    A Preventative Approach

    There are many methods to anticipate and treat issues early in the garden. One commonly utilized strategy for keeping plants clean of pests is called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM applies a combination of techniques that are environmentally sound and reduce the need for pesticides.

    The common methods for prevention using IPM include:

  • Clones

  • If your cultivation facility gets clones from a nursery, there are certain precautions that must be followed to prevent issues from entering the cannabis grow rooms.

  • Plants

  • Post-Harvest

  • Grow Medium

  • Tools of the Trade

  • Sanitization Practices
