Is Adding Fertigation to Your Growing Mix Right for You?
AgTech is revolutionizing the way crops are grown. The ability to control environmental factors and agricultural processes with extreme precision leads to better crop yields, better resource management, lower costs, and improved environmental conditions. One precision technology that has become extremely popular across a wide variety of crop types is fertigation – the synthesis of fertilization and irrigation.
A lack of space to expand crop size has been a limiting factor for growers and farmers for as long as agriculture has existed. Still, thankfully, technology has answered the call for help with an increasingly popular solution – grow up.
Recently, our very own Account Executive Jim Stephens went on-site in the great pacific northwest to visit one of our favorite customers, B Force Farms. Located in Hillsboro, Oregon, it's a small town that grows some big buds. Jim came to town to do a site follow up and ensure that the recently installed Fertigation system was functioning correctly on the B Force cannabis farm, and to make sure owner Kirby Marcellini was satisfied.
Sustainability in farming is about more than saving precious resources like water; it's about creating a growing environment that takes the guesswork out of agriculture. And nothing does that better than proactively monitoring your indoor grow. Monitoring is beneficial for greenhouses because changes in the growing environment can be dealt with before they damage plants. This means that harsh conditions and losses due to problems such as sudden temperature fluctuations are quickly identified, and adjustments can be made to avoid widespread crop losses. Here are the top 3 things you should be monitoring in your greenhouse.
Just a few short years ago, almost no one knew what agtech was. But today, agricultural technology – from vertical farming to data science – is the new hot thing. In 2017 alone, total investment was over $1.5 billion – a new record for the industry, and one that's setting the stage for explosive growth.
