It doesn’t matter if the growing medium is soil or soilless (e.g. hydroponics), regular testing is required for maximum productivity. At Dun Rite, our soil testing procedures include but are not limited to:
– pH testing: if the pH is not properly balanced, several important nutrients are made unavailable to the crop and results in poor yields.
– Porosity testing: cannabis requires large amounts of water to thrive but doesn’t do well when the oxygen level in the root zone becomes depleted. This can be carried by too heavy of soil or lack of aeration to the nutrient solution. Without proper porosity/aeration, crops will become stunted, resulting in smaller yields.
