Devastating diseases threaten your crops – and they’re not always easy to spot. Sometimes, powdery mildew will take over a plant before the signs are obvious, and soon many plants are infected. Or, botrytis rots your buds quicker than you can spot, and your crop is gone. In all cases, an ounce of prevention is worth much more than a pound of cure – you need to stop these diseases before they have a chance to hurt your bottom line. You need a way to kill them where they spread – in the air.
Common Cannabis Plant Diseases and Their Preferred Environments
Common airborne cannabis diseases include fungal threats like gray mold, powdery mildew, downy mildew and hemp canker. The conditions for each of these to thrive are similar, yet different.
- Gray mold, otherwise known as botrytis, often appears in crowded grow spaces with moderate to cool temperatures, and high humidity.
- Powdery mildew is one of the most devastating infections – it attacks in dark areas with high humidity.
- Downy mildew is similar to powdery mildew, it likes dark, crowded grow areas with too much moisture and humidity.
- Hemp Canker usually starts late in the grow cycle, and grows in cool and humid environments, similarly to gray mold.
Knowing these ideal conditions will help you mitigate your risk, but turning the humidity down and getting the temperature just right isn’t guaranteed to kill the fungal spores where they appear. To do that, you need to purify and sanitize the air – you need an AiroClean420 unit.
Killing Fungal Spores, Diseases, and More
AiroClean420 gives you the tools to protect your plants from airborne threats, like fungal diseases, bacteria, and viruses. It kills those threats before they ever have a chance to land on your plants. It all happens in the sealed reaction chamber, where cannabis plant diseases and other organic threats are destroyed – without producing any harmful emissions like ozone.
Nonstop Protection From Cannabis Plant Diseases
See for yourself how easy it is to protect your plants. Using an AiroClean420 unit is as simple as hanging the unit (or units) in your facility, connecting it, and turning it on to run continuously. With the flip of a switch, you have superior protection for your plants. Use this calculator to request a facility proposal, and find out how many units your facility will need for total protection – and start defending your crops from cannabis plant diseases.
