The problem with hyperaccumulators

 

Plants with the capability of accumulating heavy metals above concentrations that would typically cause harm or toxicity in plants are known as hyperaccumulators. Cannabis is a well-known hyperaccumulator with the ability to remove heavy metals contaminants from soils. This characteristic is desirable for soil remediation but troublesome when cannabis is grown for consumption.

If the nutrients you use are contaminated with heavy metals, your buds will be accumulating these heavy metals, exposing those who consume them.

 

We care about heavy metals just as much as you do

Licensed producers of cannabis are required to test their finished products for heavy metal contaminants. Plant-Prod® is pleased to make heavy metal analysis results available to growers for our Plant-Prod MJTM line. When growers are aware of heavy metal levels in their crop inputs, they can anticipate potential levels within their buds.

Introducing the Plant-Prod Duo-ToteTM

The new way to tote

 
Plant-Prod® provides soluble fertilizers to customers both in bags and in bulk. Customized formulations that are delivered in bulk simplify and speed up the preparation of large tanks of fertilizer solution. However, material compatibility limited the range of formulations available. This limitation is now behind us.

Our new Duo-ToteTM has two compartments which keep incompatible ingredients apart, avoiding caking and melting, and allowing the delivery of all formulations. The contents of the Duo-Tote can be released at the same time where they dissolve quickly and without precipitating. Suitable for larger growers, the benefits of the Duo-ToteTM are many:

One tote per tank – faster & easier

  • Formulated specifically for your size of tank and plant nutrition needs.
  • You need just one Duo-ToteTM per tank, which is simple to use and minimizes the possibility of operator error.
  • The Duo-ToteTM can be lifted over the tank using a hoist or forklift. The drawstring on the bottom releases the fertilizer into the tank.
  • No need to take delivery of numerous bags, each requiring time to open, lift and empty.
  • Speed up operations. Our customers report time savings of 75%.
