Ag-tech tools deliver solutions for farmers to some of the most common, persistent growing issues. Smart sensors, monitors, and automated tools work together to optimize greenhouse or indoor farming environments while minimizing the time and effort spent managing these growing variables.
Technology offers a range of opportunities for the commercial grower to make effective use of the greenhouse environment. The latest tools enable the grower to exert a high degree of control without having to be constantly on-site. They make the growing process more efficient and can drive higher yields as well.
“While heat is a necessary component of healthy cannabis plant growth, overheating can cause adverse reactions that will detract from proper development and ultimately, the quality of your yield,” experts note.
Let’s take a look at the causes and symptoms of heat stress and then consider some possible remedies.
When people talk about agriculture, sunshine and rain seem like basic ingredients. That’s typically true—but only up to a point. Increasing numbers of growers are finding indoor farming to be a powerful and profitable alternative to tilling the soil outdoors.
For many startup cannabis growers, a grow tent offers an agile and economical way to get a crop under cultivation quickly and easily. To make the most of a grow tent, though, it makes sense to adopt the latest technologies.
In order to understand just how sensors and automation can leverage a grow tent’s inherent advantages, it is important to start with the basics. Let’s take a look at what a grow tent is and why you might want to use one. Then we can dig into the how and why of monitoring technologies and agro-management tools.
