As quoted in the press release:
Initial yields support the Company’s predictions that changes in process efficiencies will result in annual yields higher than initially estimated when Phase 2 was designed. At present, the Company reaffirms its target production capacity from Phases 1 and 2 of approximately 22,000 kg/year (up from initial estimations of 16,000 kg/year). Facility enhancements include a fully-automated irrigation system, automated potting, a fully automated waste destruction system and automated packaging lines, adding to a data-based production approach which ensures growing optimization for every room.
“The first harvest out of these new rooms is proof that we’ve come to know our plant strains and our tools to the point where we understand how to create the optimal environments they need in order to thrive,” says Organigram CEO Greg Engel, adding Organigram targets yields of approximately 400 grams per square foot of canopy space.
