How to Create a Truly Data Driven Grow
Through innovation in data management and communications systems, Braingrid envisions a future focused on data-driven growing for the cannabis industry.
Long gone are the days of growing cannabis with a simple on-off light switch and a manually managed light schedule. Large-scale commercial operations rely on much more than intuition these days; using high-tech mobile apps for remote management and in-depth analysis of historical light information. In fact, growers are now using technology to learn intimate details about the light requirements of specific strains and then making minute adjustments to produce individualized LED light recipes that their forefathers could only dream about.
We had an opportunity to speak with Robert Schneider about Botana's Grow Journal app and its new addition, Bug Tracker, which helps growers monitor and control pest activity.
The environment in a modern cannabis grow facility is dynamic, fortunately there is equipment out there when properly applied that can protect the crops from mold and mildew while maximizing crop yield and the growers return on investment.
Innovations in horticultural lighting technologies have advanced with the continued growth in many plant-based industries, including food consumption and pharmaceuticals. Among the uses of more advanced lighting science is the ability to control the min-maxing of photosynthetic light fixtures, improving yield and growth cycle duration.
