It’s a really cool science project, and I’m having a great time going to work every day
Until I started working at a cannabis farm, I didn’t know anything about soil. I knew the soil was dirt, and I knew that the dirt contained pieces of rock, clay, and bones. I didn’t know much more than I learned in ninth grade biology. After working at the cannabis farm for three months, I can honestly say that soil is probably the single most important part of the whole process. Farmers have to account for these types of problems, when they are considering cannabis production and farming. The nutrient levels in the soil are measured daily, because those things can affect the growing process. There are two basic kinds of nutrients found in the ground soil. These nutrients are categorized as mobile nutrients and immobile nutrients. Cannabis plants need both of these to thrive. Mobile nutrients can move around the cannabis plants during the growing process. If there is a problem in one area, they can quickly move to help fill the void. Some mobile nutrients in the soil include Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Nitrogen. Immobile nutrients like Calcium, Silicon, Iron, and Chlorine have very little action from their first introduction. This is why monitoring the nutrient levels is so important in cannabis farming. We have a machine that measures all of the individual chemicals and minerals, and we add the necessary nutrients to correct any problems. It’s a really cool science project, and I’m having a great time going to work every day. If I work here for a year, I’ll learn everything I need to know. Then I can start my own pot farming business.
