To maximize their growing area, Fog City Farms purchased the mobile racking system by Pipp Horticulture. In a series of videos they discuss several topics, like environmental conditions, the presence of air flow and vertical air.
No clip-on fans or inline fans at Fog City farms. “Transpiration and production is a huge deal as in pushing the value of this crop, so if you are just putting fans every four feet throughout the space you are really just moving around the microclimate. Using our system you are strategically delivering more dehumidified and conditioned air to the space while you are destratifying the microfiber.”
Strategic supply of more dehumidified air
To make the environmental conditions consistent all throughout the space was a challenge. “All our environmental supply was couched perfectly for the amount of lights and the amount of plants that we had in this space. But we had consistently five to eight percent higher relative humidity on the lower tier than we were on the top. I couldn’t figure it out. How is this not consistent top to bottom?” Supplying in different elevations, a strategic supply of more dehumidified air, was the solution. “That is cannabis in a nutshell. We are absolute practitioners. We learned from making all the mistakes in the book.” he says. Most of those mistakes comes from the environment. “You can put the best genetics in an unsuitable environment and it is not going to do anything for you. And you could put a subpar genetic in a very nice environment and you are still going to make something out of that.”
