Nick Earls – Cannabis Specialist, Wadsworth Control Systems
Jacob Policzer- President, The Cannabis Convervancy
Nick Earls is the cannabis specialist for Wadsworth Control Systems, Inc. His role includes product design, technical customer support and sales. His comprehensive understanding of meeting crop requirements in a controlled environment began with his studies under Dr. Gene Giacomelli at the University of Arizona. While completing a bachelor’s degree in Controlled Environment Agriculture at the university, Nick managed the hydroponic vegetable production greenhouse. After graduating, he moved to Colorado to gain experience in the cannabis industry, and, in 2013, he joined Denver Relief, where he worked alongside Nick Hice. While there, he managed the indoor cultivation facility and worked with the consulting department, establishing standard operating procedures for grows. He implemented the SOPs by visiting new grows and reviewing the facility flow and cultivation design prior to crop placement. After several years with Denver Relief, an opportunity to serve as head grower for a cannabis greenhouse in Pueblo, Colorado, presented an avenue for more autonomy and a venue to use the skills and knowledge from his cultivation design and indoor grow experience in a greenhouse application. This time as a commercial grower combined with his academic background made Nick’s knowledge and experience a great fit for supporting growers in the cannabis industry and developing features in the new Seed® climate control at Wadsworth Control Systems.
