light-deprivation system can be as good
if not better than indoor-grown marijuana,
as the plants receive extra UV rays
from the sun, which helps them develop
terpenes and cannabinoids.
SET SCHEDULE
Light-deprivation ensures that outdoor
growers maximize the amount of time
available for sun-grown cannabis and
don't fall victim to the weather, said of
Humboldt, California-based Kristin
Nevedal, chair of the International
Cannabis Farmers Association.
She pointed out that a lot of cannabis
growers in the mountains of Northern
California get only one crop per year,
so it's important that it comes in on
time. The set schedule offered by light
deprivation also means that growers can
plan around a definite harvest date and
adjust their operation accordingly.
Proponents of light deprivation
say the technique doesn't have
a negative impact on overall
flower quality.

She agreed that cannabis grown with
light-deprivation techniques can yield
superior flower.
" It gives you an opportunity to produce
very high-quality material, " Nevedal said.

She also prefers the way light
deprivation allows growers to finish
plants at a consistent size, say 3-4 feet,
meaning workers aren't struggling to take
down much larger plants.
