MJBiz - August 2023 - 24

On the surface, harvesting an indoor cannabis crop is a
seemingly simple act that boils down to clipping flower and
sending it to the drying room. Indoor harvesting is complex and
critical to a successful final product, however, and it demands
both scientific expertise and craft. Expert cannabis cultivators
say that:
* Preparing your crop for harvest starts with a written plan
developed before the seeds or clones are planted.
* Several days before harvest, cultivation staff begin trimming
fan leaves, making HVAC adjustments, flushing nutrients and
preparing the plants in other ways.
* Analyzing trichomes and using scientific instruments to
measure plant-moisture levels and other readings can help
pinpoint the right time to harvest.
* Some growers wait until the day of harvest to determine
which plants will be used for extraction and which will be
trimmed, packaged and sold as flower; other cultivators make
the determination well in advance.
* " Fresh freezing " cannabis immediately after harvest is
increasingly common, as it provides businesses with an
expanded stable of products to offer customers.
