Organic grower, IPM specialist and creator of the cannabis cultivation YouTube page Zenthanol Matthew Gates is on the podcast to talk about some of the amazing knowledge and practices he has picked up from years of studying cannabis cultivation. Matthew talks about his love of organic growing, and why he is so passionate about regenerative soil science. Then the conversation turns towards IPM, and Matthew shares a great overview of the practice itself, as well as some best practices for growers to implement IPM in their operations. He goes on to discuss the importance of studying your local environment, and the specific pests that live within your area- determining which pests you face is critical in choosing a correct pest management strategy. Matthew then talks about the cannabis cryptic virus, which leads to a conversation about dudding, and other similar plant ailments. The guys also discuss what excites Matthew most about studying the cannabis plant, and the similarities he draws between the rhizhosphere and the human microbiome.
