urban-gro's Director of Integrated Pest Management, Todd Statzer breaks down what cannabis cultivators growing in the state of California need to know about Pesticide Use Reports (PURs).

The company is committed to helping cannabis cultivators be efficient and remain complaint. From lighting and fertigation to benching, climate, and automated controls urban-gro offers end-to-end solutions to maximize yields. With a full in-house design team they work closely with cultivators to layout the equipment for optimal performance. Whether it is a retrofit of an existing facility or a new build, their cultivation technologies team offers unparalleled field experience across North America.

urban-gro also has a dedicated Integrated Pest Management (IPM) department. They have five full-time staff members including with a licensed Senior Pesticide Control Advisor dedicated to working with California cultivators. They have a deep understanding of pest problems and the many modalities to combat them. They look at environmental controls, chemical controls, biological controls, and cultural controls in a cultivation facility to ensure best practices for crop protection.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) promotes healthy, pest-free crops with scientific and experience-based techniques through our best-practices approach of integrated systems to prevent and treat pests. Through the prevention, exclusion, treatment and monitoring of pests, IPM takes a low-toxicity approach to preserve the marketability of your crop. More importantly, these low-toxic solutions are now required by law, while use of many common (but illegal) chemicals is no longer permitted. As the laws continue to change as to what are acceptable solutions, our IPM services can keep you both compliant and pest-free.

The company sells pesticides to licensed producers who are allowed to use those products within their state. Developed from an analysis of your current pest control tactics and outcomes, our comprehensive pest management package is a holistic, individualized pest prevention spray and drench program. Once a plan is developed, they train employees in their exclusive prevention methods (including exclusion and routine scouting) to help you avoid future pest outbreaks.

They provide the required documentation a cultivation facility needs to avoid an independent health and sanitary audit, helping cultivators stay compliant and prevent government seizure or shut down.
