POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF CANNABIS CULTIVATION:                                                                 NUTRIENT AND PESTICIDE USE AND VOC EMISSIONS       

 

 

Much like any crop, cannabis cultivation requires the use of water, nutrients, and chemical or biological pesticides to support optimal growth and plant health. However, the quantities of each of these inputs varies between growing location, climate, facility and/or irrigation design, plant type, and crop maturity, and some of these inputs may leach into the environment. In addition, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from plants may also be released into the atmosphere during cannabis production. This presentation will explore the use of water, fertilizers, and pesticides commonly utilized in legal cannabis production, as well as various outputs (runoff and VOCs) and their potential environmental impacts.

Format: Virtual Webinar - 60 min time slot (45 min presentation + 15 min Q&A)

Presenter: Tom Ulanowski, AAg.  Tom was recently featured as May 2021's Agrologist of the Month
