Production solutions for vertical growing
Vertical grow operations represent the most complex of controlled environments. Popular for urban agriculture, success in a vertical grow requires special attention to lighting and HVAC systems. Additionally, optimized fertility becomes an important part of the IPM strategy to minimize plant stress leading to pest outbreaks. Crop protection is key in this environment. The CEA Team at Griffin offers solutions that make vertical grow operations produce top quality crops and maintain efficiency.
ICM, IPM and BCA plans for crop protection
Best management practices call for an integrated approach to crop management. Whether framed as integrated crop management (ICM) or integrated pest management (IPM), recommendations from GGSPro will address optimizing overall crop health as a strategy to decrease pest pressure from insects, mites and diseases. Additionally, the CEA team brings expertise in biological control agents (BCAs), a key tool for insect and mite management in many CEA crops.
Fertility programs for conventional and organic operations
All growers recognize that crop nutrition has a direct impact on growth and yield. What many growers fail to recognize is that crop nutrition also impacts susceptibility to pests. When recommending a fertility program for your crops, GGSPro will start by understanding both your water quality and the production system planned for the crop. From there, rates and formulations will be recommended to build a strong crop. Our toolbox includes conventional water soluble products, conventional controlled release products, liquid organic products, organic slow release products and supplements. Let us build the perfect fertility program for you.
