Indoor/outdoor cannabis cultivation; Entry protocols; Cannabis cultivation space entry protocols


With new indoor and outdoor cannabis cultivation spaces opening up and currently existing all over the world, there is a need for well defined entry protocols. Proper entry protocols are vital to keeping cannabis cultivation spaces clean and free of crop threatening pests and pathogens. Because of the variety of different cultivation space designs and various environmental factors, several different approaches to entering these spaces will be necessary. This guide would aim to define several options. This guide standard will be used by cannabis cultivators looking to build or improve on their entry protocols.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
