AROYA Office Hours Episode Thirty-One: Inputs vs Outputs, Task Management, Tissue Analysis , DLII, and PPFD
Coming in hot with another episode of AROYA Office Hours, we got back to crop steering basics with Seth and Jason this week and talked about tissue analysis, lighting, and even touched a bit on our favorite substrates.
The guys also got into what some may consider a "dirty" word in cultivation: labor. Then our discussion turned to some of the ways that AROYA can help teams with task management, allowing cannabis cultivators to free up bandwidth and boost efficiency within their operations.
Keep reading for the highlights from episode thirty-one and catch up with the full video podcast down below.
Waste not, work not.
“Through the course of human civilization we're always attempting to get more outputs with less inputs. And traditionally, one of the most expensive and most difficult to obtain inputs is labor. So, if you're not organized, you're going to be very wasteful.” -- Seth Baumgartner
Start with a clear picture.
“There's a lot of things you can look at and try to find places that you can reduce labor costs. And you know, that only comes around when you've got good organization and a good way to quantify and monitor how much work is getting done per unit of labor input.” -- Seth
Dial it in (but remember that genetics play a part).
“Always do keep in mind—making sure your environment is dialed before you do that crop steering. And also keep in mind that genetic variance or preference. So, its genetics can vary quite a bit, as well.” -- Jason Van Leuven
Document, learn, repeat success.
“Just good documentation on what you're doing in the different variables as far as going into good density and ripeness. And then dial it in there for each strain.” -- Jason
We're here to help cannabis cultivators consolidate it all.
“You've really just got to watch your plants, read them and you know, we keep hammering on, ‘I should have pictures, notes, registration, get it in one spot.’ So you can actually use that data. I know there's thousands and thousands of growers out there like me who have binders and notebooks that are never going to get entered into the computer, just sitting around...” -- Seth
