Why should you be crop steering?

Crop steering utilizes vegetative and generative cues through three main pillars: Light, Climate and Irrigation.


Crop Steering: Light

Crop steering is all about understanding light. If you have more light, then your plants will grow faster and have more flowers. This means that when it comes time to harvest them, you'll get better quality flowers than if you don't use crop steering techniques.

Crop steering also helps with the size of your flower heads because it allows them to grow bigger without getting too crowded together or having too many petals on each one—and that's important for making sure everything looks nice and even throughout the entire

bouquet!


Climate

Climate is a big part of crop steering, but you may not know that it can be changed. Climate can be controlled and improved by humans. In fact, climate change is already happening right now!


Irrigation

The most obvious benefit of irrigation is that it keeps your plants healthy and happy. If you're not watering your cannabis plants, they'll likely suffer from a lack of nutrients and may even die.

The second major benefit of irrigation is that it reduces the risk of disease and pests--particularly fungal diseases like powdery mildew or root rot--by keeping the plant's leaves dry enough for air circulation to occur in between them. This helps prevent these pathogens from spreading rapidly through the canopy, which would otherwise make treatment very difficult if not impossible.

Finally, proper irrigation will help increase yield by giving more time between cycles with which to grow more flowers before harvest time comes around again!


Higher quality and yield!

The benefits of crop steering are many. You will see higher yields and quality, healthier plants, better taste and more sustainability.

  • Higher Yields - Crop steering maximizes light exposure on your plants which in turn increases their photosynthesis rate by up to 30%. This means that you will get bigger and better buds!

  • Better Quality Buds - The increased photosynthesis also affects the terpene content in your buds which makes them smell better (and taste better too!)
