Medcana Launches Test Greenhouses For Microclimates And Genetics With Colombia Partner Firms

Software Effective Solutions Corporation SFWJ subsidiary Medcana successfully launched a test greenhouses for microclimates and genetics with five partner firms in Colombia, South America. According to Arcview Market Research, the cost to cultivate cannabis in Colombia is 60X less expensive than in Canada and 30X less than in the U.S.

José Gabriel Diaz, The company’s CEO, stated, “We have begun simultaneous testing in all five partner companies. The goal is to test microclimate, genetics, local pests, and any other factors that may affect the final design and selection of genetics. The plan is to have our partners run tests with desired strands and analyze initial results.”

“As well, the greenhouses are a very small fraction of the planned builds but allow us to test conditions and begin micro-testing genetics. The plan is to run one 90-day cycle and make sure the test parameters yield the expected results.”

Medcana partners will also be running tests in native soil for near-term open-air cultivation possibilities for the company. For now, the greenhouses give Medcana and partners a controlled environment to ensure native soil results are accurate.

Software Effective Solutions/MedCana is a global infrastructure and holding company in the cannabis industry. The recent acquisition of a software company expanded the offering to provide traceability from plant to product.

“In order to build something right and well, we must go slow, analyze, and test all variables. We have done a phenomenal job with the initial analysis for infrastructure, with geological, hydrological, and environmental factors. Now we want to test further. All things matter, wind currents, small changes in humidity, soil, pests, we want to make sure all is analyzed and tested,” continued Diaz.
