Greenhouse Efficiency Summit: Plant Health, Crop Diversity, and Energy Optimization Strategies

This in-person event is hosted by the ACT Group


The greenhouse food production industry is swiftly evolving, serving as a cornerstone in supporting the growing global population. With an increasing demand for fresh, locally grown food and the necessity to reduce agriculture's environmental footprint, embracing innovative strategies is essential. By focusing on improving plant health and quality, expanding crop varieties, and optimizing energy usage, growers can advance their operations.

The ACT Group is organizing the British Columbia Grower Summit, a half-day educational event aimed at empowering greenhouse operators to enhance operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Through insightful discussions, real-world case studies, and presentations on cutting-edge research and innovations, attendees will gain valuable insights into key industry topics.

Following the workshops, participants are invited to join the ACT Group for a networking happy hour featuring delicious appetizers and cocktails.
