04 Apr Texas State Technical College-Waco Students To Benefit From The Organic and Cannabis Revolution
The use of synthetic fertilizers and non-organic farming techniques has imposed a huge slash in the natural benefits and wonders of the crops, plants, and herbs. In addition, the advancing technology and the use of genetic engineering and biotechnology have brought a significant improvement in the conventional methods of farming, harvesting, and cultivation.
The use of technology and the innovation in techniques have significantly optimized the magnitude of yield per acre and are efficiently producing multiple batches of crops in a year. However, despite the fact that the agricultural domain is thriving in terms of yield, frequency, and revenues, the quality aspect of the agriculture has incredible declined.
The use of pesticides, germicides and synthetic, chemical-based and non-organic fertilizers have not only altered the genetic makeup of the crops, they are being the prime cause of various forms of cancer and other epidemic diseases. Therefore, this is the need of time for the agricultural sector to revert to the organic methods of farming and create ground breaking strategies to help evolve a ‘green’ world and sustainable biosphere.
“The great green revolution is on the rise, offering a great opportunity to the health and fitness conscious. Millennials to contribute their part in spreading awareness about organic farming and agriculture.” Mr. Steven Rash, North American Cannabis Holdings, Inc.

Significance for Millennials
The soil, climate, and environmental conditions make Texas an ideal region for farming and agriculture. Located in the center of the country, the state has plenty of agricultural lands as well as commercial property that is relatively less expensive as compared to the coastal states with great farming areas. This is the reason why Texas can become a center point of agricultural revolution for the cannabis industry.
The indoor farming units and grow houses can be a lucrative opportunity to the young generation of farmers to incorporate innovative yet sustainable techniques and strategies to revolutionize organic cannabis cultivation and meet the market demand that is likely to undergo an exponential increase, as cannabis gets legalized in more states.
There is a huge scope of Agricultural botany in the cannabis industry since it is a popular discipline in the younger generation. The millennials can consume their knowledge to raise awareness about the medical, recreational, and industrial use of cannabis as well as the benefits of organic farming and agriculture.
