There's so much to get into when you start talking about how to improve the methods you use in crop steering commercial cannabis. And we're here for it!
Episode nine AROYA Office Hours saw our experts, Scott Campbell and Seth Baumgartner, go deep into the weeds. Our growing community never ceases to bring the fire questions!
Dive into the full episode and take in some of the highlights below.
It starts with intention.
“It's important to start off with a statement of intent. And this is something that data allows us to do is, as the grower says, ‘this is what I'm trying to accomplish.’ And then using data to determine whether or not he or she is accomplishing that. I think that's the critical thing.” -- Scott Campbell
Your data is so valuable to your overall success.
“And getting [your data] into AROYA or the same place you keep all your other data is crucial because I can definitely say I've got plenty of notebooks out there that have never been entered into a computer. And, well, looking at that, there's some interesting stuff, but man, I don't have time to cross reference piles and notebooks five and ten years ago.” -- Seth Baumgartner
It's important to not lose sight of your roots.
“...At the end of the day, you've got to have that reliable system and even in veg, anytime you're taking away visibility in the root zone and control you're leaving something on the table.” -- Seth Baumgartner
What is lack of control costing you?
“...We realized systems are expensive. Automation is expensive, but really the expensive thing in the long term is lack of uniformity and lack of control.” -- Scott Campbell
Don't forget to trust yourself.
“At the end of the day, don't ever discount your eyes and your judgment. If you've been doing this for a while, when a plant is healthy, vigorous, it's growing. Don't just discount that.” -- Seth Baumgartner
