logistics

 

Logistics is generally the detailed organization and implementation of a complex operation. In a general business sense, logistics is the management of the flow of things between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet requirements of customers or corporations. The resources managed in logistics can include physical items such as food, materials, animals, equipment, and liquids; as well as intangible items, such as time and information. The logistics of physical items usually involves the integration of information flow, materials handling, production, packaging, inventory, transportation and warehousing.

We specialize in logistics management and have a proven track record of delivery, storage of goods, services, and relaying related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet our customer's requirements.

The complexity of logistics can be kept to a minimum with the working professionals at Hydroponics Inc. We are a dedicated team that works hard so your full attention can be focused on your project.

procurement

 

Procurement is the process of finding, agreeing terms, and acquiring goods, services, or works from an external source, often via a tendering or competitive bidding process. The process is used to ensure the buyer receives goods, services, or works at the best possible price, when aspects such as quality, quantity, time, and location are compared. Corporations and public bodies often define processes intended to promote fair and open competition for their business while minimizing risk, such as exposure to fraud and collusion.

Almost all purchasing decisions include factors such as delivery and handling, marginal benefit, and price fluctuations. Procurement generally involves making buying decisions under conditions of scarcity.

This is our major strength. We can get anything you need for your project, any amount and at the lowest price. We past those savings to you!

HVAC

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) is the technology of indoor and vehicular environmental comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. HVAC system design is a subdiscipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer.

HVAC is an important part of residential structures such as single family homes, apartment buildings, hotels and senior living facilities, medium to large industrial and office buildings such as skyscrapers and hospitals, on ships and submarines, and in marine environments, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity, using fresh air from outdoors.

Ventilating or ventilation (the V in HVAC) is the process of exchanging or replacing air in any space to provide high indoor air quality which involves temperature control, oxygen replenishment, and removal of moisture, odors, smoke, heat, dust, airborne bacteria, carbon dioxide, and other gases. Ventilation removes unpleasant smells and excessive moisture, introduces outside air, keeps interior building air circulating, and prevents stagnation of the interior air.

Ventilation includes both the exchange of air to the outside as well as circulation of air within the building. It is one of the most important factors for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in buildings.

 
 

Air Conditioning

Using the right AC systems is vital. Using the right size is even more important. Having contractors by your side that have installed hundreds of AC systems in many different grows is going to be important. Knowing what systems are going to last you many years of run time to what systems might last you just a few can cost you project a lot of money in the future. Our goal is to make sure you make the right choice and to make sure your units are maintained well to meet the high demand that a grow room can put on a unit.

 
 

Maintenance programs

 

Putting your project and the right maintenance program to maintain your AC systems is extremely invaluable. We offer quarterly and yearly programs cleaning and maintaining coils, checking levels in your system and overall health of a system. This can insure your AC systems are up to par and extend the life of your units many years longer.

Hydroponics Inc is a licensed contractor. Our specialties are HVAC, electrical as well as drip systems. We have been building grow rooms and projects for the last 10 years. Through that time we have learned a tremendous amount about building grows.

Integrated Pest Management Programs

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment.

Principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

  • Identify pests, their hosts and beneficial organisms before taking action. ...

  • Establish monitoring guidelines for each pest species. ...

  • Establish an action threshold for the pest. ...

  • Evaluate and implement control tactics. ...

  • Monitor, evaluate and document the results.

Integrated pest management is a safer and more environmentally sound approach. It is designed to minimize exposure to chemical pesticides. Integrated pest management (IPM) works with the life cycle of pests to create an approach that prevents and controls pests.

We currently work with clients on assisting with their integrated pest management programs and have detailed programs using beneficial insects as well as California approved spray programs. We can provide useful information on dealing with situations in your IPM program.

GREENHOUSE DESIGN

 

Plants subjected to extreme cold and heat across a 24-hour period do not grow as well as greenhouse plants and stressed plants become stunted over time. The enclosed indoor space greenhouses provide is typically temperature-controlled with heaters and air ventilation for specific plant species, such as food crops.

Temperature Control

Outdoor temperature swings range widely between day and night. Plants subjected to extreme cold and heat across a 24-hour period do not grow as well as greenhouse plants and stressed plants become stunted over time. The enclosed indoor space greenhouses provide is typically temperature-controlled with heaters and air ventilation for specific plant species, such as food crops. Timers connected to the heaters allow you to alter the temperature settings depending on the time of day. By following each plant species' temperature preferences, foliage, flowers and fruit flourish throughout the controlled space.

Carbon Dioxide Factor

Controlling indoor air movement provides the greenhouse plants with a constant supply of carbon dioxide, which they need for sugar production. Although outdoor plants have sufficient carbon dioxide levels, strategically placed horizontal fans throughout a greenhouse allows air to press closer to the foliage for peak photosynthesis action. The concentrated carbon dioxide results in larger leaves, stronger plant stems and possible early flowering and fruiting. However, air movement must be coupled with proper ventilation. Closing off the greenhouse to outside air circulation lowers indoor carbon dioxide levels because the plants use the gas quickly while transferring oxygen to the air in exchange.

