Looking for a simplified path to determining a deficiency or issue in your crops? Check out our our dichotomous key for understanding nutrient deficiencies.
One of the most important skills any grower can have is the ability to visually identify a deficiency or issue with their crop. Proper scouting and early identification of nutrient or IPM issues is critical to staying on target with your harvest goals. This can be confusing for newer growers and can take decades to learn, requiring constant repetition. This is especially true for cannabis growers with few scientifically backed representative images available due to prohibition.
What is needed is a dichotomous key. Rather than relying on memorization, utilizing a dichotomous key gives a clear and simplified path to determining the nutrient deficiency at hand. The staff at KIS has built this off of existing models from more traditional agriculture. Our hope is that it will be of value for all growers. Pulling from traditional agricultural tools we have crafted a useful key for all growers but also specifically for cannabis growers. KIS is here to support all forms of cultivation in an effort to move towards sustainable practices. Proper utilization of the appropriate nutrients is key to managing these strategies. Before we teach you the process for determining nutrient deficiencies we have a very important decision to make. Is this really a nutrient issue?
