pH in Practice

Adjusting pH levels, choosing from common bases and acids for pH adjustment, understanding the sequence of pH adjusters for fertigation systems, and the importance of calibration and accurate pH measurement. 
How To Use Triologic As A Mycorrhizae Amplifier

How To Use Triologic As A Mycorrhizae Amplifier

How Front Row Ag Triologic Facilitates Mycorrhization through promotion of mycorrhizae spore germination, mycorrhizal fungal growth prior to root colonization, and promotion of the plant's ability to allow mycorrhizal colonization.
Water Cleanliness in Irrigation Systems

Water Cleanliness in Irrigation Systems

Water quality issues arise from seasonal changes, temperature shifts, and poor filter maintenance. This article compares effective pathogen risk reduction through disinfection methods like UV light, ozone, peroxides, hypochlorous acid, and chlorine compounds like Calcium Hypochlorite.
Unlock Your Grow’s Potential With This Unbelievably Simple Equation: $/ft2/day

Unlock Your Grow’s Potential With This Unbelievably Simple Equation: $/ft2/day

Calculate $/ft2/day for each cycle and cultivar, associate the outcome changes with their causes, then do whatever is required to further increase $/ft2/day. If a cheaper input (e.g. fertilizer) decreases price or yield - you can easily lose much more revenue than you saved in OpEx.

This article will discuss the use of silica (Si) in hydroponics, including: the different forms of silicon, their relevance to agriculture and hydroponic fertilizer, and functional benefits of Si in plants.
Salts Are Not Just Salts

Salts Are Not Just Salts

Not all fertilizer blends are created equal. Choosing the right blend can impact plant growth and crop quality. Discover the importance of elemental ratios, micronutrient packages, and the quality and consistency of the inputs used to create a fertilizer blend. 
An EC meter is used for mixing nutrients at the proper ratios.

Feed EC Considerations in Hydroponics

Expert advice on 6 key factors to consider when setting up a successful feed EC system for your plant growth cycle: irrigation strategy, substrate dryback and water content targets, light intensity and quality, climate considerations (VPD), and the phase of growth.
