If you are an experienced artisanal Cannabis grower then you understand the value of Methods, Tools and Training to your Grow Operation (i.e. Grow Op). The reason being that you need to ensure that you're growing your staff's knowledge along with your own. We have a lot of experience with documenting processes and if you need any help on that let us know. We'd be glad to provide guidance.
When you need to get started in building your Grow Op's knowledge repository you may want to start with your primary types of grower methodologies and the underlying methods that make them up. We like to first break down the lifecycle of Cannabis into the stages of growth which span a period of 14 weeks. Here is how this breaks down:
Stage I - Seedling Stage (Cloning Stage too) Weeks 1 and 2
Stage II - Vegetative Stage; Weeks 3, 4, 5, 6
Stage III - Flowering Stage; Weeks 7, 8. 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
Now you can map your methodologies and methods to each of these 3 stages. Next, add the tools into each of these 3 stages. Last, using PowerPoint, start to build a slide deck for each of the 3 stages so that you have your content ready to go for training your staff.
Once you have completed the above tasks, then we can start a new knowledge repository (such as in Year 2) to nail down the primary requirement categories for each stage. For instance, the requirement category "Plant Nutrients" would contain all requirements pertaining to your Grow, Boost, Bloom, Cal / Mag and CarboFlush requirements. There are so many categories and requirements that we like to encourage all our employees to get into the act of building the requirements repository. That way you get everyone involved and the requirements coverage and quality is signigicantly enhanced. Our emerging forum will help get you accustomed to how this process can benefit your grow op.
As always, we encourage you to contact us with your thoughts and inputs on this topic to benefit all our Members.
