What makes a Master Grower?
What separates the home/hobbyist from the master grower? I know home/hobbyist growers that I would consider master growers. Some of the most intelligent growers I’ve ever met. But they don’t grow in a facility or an operation.
Clearly, the needs and requirements for growing on scale are vastly different than the needs growing in a 5 x 5 grow tent in the basement.
But there doesn’t seem to be much qualification or guidelines for Master Growing.
I met an investor at CannaGrow last October who was waiting for his shuttle back to the airport. He told me he had just received a 3,000 plant cultivation license (good for him.) His only experience with growing was growing for 9 months (yikes.) He then told me he hired a master grower based on the color of the grower’s skin.
This is your industry.
These are real conversations and real decisions being made.
Can standards be created and enforced?
Can guidelines be made?
How do we prepare the better grower for tomorrow? How do we take Joe-Grower at home and get him ready to take on a facility but have a reputable way to teach that and verify that education?
What do you think, Growers Network?
