" That material is sitting directly on the bedded rows, it's being exposed to ultraviolet light and
moisture, and it's degrading just from natural oxidation, " says Brandon Rivers, founder and
president of California-based SLO Hemp Co.
Rivers says more growers are embracing the use of hay, straw or even plant-based biodegradable
mulch film as an alternative to plastic covers.
Cultivation experts also suggest growing cannabis in beds rather than plastic pots, which must be
eventually replaced.
" You get more out of the actual chemical compounds with the complexity of the plant, " Julia
Jacobson, CEO of California-based Aster Farms, tells MJBizDaily. " Switching from growing in pots
to growing in beds is a clear-cut solution to reducing the number of pots that we're using in the
cannabis industry. "
Jacobson adds that trellis netting used for spacing plants is rarely used more than once.
" It's not just a harmful plastic ... it's also shaped in a particular way that can be extremely harmful
for ending up in the oceans, " she adds.
Fortunately, this netting can be replaced with a compostable alternative, which is what Jacobson
and her team have embraced at Aster Farms.
The plastic used in irrigation system piping also poses an ecological threat. Outdoor growers can
eliminate plastic from the irrigation system by embracing center-pivot, ditch or floor irrigation
techniques.
