this, of course, is MHO and I will add that, if you are worried about gram count, you're probably either not producing enough or are in it for the money? I stopped counting grams long ago, I guesstimate from time to time for fun, but actual numbers mean little besides the number of jars filled. It also appears you're judging different strains and grow times and thinking your numbers will show something....I can't figure what except it will say different strains produce different amounts? Comparing those numbers would only confuse things imho....but I've gone straight from bed to a wake-n-bake, so I could be :confused2: not uncommon....lol
Because that's the point of tracking GDP, to tell if the overall success increases or decreases, kind of like a grade earned for the effort. Did this one or that one actually produce more for what you put into it.
Yes, one of the goals is to find out which strains actually grow which amounts, or which nutrient lines, or light intensities or whatever. If I try a more expensive nutrient line against a cheaper one with a pair of clones, not only do I want to know if it's better, but is it enough better? At to my tracking the harvested grams, I track several other factors and traits as well.
To address some of the previous comments as to quality, the simple answer is to not grow crappy weed. I only hobby garden myself, but I'm pretty picky about what I put in.
