During a harvest, Grow Technicians cut down mature, flowering cannabis plants, separate viable material from waste material, and output the total viable weight to a Bulk Lot for processing. Grow Technicians can customize the harvesting workflow to suit the needs of their facility.

Note: Some licence holders perform a wet trim during the harvest phase, in which Grow Technicians separate the branches from the stalks, hang the branches up to dry, and discard the waste. Other licence holders do not perform a wet trim, and instead hang the entire plants to dry. In either case, the weight output to the Bulk Lot should be the weight of all material transferred to drying racks.
Destroy any harvest waste. This may include material removed during a wet trim, spilled material, or non-viable material like stalks and leaves.
Click Record Destruction. This opens an index of all Destruction Lots saved to the licence holder's system.
