SpeakEasy Announces Update On 2021 Harvest
Rock Creek, B.C. – SpeakEasy Cannabis Club Ltd. (CSE: EASY) (Frankfurt: 39H) (the “Company” or “SpeakEasy”) a holder of a federal licence to cultivate, process and sell cannabis under the Cannabis Act is excited to announce the completion of its 2021 planting season of approximately 70,000 plants. The Company’s goal is to achieve a 100% increase in yield from last year’s historical 72,000KG harvest to a total of 144,000KG.
SpeakEasy’s dedicated team has been working hard to get the 2021 outdoor season underway is excited to reap the rewards of its efforts in the months to come.
Preparations for the 2021 outdoor grow season officially commenced on June 7th, 2021 and planting was finalized on July 23rd. Approximately 70,000 plants have been planted for our outdoor facility. Of the 70,000 clones planted, SpeakEasy has selected two strains due to their unique characteristics that have been genetically modified to thrive in its unique environment in Rock Creek. An additional 20 strains have been deployed for testing as SpeakEasy continues to establish a database to further develop the
Company’s growing optimization techniques for the years to come.
Founder Marc Geen, states, “Our second year of planting is completed and looking fantastic. With more space to create clones and prepare indoor this year, we were able to create larger and healthier plants that were ready to be planted outdoors. Taking things we learned from last year and putting them into practice this year, has given us a great start and as a result we are way ahead of where we were last year, we are looking forward to another record setting harvest this fall. As always, our amazing staff came together and pulled off what sometimes seems like an impossible task, thank you all.”
Environment Conditions to Date
Since planting began in June, the plants at the SpeakEasy outdoor facility have experienced a significant amount of sunshine, high temperatures, moderate humidity and very low precipitation.
The averages have been calculated over the last 67 days:
• Day of sunshine: 67
• Total Temperature: 21.7°
• High Temperature: 33.6°
• Humidity: 57%
• Precipitation: 15.06 mm
Founder Marc Geen further states, “We have received many emails expressing concern over the unusual and extreme weather and fire conditions in our area this year. I would like to thank everyone for their well wishes. The month of June saw unprecedented hot and dry weather that has lead to drought and fires throughout the province. We are not in any immediate danger and other than some smoke in the air, we have all faired well here.
The plants have thrived through the hot sunny days and we have plenty of water to keep them healthy and growing. We have prepared a fire response with trained personnel and equipment to act on fires. We have back up generators, pumps, heavy equipment and personal fire-fighting gear at the ready. Unfortunately, we live in times where wild fires need to be considered in building construction, to that end our buildings are all steel construction and brush has been cut back to create a fire block. We hope for the best but plan for the worst and I believe we are prepared and ready for any outcome”
Optimizing the 2020 Harvest to Increase Yield in 2021
Using the data collected from last year, SpeakEasy aims to optimize its different growing styles to achieve maximum efficiency and yield. SpeakEasy’s vegging facility has increased significantly by 1,128% (3,500 sq ft to 43,000 sq ft) due to the completion of our indoor vegging facility in the spring. The increase in space allowed for more offspring’s to be created in a shorter amount of time, permitting a larger number of plants to be planted compared to last year. Additionally, the added space allowed for larger and healthier plants to be planted. The combination of SpeakEasy’s site selection, the favourable climate in Rock Creek, the genetics crafted for the region, and a dedicated farming work ethic allows the Company to achieve yet another historical yield.
The SpeakEasy team continues to work tirelessly for both the preparation for the 2021 harvest and processing of the 2020 – 72,000 KG yield.
