Agro Mechanix is one of many professional, state regulated production cultivation facilities supplying the state of Washington with recreational cannabis. Agromechanix has been known to produce high quality, top shelf cannabis, as well as producing concentrates via Slab Mechanix. The main problem with the cannabis industry is that it requires a light fixture that will produce less heat and more effective light, while maintaining or reducing the wattage used. Current market solutions are driven by high pressure sodium (HPS) and metal halide lamps, which have been proven to produce quality cannabis under the right factors.
Agro Mechanix set up a growing room in 4 x 4 plots inside a racking system that allows fixtures to be hung about two feet from the canopy. Currently, 1000W HPS lamps are being used along with entire environmental control using HVAC, CO2 burners and humidity control. The problem with this setup is that it produces a very high amount of heat resulting in unnecessary power loss. By retrofitting with LEDs to produce higher light output, additional yield amounts would increase revenue dramatically.
