Cuttings Turn Into Energetic Rooted Clones - Zero Veg Space

Cuttings Turn Into Rooted Clones & Veg Plants In The AEtrium-2.1 SmartFarm at RAIR, Michigan - Ashley Hubbard (06:17)

RAIR is a vertically integrated aeroponic cultivator located in Michigan, USA. Ashley Hubbard is their director of cultivation and manages a highly automated state-of-the-art 22,000 square foot facility. They retail top shelf flower and consumables through their four dispensaries, and here, Ashley will give you a personal tour of their facility and grow procedures.

This segment covers their aeroponic clone & veg room where they take cuttings from their mother room and grow them into rooted clones, pinch off the tops, and in a total of 4 weeks deliver a bushy veg plant to their next available flower room. Zero soil is used throughout the facility.  Their continuous harvest process has a capacity of more than 300,000 clones per year in four 48-tray SmartFarm systems.  Their one-touch process is fully automated and redundant for their continuous harvest flow. Like their mother room, all water and nutrients, not used by the plants, are recycled in their water recapture system. Environmental and nutrient recipes are optimized for each SmartFarm with the growth and harvest process staged and synchronized for their next available flower room.
