the climate in your greenhouse that ensures high quality and consistent yields, while also minimizing the risk of pests and diseases.
By using intelligent sensors and adaptive climate computers, cannabis growers can monitor the growth of the medicinal crops in their greenhouse or climate chamber down to the last detail, controlling growing conditions with a high degree of precision. And the optimum climate means maximum crop yields and profitability.
Full control over light levels and energy consumption is a key factor, especially in a day-length-sensitive crop such as cannabis.
Ridder's extensive range of climate-optimization and energy-saving screens will help you cultivate the perfect crop and improve your bottom line by giving you ultimate control over daylight levels and light distribution, temperature and ambient humidity.
Efficient large-scale cannabis cultivation requires a significant investment. Cannabis is a labour-intensive crop that involves a number of different work processes at each stage of the crop’s growth. It is essential to have an overview of all these processes and the work that needs to be done.
Ridder's management and tracking systems enable you to maximize worker productivity, monitor quality, analyse work processes and keep a close eye on all your costs. This leads to improved transparency and responsiveness, in terms of crop development, labour tracking and quality standards. A track-and-trace system is an indispensable tool when it comes to compliance with the strict laws and regulations that apply to professional cannabis cultivation.
When growing cannabis in a greenhouse, it is important to be able to control the climate precisely at all times through the use of ventilation and screening.
Ridder provides a wide range of drive solutions to create the perfect climate for growth. These systems are well-known for the reliability and protection they offer, even during the most extreme conditions.
