From Cultural to Chemical Control: How to Implement an Effective IPM Plan for Cannabis

to

Join InSpire for our next in-depth webinar designed specifically for cannabis cultivators. Previously in this series, we introduced the concept of cultural control and its impact on cannabis plant health and vitality. Now we’ll be examining the balance between creating optimal indoor conditions for plants to thrive, while simultaneously avoiding conditions for pests to thrive. Even a small outbreak can quickly lead to crop loss and destroyed revenue, as all legal markets conduct testing for biological contaminants like yeasts, molds and bacteria as well as residual pesticides. 

A comprehensive Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program and Integrated Microbe Management (IMM) program are critical to success in indoor horticulture, and help to mitigate risk and protect your investment. Cultural control is the foundation of every good IPM/IMM plan, which prioritizes prevention over attempted eradication. 

Industry experts Robbie Batts and Jesse Porter will bring their decades of experience in cultivation science and technology to guide the conversation and answer your questions. 

- Review the concept of pest management and understand the “disease triangle,” which encompasses the host, the pathogen and the environment

- Discover the factors of a comprehensive IPM/IMM plan and learn how to create and implement an effective strategy

- Explore the role of environmental control in IPM/IMM and the related impact on plant health and vitality

- Discuss legal guidelines and regulations in regards to pest management 

- Explain methods of analysis to determine if your IPM/IMM plan is successful

Drying and Curing Cannabis To Preserve Terpenes and Other Secondary Metabolites

to

A consistent cultural control and environmental control strategy can help you maximize plant genetics, optimize product quality and yield, and influence overall plant health and vitality. However, all of your cultivation expertise is for naught without the ability to properly dry and cure your product. The curing process is both an art and a science, finding a careful balance between consistent moisture removal and terpene and secondary metabolite preservation while mitigating risk of pathogen infection and product loss.

Industry experts Jesse Porter and Robbie Batts will bring their decades of experience in cultivation science and technology to guide the conversation and answer your questions. Leave with the tools and knowledge you need to produce your best product.

- Discuss the science of what happens after harvest and the importance of the curing process; we have seen more money left on the table in the curing stage than any other stage of cultivation

- Learn how temperature, humidity, light and other environmental factors influence the curing process and secondary metabolite preservation

- Explore the parameters that assist in preserving secondary metabolites, eliminating chlorophyll, sugars, and lipids and reducing pathogen infection.

- Gain insight into popular curing timelines and environmental setpoints

Webinar: The 10 Cardinal Parameters of Plant Health and Vitality

to

Successful cannabis cultivation depends on many variables, including an intimate understanding of your plants. This goes beyond a plant’s basic needs for growth, and encompasses its culture: all of the bacteria, spores, fungus and other microorganisms living on and inside the plant. A consistent cultural control and environmental control strategy can help you maximize plant genetics, optimize product quality and yield, and influence overall plant health and vitality.

Industry experts Jesse Porter and Robbie Batts will bring their decades of experience in cultivation science and technology to guide the conversation and answer your questions.

- Define the cardinal parameters of plant health and vitality and the four pillars of environmental control

- Explore the impact these parameters have on plant transpiration and vapor pressure deficit (VPD)

- Discuss the process of maximizing transpiration and VPD to optimize plant genetics, phenotype expression, biomass and other factors of product quality

Indoor Agriculture Energy Solutions conference (IAES conference)

to

The IAES Conference is a key touchstone in shaping the future of energy policies and utility programs for controlled environment agriculture, drawing from the lessons of early models emerging in cannabis cultivation and extending to the rapidly scaling greenhouse and vertical farming sectors cropping up in rural, suburban and urban regions.

 

IAES will provide high-value knowledge transfer to get you immediately up the learning curve by connecting in one place at a critical moment in time with the experts and pioneers throughout North America. This is the place to be involved in the discussion on how to address the energy and carbon implications of our agriculture future.
