Reducing leaf diseases in medical cannabis growth

What do you cover your greenhouse with when you start cultivating cannabis? Israeli greenhouse builder Azrom believes the 100% EFTE film F-Clean® is the best choice. According to Boyan Dulitz of Azrom the known benefits of F-Clean®, being the high efficiency of light transparency (up to 94%), energy savings and flexibility while preserving the environment, go all the more for Medical Cannabis growers.

Entry of UV-light
"F-Clean® enables the entry of UV light according to customer demand. For cannabis that would be the UV rays increasing the production of THC in the plant", he explains. "It simulates light radiation in outdoor conditions. On top of that F-Clean® allows very good diffusion of the penetrating light into the greenhouse - contributing significantly for uniform growth."

The growth climate is influenced positively by the covering as well. "The anti-drip layer reduces the exposure to moisture and leaf diseases like botrytis cinerea, being an important topic in cannabis cultivation. Due to the high demand and the high price for medical cannabis in the markets, growers want to focus on the highest quality and yield possible and with the reduction of diseases, the F-Clean covering can benefit to it. This makes the ROI of the covering relatively fast, especially if you also calculate the long durability of the material even in extreme circumstances like with high and low temperatures or in contact with chemicals." 

The enthusiasm of the Azrom team for the F-Clean® material plays an important role in the company's activities. "In our 60 years of existence we've always been highly creative in the field of engineering. This naturally doesn't allow significant deviations, but we still want to engage constantly in new developments in the greenhouses we design and the implementation of advanced technological systems in our projects around the world." 

This is shown clearly in the summer of 2016 by the launch of the Eco-Clima greenhouse model, designed specifically for the use of F-CLEAN® in the roof cover. Azrom believes that this is the best coverage exists, and eventually, it is also the most worthwhile to use as a roof covering greenhouse for vegetable growers, flowers and green leaves, even more so for Medical Cannabis growers.