Reduced Pest and Disease Exposure

Plants in greenhouses grow in containers with specifically chosen soil. Unlike an outdoor garden, your greenhouse container soil does not have the potential of harboring harmful diseases and pests. As a result, your greenhouse is practically sterile to fungi, bacteria and pests, such as borers. Without stressful pathogens and pests, the plants concentrate on healthy growth rather than repair and defense.

Considering Humidity

Plant foliage transpiration relies on a constant supply of moisture from both the roots and surrounding atmosphere for peak growth. Dry, outdoor conditions force plants to rely solely on soil moisture, which can cause water stress, especially if the roots are in drought conditions. Stunted growth and reduced resistance to pests and diseases occur when dry conditions stay constant for an outdoor plant. But greenhouses with humidity controls keep the air moist for peak plant growth. Reducing water stress by watering the roots and providing a humid environment allows each plant to concentrate its energy on fruiting and flowering.

There are many factors to consider when cultivating inside a greenhouse. We have been cultivating in greenhouses for many years and also maintain relationships with very large greenhouse cultivators from the agriculture industry to assist in greenhouse layout and design as well as work flow, cooling systems, heating systems, blackout systems, and many other systems. Our focus is not on building you the most expensive high tech greenhouse, but assisting you on keeping your cost low, greenhouse quality and production high.

Tissue testing and Soil testing

Soil testing is the best tool for monitoring soil fertility levels and providing baseline information for cost-effective fertilization programs. This information allows for management actions that adjust soil fertility status in order to meet specific forage-nutrient requirements. Routine soil testing can identify nutrient deficiencies and inadequate soil pH conditions that may negatively affect forage production. Soil tests can also indicate nutrients that are present at adequate levels, providing the opportunity to eliminate unnecessary soil amendments.

Cultivators are using plant tissue nutrient analysis more each year.  For situations where you are trying to diagnose areas of fields with possible nutrient symptoms, it is important to collect good and bad tissue samples along with good and bad soil samples in each field.  Our staff often gets questions about the time of day tissue samples are collected.

Unfortunately the Cannabis industry is lacking in this area and it can be one of the most import factors and processes in your garden. We offer tissue and soil testing services at our Mira Loma and Montclair locations. With a consultant to help look at the testing to see what your plants could be lacking. The testing will breakdown all elements of your growing medium and we can guide you on what organic additives or synthetic chelates you will need to add to make sure your plants are growing at optimal potential.

 

ELECTRICAL.jpg
 

Electrical

It’s important to understand how the electrical needs to be done. If items need to be on relays or laying out the proper design for running lights and equipment. There are many fantastic electrical companies that you have the opportunity to work with but it can be difficult to and electrical contractors that are familiar with the proper layout of a grow room. Little changes in this can go a long way especially when you factor in lean farming. The idea is to make the room as automated as possible and to make sure that electrical circuits are placed in the right location. Having to walk down the entire room to shut off a light or not being able to shut down every fan in the room by the flick of a switch can make your employees job and task a lot longer than it has to be. These items can save you thousands in the long term.

 

Trim.jpg
 

Trimming, curing & post processes

After months of attention and effort in your cannabis garden, it’s finally time to finish what you started. Many people dread the process of trimming cannabis buds (also known as “manicuring” your cannabis), but luckily there are ways to make it more enjoyable and efficient. 

Hand-Trimmed vs. Machine-Trimmed Cannabis

If you have a large-scale grow, you may have considered investing in trimming machines. Not only are they expensive, machine trimmers have a laundry list of issues with maintenance; as a result, they have not replaced hand trimming in most markets. Shape and density of the flowers are unique to the strain and vary from bud to bud. Machines standardize this varying structure, resulting in damaged trichomes and shaved buds.

Paying people to trim cannabis might be expensive, but it’s worth it if you care about transforming your plants into a quality end product. (Of course, if you have a small grow, you should be able to handle the trimming on your own.)

Whichever route you decide to go, Hydroponics Inc has all the tools you need at the lowest prices and advice you need to ensure a successful harvest. We can save you money and help you streamline your processes to ensure your success.

 

ROI.jpg
 

roi (return on investment)

 

What is Return on Investment (ROI)

Return on Investment (ROI) is a performance measure used to evaluate the efficiency of an investment or compare the efficiency of a number of different investments. ROI tries to directly measure the amount of return on an particular investment, relative to the investment’s cost. To calculate ROI, the benefit (or return) of an investment is divided by the cost of the investment. The result is expressed as a percentage or a ratio.

The return on investment formula:

ROI = (Gain from Investment - Cost of Investment) / Cost of Investment

In the above formula, "Gain from Investment” refers to the proceeds obtained from the sale of the investment of interest. Because ROI is measured as a percentage, it can be easily compared with returns from other investments, allowing one to measure a variety of types of investments against one another.

BREAKING DOWN Return on Investment (ROI)

ROI is a popular metric because of its versatility and simplicity. Essentially, ROI can be used as a rudimentary gauge of an investment’s profitability. The calculation itself is not too complicated, and it is relatively easy to interpret for its wide range of applications. If an investment’s ROI is net positive, it is probably worthwhile. But if other opportunities with higher ROIs are available, these signals can help investors eliminate or select the best options. Likewise, investors should avoid negative ROIs, which imply a net a loss.

At Hydroponics Inc, we can help you with the best ROI by helping keep your cost low while implementing cost effective practices without sacrificing the quality of your operation.
