GETTING STARTED WITH REUSABLE GROW MEDIA AND NO-TILL FARMING
The type of media used to grow plants-in addition to how ground soil is treated between
harvests-can also significantly impact the sustainability of n grow operation.
" The single-use media systems are by far the main culprits of environmental unsustainability, " says
Av Singh.
" Obviously, sun-grown, regenerative, organic cultivation makes the most sense environmentally-
and, arguably, medically, " Singh adds. " Several cannabis operators have shown that they have used
the same soil for over five years (30 harvests) with minor amendments after each grow. "
According to Singh, LSO beds, aeroponics (plants grown without soil or a similar medium) and deepwater
culture can be the most sustainable options in locations where regenerative, organic outdoor
growing isn't a viable option.
" A huge advantage of a living-soil raised bed is we add the soil and mix the nutrients the first year,
and it goes in those raised beds and should be good for years to come, " Tom Moylan, director of
cultivation at Maryland-based Culta, tells MJBizDaily.
Using living soil can also reduce the money spent on water and supplemental nutrients, allowing
cultivators to save big on their monthly overhead costs and beyond.
The use of synthetic media for a single grow cycle can result in significantly more waste going to
landfills. Synthetic nutrients also are often disposed of after a single harvest.
" To me, stone wool should be banned from horticulture/agriculture until there are systems to
recycle and repurpose the spent material, " Singh notes. " There is a product in Canada, similar to
biochar (it's called Pure Carbon) that is doing just that. "
Growers who use living soil can save money on supplemental nutrients.
