There's two big updates I'll be making this year that will help me push the weights further up, first off the greenhouse will be getting a makeover and about 2000 square feet added on to it, the greenhouse will now be 100 feet x 55 feet I had to custom order new plastic for this upgrade I'll start work on the expansion this Thursday, another big upgrade will be artificial lighting I'll have 2-3 plants under supplemental lighting, I decided to do half the plants because I'm not 100% sure what the effects will be, I'm targeting 200-250 umols in the leaf canopy with will help weight gains on cloudy days, there's going to be 20 plus 350-500 watt Leds over these plants, it was a big investment but I believe it will be worth it in the end.
