Irrigation Essentials

Establishing an indoor cannabis growing facility comes with several hurdles and obstacles. With regulatory compliance, building permits, licensing, inspectors, and in a lot of cases, investment pressure, it is easy to overlook one of the most critical aspects of the entire process, irrigation.

Water is essential for the plants’ growth, and it provides a direct avenue for nutrient injection. It seems obvious, but in most cases, irrigation is overlooked when it comes to planning and budgetary considerations.

Irrigation systems: from the biology to the hardware

Since the first prototype in 1959, drip irrigation has experienced widespread adoption and many technological improvements. Modern drip irrigation systems are able to achieve more uniform distribution of water (and nutrients, in the case of hydroponic applications) than any other irrigation system.

Despite its popularity, many cultivators are still unsure how best to integrate drip irrigation into their space, and what equipment is required to do so. In this article, we’ll explore the answers to these and other questions many growers are afraid to ask.

  • How drip irrigation differs depending on the size of your facility
