Roots’ RZTO cooling technology increases cannabis yield in high-tech greenhouse by up to 118%.

Roots Sustainable Agricultural Technologies Limited (ASX: ROO) has increased the yield of dry cannabis flowers by up to 118 per cent compared to uncooled crops from various strains within a climate-controlled greenhouse at Canndescent’s facilities in Southern Californi

Roots’ upgraded Root Zone Temperature Optimization (RZTO) cooling system was used to stabilize the roots of cannabis plants at an optimal temperature of 21 degrees Celsius (70F), despite ambient air temperatures within the greenhouse reaching 30°C (85F) and outside temperatures topping 43°C (120F).

Increases of 30 and 118 per cent were achieved during the US summer on two cannabis strains of 400 and 200 cooled plants respectively within a climate-controlled greenhouse utilizing wet mattresses and fans.
