Areas of Expertise

  • PROPAGATION

  • CROP PROTECTION

  • WATER TREATMENT

  • FACILITY SANITATION/DISINFECTION

The following timeline is intended for indoor growers.

 

Sanitation

1. WASHING

2. DISINFECTION

  • Use SaniDate® 5.0 on end-walls, sidewalls and floors during production without fear of volatilization. Do not allow contact with plant material
  • Utilize SaniDate 5.0 in production areas once a week or bi-weekly to keep inoculum levels lowered
  • Now fog applicable! For empty greenhouses only

3. FOAMING FOR TOUGH TO CONTROL PATHOGENS

  • An excellent application for hard, porous surfaces.
  • Benefit is contact time – 30-60 minutes ‘hang time’
  • Improved efficacy on porous surfaces

4. LINE CLEANING

After time, irrigation lines can become clogged and or dirty. This could reduce the overall amount of water reaching your plants, along with the quality. Therefore, line cleaning is crucial.

 

Propagation

Step 1: Dunk cuttings into ZeroTol® 2.0 solution prepared at 15 mL/gallon for 45 seconds to disinfect. Allow to air dry. We recommend taking clones on Tuesdays.

Step 2: Drench media with ZeroTol 2.0 at 15 mL/gallon to “clean” the media. Prepare TerraGrow® solution at 3 oz./10 gallons. Check solution pH and buffer as needed. Wait at least 15 minutes then dunk media into TerraGrow solution prior to stick. Add rooting hormone to cuttings and stick.

Step 3: Spray the tops of the blocks and the clones every 3 days with ZeroTol 2.0 at 15 mL/gallon to mitigate algae growth and reduce damping off and foliar pathogen occurrence. Over saturation can cause TerraGrow to become unviable. Do not soak the propagation media. A light misting over the cuttings is ideal.

TerraGrow Vegetative and Flower Application: Apply TerraGrow as a drench once weekly at 0.5 — 1.0 gram per gallon when growing in rockwool or coco-type media. TerraGrow can be drenched along with fertilizers. Mix to use solution within 24 hours. If growing in soil, then drench TerraGrow at 4 to 6 oz./100 gallons every 3 weeks.

WEEKS 3 - 5

  • ZeroTol 2.0 at 37 mL/gallon. Use 2 gallons of solution / 400 sq. ft. Use nonionic wetting agent with ZeroTol 2.0 to help make contact within bud. Spray for contact of entire shoot, and leaves and stems down to media.
  • Follow up ZeroTol 2.0 application with microbial biofungicide foliar spray* at 2 grams per 3 gallons of water / 400 sq. ft. as soon as possible to protect against botrytis. You only need 1 hour after ZeroTol 2.0 spray to apply a microbial biofungicide of your choice*. Spray for contact of entire shoot. Leaves and stems down to media. * Always consult your local area sales rep for proper use rates

WEEKS 6 - 8

ZeroTol 2.0 at 37 mL/gallon. Use 4 gallons of solution / 400 sq. ft. Use non-ionic wetting agent with ZeroTol 2.0 to help make contact within bud. Spray for contact of entire shoot, and leaves and stems down to media. This spray volume is intended to reduce bacterial and fungal contaminants prior to harvest.

NOTE: During weeks 3–8 (or until crop finishes introduce beneficial insects. If relative humidity is low and rooms are warm introduce Californicus, Swirskii and Persimilis. If rooms are cool and relative humidity is 50% to 60% introduce Fallacis, Cucumeris and Persimilis. Andersoni can be introduced in varying relative humidity but should only be released preventatively. For aphid management, release green lacewing and Aphidius colemani. Nematodes will control fungus gnats and thrips in the soil. Water in nematodes monthly.

Crop Protection Notes

  • When treating root aphids and an AzaGuard drench is required: 11.5 mL AzaGuard + 3,774 mL water = 1-gallon finished solution. Drench 1 pint of finished solution for every 1 gallon of media in the pot. Thoroughly wet media with solution to limit runoff or drip.
  • You can continue AzaGuard and BioCeres WP usage in flower weeks 3 through 6, as needed.
  • Always spray BioCeres WP and a microbial biofungicide of your choice* separately from ZeroTol 2.0.
  • Never use a surfactant when tank mixing ZeroTol 2.0 and AzaGuard.
  • Spray crop protection products, if possible, when lights are off.
  • Always follow your state regulations for approved pesticide applications on cannabis.
  • Do not use RO water for foliar sprays.

* Always consult your local area sales rep for proper use rates

Make Applications Easy with Air-Assisted Foamers

The BioFoamer operates on 40 — 70 PSI of compressed air and requires pre-mixed detergent solutions to create thick, long-lasting foam, ideal for use with ZeroTol 2.0, SaniDate 5.0, and OxiDate 2.0. The BioFoamer unit will infuse these formulations into a thick foam, providing a visual cue for coverage and extended contact time.

  • Operate on 40-70 PSI or compressed air
  • Produces up to 20 gallons of foam per minute
