Case study:
Fusion Farms

Fusion Farms (FF) is a licensed cannabis cultivator and manufacturer based in Adelanto California.

Problem statement

FF had a third party grower who was not producing the expected results from cultivation, who ultimately became disgruntled and damaged all plants before leaving. This challenging situation called for a new approach.

Proposed Solution & Architecture

Whole Grow proposed and implemented a new in-house cultivation program based on the living-soil natural method. For that we needed to retrofit the design of the facility quickly with new systems and equipment, bring new genetics, assemble a new team of growers, put SOPs in place and ensure that the team on site would follow them to produce the necessary results.

What services were used as part of the solution?

  • Financial Proformas

  • Operations Plan

  • Product Development

Results from the solution

The facility was successfully retrofitted on time and on budget, that led to a garden full of healthy plants. FF buyers were excited about the strains and welcomed the quality of the organic cultivation methods.

Metrics for success

  • Time and cost of implementation of retrofitting the facility
  • New knowledgeable team in place and performing tasks per the SOPs, and healthy plants

Lessons learned / outcomes

Bringing the cultivation team in-house was critical to the clients ability to control production costs and yield projections. FF gained invaluable cultivation knowledge and acquired a loyal team to grow into their expansion plans.

Rudy was the only consultant that we met over the course of a year of searching that had not only built his own cannabis business from the ground up, but a wildly successful one at that! Rudy developed and scaled exactly what we were looking for – an indoor organic living soil cultivation program that produced award-winning cannabis. And, he created a corporate culture and working environment that earned his company several "best place to work".
