Man­kis Farm reli­es on first-class pro­ject com­pe­tence and ser­vice from SANSOL.
“Man­kis Farm” is one of the pioneers in the pro­duc­tion of CBD can­na­bis. Very ear­ly on, the Swiss com­pa­ny reli­ed on accu­mu­la­ted know-how, inno­va­ti­ve tech­no­lo­gies and, to opti­mi­ze the growth para­me­ters, on a part­ner with many years of expe­ri­ence in pro­fes­sio­nal can­na­bis pro­duc­tion. The clo­se coope­ra­ti­on with SANSOL and the use of the SAN­light inno­va­tions have visi­b­ly bor­ne fruit. In this way, “Man­kis Farm” was able to impro­ve the qua­li­ty of its plants, suc­cess­ful­ly incre­a­se the yield and expand its posi­ti­on as one of the lea­ding CBD indoor farms in the Euro­pean mar­ket. And that with lower ope­ra­ting and pro­duc­tion costs.

Jen­ners­dorf, August 8, 2019 — The Swiss com­pa­ny “Man­kis Farm” has spe­cia­li­zed in the cultivation of high-qua­li­ty flowers for the CBD can­na­bis mar­ket under con­trol­led con­di­ti­ons in clo­sed rooms. “The CBD mar­ket has tur­ned into a high-tech sec­tor in recent years,” says Mana­ging Direc­tor Ben­ja­min Flatz. “If you want to remain com­pe­ti­ti­ve, you have to know all the growth para­me­ters and mas­ter the cor­re­spon­ding tech­no­lo­gi­cal solu­ti­ons.” The pro­fes­sio­nal can­na­bis gar­de­ner is pri­ma­ri­ly con­cer­ned with incre­a­sing a high-qua­li­ty flower mass with incre­a­sed ingre­dients — such as can­na­bi­no­ids and ter­pe­nes — with the most con­stant cultivation area pos­si­ble and redu­cing ope­ra­ting cos­ts. SANSOL’s per­fect pro­ject plan­ning made a signi­fi­cant con­tri­bu­ti­on to achie­ving the­se goals. The Aus­tri­an pro­vi­der of reli­able ligh­t­ing solu­ti­ons for pro­fes­sio­nal hor­ti­cul­tu­re has many years of expe­ri­ence in can­na­bis pro­duc­tion, a com­pre­hen­si­ve under­stan­ding of the can­na­bis mar­ket and the requi­re­ments of gar­de­ners. “The abi­li­ty to imple­ment the­se requi­re­ments across pro­ces­ses and para­me­ters in an eco­no­mi­c­al solu­ti­on made SANSOL the ide­al part­ner for us,” con­firms Ben­ja­min Flatz.

In clo­se coope­ra­ti­on with “Man­kis Farm”, the experts from SANSOL deve­lo­ped a ligh­t­ing solu­ti­on that is opti­mal­ly tailo­red to the needs of the can­na­bis plant, taking into account all growth para­me­ters. With the Q6W deve­lo­ped in the SAN­light labo­ra­to­ry, a light source was instal­led that, with its broad­band spec­trum, mea­sur­a­b­ly incre­a­ses the pho­to­syn­the­sis rate on the one hand and the pro­duc­tion of valu­able can­na­bi­no­ids on the other. This is a spec­trum simi­lar to sunlight

with light com­pon­ents also out­side the PAR ran­ge. A lar­ge-area, even growth result is gua­ran­te­ed by a homo­ge­ne­ous light dis­tri­bu­ti­on and an opti­mal PPFD value. For this pur­po­se, the ligh­t­ing optics were desi­gned accord­in­gly and the arran­ge­ment of the lights abo­ve the cul­ti­va­ted area was appro­pria­te­ly calculated.

With the lively exchan­ge and the strin­gent imple­men­ta­ti­on of the solu­ti­ons, both spe­cia­lists were able to expand their expe­ri­ence. Howe­ver, they have also been able to incre­a­se the qua­li­ty of their products and main­tain and expand their posi­ti­on in exis­ting as well as new can­na­bis mar­kets. And that with a mea­sura­ble incre­a­se in inco­me and fal­ling costs.
