NCIA Recognizes Cultivation Technologies Leader urban-gro with its Excellence in Technology Award for 2nd Year in a Row

DENVER, Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- urban-gro, a leading Cannabis cultivation technologies company delivering best-in-class systems, solutions, and technologies for large-scale commercial cultivators across North America, today announced the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) has, for the second year in a row, recognized urban-gro with its Excellence in Technology award in the category of Cultivation. The 2018 awards, which were voted on by NCIA members, were presented at this year’s Seed To Sale Show, the nation’s only business-to-business conference focused solely on innovative best practices, science, and cutting-edge technology in Cannabis cultivation, processing, and sales strategies.

“It’s the innovations and technologies provided by these award-winning companies that allow business owners to operate more intelligently, efficiently, and responsibly,” said NCIA executive director Aaron Smith. “These innovations and technologies also help to produce a more sophisticated and advanced industry, which allows us to continue to push Cannabis policy reform forward.”

urban-gro was highlighted for its Soleil® Technologies platform, the industry’s first line of solutions leveraging the Internet-of-Things (IoT). Consisting of an integrated portfolio of hardware, software, and services, Soleil solutions span the entire cultivation lifecycle and logistics ecosystem to match the growing demand for precision agriculture and modern ag-tech. The solution suite includes per-plant sensing, environmental monitoring, machine diagnostics, fertigation management, lighting controls, inventory management, and seed-to-sale tracking. Together, Soleil solutions represent an unprecedented end-to-end platform for connected agriculture capable of generating new levels of productivity, compliance, and Return-On-Investment (ROI) for large-scale precision horticulture.

“It is an honor to have been selected for this award for the second year in row,” said Brad Nattrass, CEO of urban-gro. “With this technology, it’s not about waiting for a yield report to determine what went right or wrong—it’s looking at data and making decisions in real time, demonstrating progress toward a future with programmed machine learning,” he remarked.

urban-gro will be exhibiting its cultivation technologies at conferences and trade shows throughout the country in 2018. For a full schedule of upcoming events, visit our events page.
