Technology powered by artificial intelligence (AI) has quickly evolved in traditional indoor agricultural production in recent years, as companies use the vast amounts of data produced in their operations to make better production and management decisions.

Now, indoor hemp growers are jumping on the AI bandwagon.

The technology helps companies:

  • Lower costs.
  • Fine-tune irrigation.
  • Manage humidity.
  • Speed inventory management.

Large companies, in particular, have been rapidly putting these systems to work as a secret weapon in the fast-moving, highly competitive market.

But as technology advances and scales – and more providers offer new technology solutions – experts believe there will be more opportunities for smaller operators to access AI-enabled platforms.
