US (CA): Cannabis Horticultural Association updates integrated pest management services

The Cannabis Horticultural Association (CHA) has announced a rollout of their membership's upgraded digital resource center. "The tiered membership offers access to a wider range of horticultural knowledge, expanding on biological controls, integrated pest management, integrated nutrient management and organic methodologies," te team with the company says. 

"The membership database provides an online training tool for home gardeners, farms and consultants to enhance their scientific understanding for cultivating high grade cannabis with organic, biological and ecological methodologies," explained CHA president, Russell Pace. "This interactive membership is built on 'member driven content' which curates new informational pages based on member interests. Member funding goes back into experimental research and content creation. Whether it be expanding tutorials on companion planting, cloning, cover crops or pest control techniques, every member can now take part in driving the growth of this database. A portion of this funding also allows us to increase marketing awareness for these ecological management practices for the cannabis industry.

CHA has also added a new insect identification service to the website. "Many times a grower will not know if the insect they are seeing is a beneficial insect or a pest," explained CHA president, Russell Pace. "This service helps empower cannabis growers to take charge of their own environment, providing a clear path forward for proper management by understanding their local ecology." This ID service offers direct communication with an entomologist to help individuals identify the beneficial insects or pests they may have in their gardens.

Future updates to the membership database will include building out content on agroecology, permaculture, regenerative agriculture and experimental field research, all part of solidifying CHA's position as a leader in cannabis horticulture.
