Back in 2017, Quest worked closely with Cannabis Business Times to publish the first “Smart Humidity Special Report.” Our goal was to educate the industry and provide helpful and thorough information around the role humidity plays in indoor cultivations. This year, we are back with an updated report.
Not surprisingly, both pest and disease management and humidity control remain some of the top challenges in cannabis cultivation operations today. These two things are tightly interwoven and have a large impact on each other. The best way to combat these issues is by prevention. By maintaining proper humidity, growers can create an environment where it is difficult for pests and disease to thrive. With growing concern over pesticide use and more rigorous product testing, humidity control remains the most effective and healthy way to manage these types of issues.
Quest has a long history of humidity control in both indoor gardening as well as a breadth of other industries. We were one of the first companies over a decade ago to recognize the important role humidity played in the success of a cultivator and the need for high-quality, efficient dehumidification. Since then, we have worked hand-in-hand with thousands of operators across the globe, dialing in their environmental control to enable them to grow high-quality product that is free of pests and disease.
This year’s report will feature insights around prevention, surveys that show current trends such as growing conditions, and helpful information around VPD and what it means. More than ever, producing consistent, high-quality products is a must for a successful cultivator. We hope this report aids in that effort. Beyond this, we have many helpful resources on our website (questclimate.com/blog).
We look forward to working with you in your upcoming ventures.
