Seedo’s patent-pending lighting system self-adjusts according to your plant’s growth stage.
Seedo Farm’s turnkey automated growing containers could allow communities in high-risk areas to grow their food locally without the fear of crop loss due to environmental and climate factors.
It can grow other things too but it’s safe to say, most people are using Seedo to grow weed.
“We are setting our sights on new market segments and successfully expanding around the world. This relationship will introduce European consumers to our automated growing technology, and will give them the capabilities to grow their own plants – hemp, vegetables, fresh herbs, and flowers – at home,” said Seedo CEO Zohar Levy.
The airtight, stackable containers will allow cultivators to optimize land-use and reduce the environmental footprint of their farming operations.
The AgriTech firm also has a much larger version of its technology in the form of Seedo Farm.
This article by Grow Weed Easy gives you an in-depth look at how CO2 works.
It’s a well-known fact in the agricultural world that high concentrations of CO2 can improve the growth and yield of a crop. Greenhouse farmers have been doing it for years. How does it work? In high-light situations, supplying more CO2 allows your plants to use more of that light, which results in increased photosynthesis and therefore faster growth and bigger yields.
In a natural ‘outside’ atmosphere CO2 moves at around 400 ppm. However, it’s been shown that the herb plant can benefit from up to 3 times that, between 1200 – 1500 ppm.
How Can Seedo Help?
CO2 isn’t a magic formula that you can just increase and automatically see a bigger yield and faster growth. As with everything, it takes expertise and knowledge of how to use it. You’ll need to consider positioning, the right amount of light and timing.
CO2 for Home Growing
What springs to mind when you think of CO2? Global Warming is probably pretty high on the list. One of the main causes of global warming and the effect it’s having on our earth is the rise of CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere.
Snoop Dogg is also a long-time cannabis entrepreneur. In 2015, he co-founded the media organization Merry Jane, which focuses on news about cannabis, and launched a new line of cannabis products called Leafs by Snoop offering a range of flowers, concentrates, and edibles.
And in an interview last week, he revealed that he employs a full-time “blunt roller” who he pays between $40,000 to $50,000 per year, and whose sole responsibility is to prepare Snoop’s preferred marijuana delivery system.
As part of the partnership, Seedo said Snoop Dogg will help “educate consumers on the environmental benefits and social opportunity of Seedo’s home and commercial grow technology” and contribute to a social responsibility program that will be sharing Seedo’s growing practices. The program will also provide donated Seedo products to local communities, neighborhood organizations, and Snoop’s community of influencers, the company said.
