Cannabis Pesticide Control Plan | Cannabis Pest Management IPM Plan
This Pest Management Plan is unique among our Operating Plans because it addresses both Pesticide Control, which pertains to managing chemicals in the workplace, natural environment and in consumable products AND IPM Pest Management, which pertains to preventing, monitoring, identifying and treating common cannabis pest infestations. So this document serves as both a pre-license and post license operating plan with Standard Operating Procedures.
The term “pest” includes both insects and microbial infections (such as Powdery Mildew, Botrytis, Fusarium and Pythium), and managing these problems is absolutely critical to succeeding as a commercial cannabis cultivator. Newbies often underestimate the risk that pest problems pose to their bottom line and how likely they are to encounter these problems, so I just want to remind you of that risk now, while you are still planning your project. The right design considerations along with daily protocols can keep pests and pesticides under control so that cultivators can focus simply on growing cannabis, rather than damage control once an infestation has become full blown.
