How cultivators can prepare for a cannabis harvest

Both indoor and outdoor marijuana and hemp growers can give themselves a leg up by thinking ahead when it comes to arguably the most crucial step in the entire cultivation process: harvest.

Cultivators aiming to dial in their harvest techniques should consider the following:

  • Have a plan to test crops to determine cannabinoid content and when to cut them down.
  • Know that defoliating plants early can mean less plant handling later.
  • Determine whether flushing out nutrients a couple weeks ahead of time is necessary.
  • Prepare a clean, climate-controlled space for storing material.
