After you’ve got your crop trimmed and bucked, you’re excited to move onto the next phase: drying, curing, or extraction. But before that, you need to determine what you’re going to do with all your excess plant matter - which is where our harvest waste solutions come in!
Many states have legal guidelines for disposing of all this plant waste. Without the right process in place, you’ll end up wasting time and money. Instead, invest in either a liquid compost biodigester or a plant waste shredder to automate the cleanup!
Here at Hydrobuilder, you’ll find that we have both options available at the best prices online - and with the best service in the industry. But which solution is right for you? Let’s take a look at some key differences among these options.
What Is The Difference Between A Liquid Compost Biodigester and A Plant Waste Shredder?
Both of these types of equipment will prove effective at helping you eliminate harvest waste - but the way in which they do this varies.
Plant waste shredders are far more simple, and do exactly what they sound like - shred your plant waste down to a fine powder so you can easily dispose of it. You can put any sort of plant matter in here, which makes them a versatile piece of machinery. Rockwool cubes, failed clones, root balls, stalks, stems, foliage, you name it.
But the issue is that plant waste shredders still produce some form of waste - no matter how fine it may be - that needs to be disposed of. That’s why many growers are flocking towards the Liquid Compost Biodigester.
This more advanced piece of equipment uses microorganisms, enzymes, and more to rapidly degrade any plant matter you place in it. Instead of producing another form of plant waste for you to deal with, the LCD will create a gray water byproduct that you can either flush down the drain or even use to enrich your landscape - as it's totally safe for the environment.
