AROYA Office Hours Episode Forty-Eight: How AROYA Improves Quality, Maximizing Terpenes, and Chats About Curing!

Amazing things happen when there's this much crop steering experience in one place. Watch and learn from episode 48!

If you came for the crop steering education, you got it last week on AROYA Office Hours! We're loving all of the questions our virtual audience submitted to Seth and Jason this time, and we learned a lot! Like how to use tools in the garden to increase quality (and boost terpenes), our advice for things like curing and (god forbid) root aphids. And we drilled down into the power of data and how you can use it to steer your plants even more than you can with gut instinct.

Y'all have really been showing us the love on the show lately, too, and we really appreciate that. From everyone on the team, thanks for watching and making it a great year for growing. But we're not done yet (in fact, we have one more show before we close out the year). 

Join us this week and check out the key takeaways from our last sesh. We've got the highlights, hot and ready for ya!

Be proactive, not reactive.

“Lack of consistency run to run is one of the biggest things that contributes to loss and quality. Just not having all your bases covered and working reactively all the time, rather than proactively.” – Seth Baumgartner

Is it really "fine-tuning" though?

“And this is really important: the fact that if we don't have a full picture or you don't have a full picture because of the lack of data, a lot of times your ‘fine tuning’ actually isn't going to be fine tuning, and you're gonna over tune things. And we're gonna go from one, maybe slightly successful technique and maybe we'll be thinking we're fine tuning it, but we don't have the data to support how the plant response actually was.” – Jason Van Leuven

Data can help you stay ahead of the competition.

“The most profitable business is one that isn't over-full on employees and isn't underemployed; it's got that nice balance. Well, sometimes that doesn't leave quite as much time for cultivators to sit down and analyze whole runs or historical data, so utilizing software to make that process dynamic and easy is really important to stand competitive in today's market.” – Seth 

Use the right tools to help you make the right calls.

“It's important to look back at that holistic run and use all the tools you have available. Don't jump to something more complicated just because you feel like it's gonna be a lot better; start with the foundations and collect as much data as possible before, then you can really capture everything going on in a facility or growing environment.” – Seth 

Learn. Grow better. Repeat.

We can use quick references rather than poring over spreadsheets or looking at graphs with a lot of values on them and no easy way to sort it.” – Seth 

Enough said.

“More nodes. More generative.” – Jason
