Here’s a Sneak Peek at What You’ll Discover At CannMed’s Cultivation Workshop

Exciting News — Advanced Nutrients’ founder and CEO, BigMike Straumietis, will be leading CannMed’s Cultivation Workshop on Monday, May 15.

This year, he’ll be addressing one of the biggest hidden threats to commercial cannabis profits — pests and diseases.

Along with a panel of leading industry experts, BigMike will discuss the science behind these pathogens, the process by which they infiltrate cannabis operations, and most importantly, how growers can effectively manage pests and diseases to maintain their profits.

And this expert panel won’t just be looking at the pathogens that cannabis growers have grown accustomed to seeing in their crops..

Because now, with widespread cultivation, traditional agricultural pathogens are finding their way into commercial cannabis facilities — and crippling yields before growers catch on to the culprit.

But You Don’t Have to Wait Until CannMed to Preview What’s In Store at the Cultivation Workshop…

In the recent CannMed Coffee Talk podcast, BigMike discusses the most common pests and diseases causing yields, crop quality and bottom lines to suffer, including hop latent viroid disease (HLVd), fusarium, and pythium, just to name a few.

And for the first time ever, he introduces the latest Advanced Nutrients products designed to help growers combat the effects of these devastating pathogens.

Listen to the podcast here.

The reality is, out of the 13.2 billion dollars of cannabis grown, 3.9 billion was lost to pathogens — amounting to a 30% profit loss across the industry. These sweeping metrics make it clear just how big of a crisis these pests and diseases are for cultivators — and how crucial it is to put processes in place to deal with them.

And one of the most dangerous pathogens is HLVd, a viroid that slowly sucks the life out of the plant. To make matters worse, because many plants infected with HLVd will be asymptomatic at first, most growers recognize the issue after it’s too late to fix it.

In fact, many growers mistake the signs and symptoms of an HLVd infiltration for common nutrient deficiencies. This results in weak, puny, low-quality yields and facilities that actively lose money on crops that can’t turn a profit.

The bottom line…

As the distribution of cannabis goes global, crop crossover is becoming more frequent.

And the only way to stay on top of it is to create stringent SOPs and religiously follow those protocols. Otherwise, facilities WILL lose money.

Listen to the podcast here.

And make sure to attend CannMed’s Cultivation Workshop for key insights on pest and disease management from BigMike and a panel of cannabis experts.

You’ll walk away with actionable steps that you can implement right away in your facility to safeguard your profits from the harmful effects of pathogens.

Over time, components within the nutrients settle on the bottom of the bottle. When you pour a bottle without shaking it, you can potentially be pouring out an unbalanced solution. Shaking up the nutrient bottle ensures you are pouring the right blend into your reservoir, giving your crops the nutrition they need.

Usually, it’s not a problem. But some products are incompatible with each other and can damage your plants when they’re used together. For example, bloom boosters with high PK numbers or low-grade silica products can destabilize your nutrient mix and cause nutrient lockout.

Nutrient manufacturers design their products to be used with each other. In doing so, they include specific portions of each nutrient in each product, so crops receive the right nutrition through each stage of the grow cycle. When you stick with one manufacturer, you don’t have to worry about inadvertently destabilizing your nutrient mixture. One example of why you need to stick with only one manufacturer’s products is Advanced Nutrients’ pH Perfect line. These products are designed to keep your crops’ root zone within a specific pH range. When you use them alongside products from another manufacturer, we can’t guarantee your root zone will maintain its optimal pH level.
