In growhouses, botrytis and powdery mildew can wipe out entire harvests.
- Airborne diseases such as powdery mildew and botrytis decrease plant growth, yields, and quality, and have the potential to wipe out entire grows.
- Indoor facilities are especially vulnerable when cannabis plants are budding. Airborne spores easily attach to the bud’s trichome resin and infect the cannabis flower.
- Because of latency periods longer than two weeks, the early stages of both powdery mildew and botrytis are difficult to diagnose. That gives the disease a minimum of two weeks to spread before a problem is evident, which is why continuous air cleaning is recommended.
The Bluezone Model 420 has been used and implemented in indoor grows across the United States and Canada to help prevent powdery mildew, botrytis, fusarium and other airborne pathogens. Bluezone is a proven technology that has been tested by third parties for microbial performance. Intertek Laboratory certified Bluezone to have a 99.9% kill rate of both bacteria and mold.
