Growing cannabis today in a productive, fruitful manner requires a wide variety of essential elements. While the theories behind cultivating a thriving crop of cannabis vary, recent scientific research indicates that organic fertilizers play an instrumental role in supplying the nourishment and nutrition necessary to encourage healthy growth while fighting off harmful elements that prevent a prosperous harvest. Organic farming is no new concept; however, marijuana growers across the world have expressed skepticism regarding organic fertilizers in their growing habits. However, as time goes on more research becomes readily available which proves how important and effective organic farming is for marijuana crops.
The promotion of cycling of resources paired with biodiversity preservation and ecological harmony lays the foundation for organic growing in marijuana plants. In fact, new research supports the fact that marijuana plants fertilized with USDA approved organic fertilizers maintained over 60 percent more important nourishment and nutrition than those that did not use organic product. The standard method of cultivating marijuana has become antiquated and as more growers begin to realize the power of organic fertilizers, these methods will soon become obsolete.
Organic methods, in contrast to many hydroponic and chemical methods, allows for productive, high quality yields of marijuana crop. Many growers speak to the variety of challenges that they face while attempting to grow organically in their indoor environment. In order to battle the many different types of fungus, bacteria, algae, mold, and airborne, water-born, and soil born pests, organic pesticides and fertilizers must be used. Attempting to battle these pests without using fertilizers and pesticides will result in reduced yields and eventually killed harvests.
When looking to purchase organic pesticides and fertilizers for your cannabis crops, be sure to read the label. Far too many growers find themselves thinking that a product is organic when they neglect to read the fine print. In reality, if the label does not say things such as “non-toxic”, “safe for the environment”, “made from all natural plant extracts” or “100% organic” there is a strong likelihood that many elements within the product are not in fact organic. Growing organically is critical to crop yields and overall health of your cannabis harvests.
