As more states move to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes, dispensaries have become more and more prevalent to meet up demand. As the business of growing marijuana for medical use grows, serious consideration should be given to ways of improving crop yield, automation, and decreasing the price of growing. Just about the most preventable causes of lost profit in a hydroponic dispensary is a type of fungus known as powdery mildew.Powdery mildew is a very common fungus, and established fact to many farmers and gardeners. It poses a particular problem to growers of marijuana, however. The fungus thrives in an environment marked by high humidity and mid range temperatures. Unfortunately, this makes marijuana plants extremely vunerable to powdery mildew, as they are also the conditions under which cannabis grows best. Plants which are infected with powdery mildew will quickly display white patches that may eventually spread to cover the plant or even treated. As the fungus continues to replicate, the mildew will eventually cover the plant, killing it along the way.Needless to say, a fungus of the variety can cause a great deal of damage in terms of the crop yield and profitability of a medical dispensary. Certain forms of commercial fungicide exist that may kill of the mildew before it progresses too far. Unfortunately, these chemicals may only be applied during certain stages of the life span cycle of marijuana plants without negatively affecting their health. In the conducive environment that a hydroponic dispensary provides, one plant that becomes infected with powdery mildew will quickly let it spread to others, increasing the entire business expense of making usage of these fungicides. In either event, underneath line profit is cut into by the current presence of this fungus.One option for medical marijuana dispensaries that wish to avoid problems with mildew is the installing commercial grade air purification systems. Large capacity electronic home air cleaners that employ among more carbon filters can remove fungus spores from the air before they have a chance to grow on plants, reducing the likelihood of contamination spreading to the crop. This also creates a more healthful work environment for dispensary employees, who might otherwise be exposed to the mold spores. Many commercial air purifiers are also built with ultraviolet lights, which can neutralize mold spores in the air and further prevent mildew infestations.As in every branches of agriculture, the marijuana growing business will probably move toward greater sophistication and productivity as time goes on. In many other crop plants, selective hybridization and special preventative chemicals have largely been able to eliminate crop losses due to mildew. However, hydroponic dispensaries face their own unique set of problems, because they create ideal growing conditions for powdery mildew. Until further advances allow plants to be developed which are more resistant to the fungus, profit loss due to mildew in medical marijuana dispensaries is a reality of the business, and something that producers ought to be mindful of.
