  • Vertical Growing: The Future Of Gardening & Farming

    Vertical growing is the way of the future - at least some people think so. Others have no idea what it even is.

    When you think about agriculture, what comes to mind? For most people, it’s growing crops in horizontal lines on the ground. 

    While this traditional system of agriculture has worked well for many years (centuries, even!) there’s a new method of growing food that’s taking the world by storm - vertical agriculture.

    Vertical agriculture, or vertical growing, is the practice of growing plants by stacking or layering them, growing them vertically rather than horizontally. 

    Not only does it use less space, but vertical farming also can be done in a hydroponic setup.  There are several methods, including indoor vertical farming. 

    But whatever the case may be, it’s a smart way to extend a growing season, extend a growing space, and extend your garden’s productivity. Here’s everything you need to know.

  • Harvest Automation: Increase Efficiency With Trimmers, Buckers, and Conveyors

    Harvest automation is something every commercial grower should be striving towards because it means higher profits, better flower, and a more discreet operation with fewer workers.

    These days, even small-scale operations can increase the productivity of their harvest, by switching from hand trimming to machine trimming.

    Previously, only the largest grows could afford to invest in a trimming machine, but as technology advances, this is no longer the case.

    We have the products to help you automate every aspect of your harvest, but we want to first talk about what we mean when discussing automation.

  • Garden Soil and Nutrient Solution Testing - pH, TDS, and More!

    Garden soil and nutrient testing will be your biggest responsibility on a day-to-day basis while growing. Plants are generally pretty resilient, but they can develop some pretty nasty issues if certain aspects of their nutrition are out of whack. 

    Some of the most common things you’ll need to test include pH, PPM, TDS, EC, Temperature, and moisture. You won’t need to test all of these, but there are a few that are definitely important to measure regularly.

    We’ll break this post into two sections - testing your garden soil and testing your nutrient solution. If you’re growing hydroponically, you’ll just need to worry about testing your hydroponic reservoir.

    But if you grow in soil, you may need to test not just your nutrients, but your soil, and sometimes even your runoff.

    In this post, we are going to teach you everything you need to know about soil and nutrient testing!
