Trym Unveils Touchless Harvesting

A California cannabis cultivation software company has launched a new technology designed to make cannabis harvests more efficient.

Novato-based Trym today announced the release of “Touchless Harvesting,” a patent-pending technology that enables cultivators to use a mobile device to quickly scan, weigh, and record plant tags while harvesting cannabis plants.

According to Trym, Touchless Harvesting saves harvesting time, is CDFA compliant, completes harvests without logging into METRC, automates weight recording through Bluetooth scale integration, and keeps sticky, trichome-covered fingers off of mobile devices.

Touchless Harvesting allows cultivators to scan plant tags via phone or tablet without having to touch the device.

“At Trym, we’re all about helping cultivators save time and streamline their operations,” says Trym CEO Matt Mayberry. “That’s why we created Touchless Harvesting. It’s a burden to harvest cannabis plants in California due to regulations that require tediously weighing each plant and reporting the weights to the state via METRC.”

Trym launched Touchless Harvesting with longtime partner and customer FloraCal Farms.

The software enabled FloraCal to harvest, weigh, and report 680 plants before lunchtime.

FloraCal Farms harvests cannabis plants weekly at its 20,000-square-foot facility in Santa Rosa.

Mayberry says that the feedback on Touchless Harvesting has been fantastic, and the company is looking forward to expanding its reach in 2021.

FloraCal Farms Director of Compliance Andrew Rayl says that Touchless Harvesting is a great convergence of efficiency and compliance.

“It allows us to remain in full compliance,” says Rayl. “With even the most conservative interpretations of harvest regulatory requirements without sacrificing any time.”
