Thanks to your very insightful questions, we got deep into the weeds on this week’s session of Office Hours! Among many things Seth covered the ins and outs of analyzing EC levels, why regularly maintaining and cleaning irrigation systems must always be a priority, and the roles research and experimentation play in agriculture.

Eyes on the prize.
“Ideally we want to have [plants] coming out of veg rocking.” - Seth
