Dr. Brian Corr Columnist, Consultant—Sycamore Hort Consulting

Brian started dragging hoses and hauling plants around in greenhouses in April 1973. Eventually, he determined that since his last name was not the same as the owner, going off to college might be a good career move. He earned three degrees in horticulture, was on the faculty at the University of Tennessee, then moved on to industry. He says his career has been more fun than should be allowed, doing everything from hanging off cliffs in Brazil looking for new plants to technical advising to seed sales to developing new products. For the last several years, among many other things, he has been advising the cannabis industry in license applications, facility design and plant culture.
