Delphy opens cannabis research centre

Delphy, the Dutch knowledge-sharing organisation and service provider for horticulturalists worldwide, in association with a group of horticultural suppliers, has opened a purpose-built research centre to optimise medical cannabis growing.

The Medical Cannabis Platform for Innovation and Research (MCPIR) focuses on growing medical cannabis, investigating the most optimal cultivation methods for medicinal cannabis and create a blueprint for further professionalising the cultivation process.

The project is unique in that clients can obtain reliable information from a single platform, which was developed in a market-oriented research facility, making it an one-stop shop for licensed producers.

The companies involved in MCPIR offer technical expertise, including cultivation consultancy, ligthing strategies, climate control, fertilisation, substrate, and natural pest and disease control.

The platform offers two levels of participation – Founding Partner or Member – which provides access to facilities, expertise, and promotion. In addition to developing a cultivation blueprint, MCPIR also organises events and training courses to share knowledge with stakeholders and other interested parties and participates in major international exhibitions.

The founding partners of MCPIR include Philips Horticulture LED Solutions by Signify, Koppert B.V., Paradise Seeds, Priva, Mills Nutrients & Substrates, and Delphy B.V.

The participating members are Brightlabs,, Can Filters, and Van Vliet / Newwen.
