Vegetation – Time to Apply Yield Improvement Techniques

Probably all growers have heard of methods for increasing cannabis yields. So, they can be brought to life only at the vegetation stage, since they all cause stress in the plant. It takes time to recover from it, and the plant has it only at this stage of development, because the duration of flowering is genetically limited.

If you apply these methods during flowering, then cannabis will focus all vitality on recovery, which will have an extremely negative effect on the formation of inflorescences. The quantity and quality of the crop will decline.

Also, productivity techniques are only suitable for photoperiod varieties. The grower can easily lengthen their growing season by giving the plant time to mature and grow.

You can increase the yield of one particular hemp bush using the following methods:

Topping is cutting off the top of the main stem of the marijuana, causing it to bifurcate. As a result, the plant grows two tops, and the development of the lower branches is also stimulated. With the help of topping, you can control the growth of cannabis bushes;
FIM cropping. Very much like topping, but the grower does not cut off the entire crown, but only part of it. As a result, it branches into 4 or more central branches. Cannabis continues to grow rapidly and the development of secondary shoots is declining;
Supercropping. It means softening and bending of the main stem. It stimulates the development of lateral shoots, and also allows you to control the growth of the plant;
LST. The central cannabis stem is folded without breaking, and then fixed in a horizontal position parallel to the ground. As a result, all secondary shoots located on the upper side rush upward, turning into a kind of central cola;
ScrOG (Green Screen). A grid is installed above the plant, which stops its vertical development. The branches that reach the screen begin to grow in a horizontal plane, creating a kind of green carpet. As a result, all tops receive the same amount of light and develop evenly, producing many voluminous resinous inflorescences.
