Farming Practice

farming practice for
Grain

When growing for grain it is essential that a well drained seed bed is established before planting. Light moisture with a soil temperature around 50 degrees F is most preferable. It is recommended to plant rows in 7-16 inch row spacing at a depth of between .5 and 1 inch. Combining is recommended when the plant matures in 90-120 days.

farming practice for
Fiber

When growing for fiber, best results follow a fall cover crop. It is recommended that a well drained seed bed is established before planting. Light moisture with a soil temperature around 50 degrees F is most preferable. It is recommended to plant rows 5-12 inches apart with a depth of less than .5 inches. A sickle bar is recommended to cut the crop when 20% of the crop begins to flower.

farming practice for
CBD

When growing for CBD, it is extremely important to understand that this crop will be purchased and used be individuals that may be medically complicated. It is very important that the entire process be controlled and extensive care to be taken. Genetics are very important and cloning is the best way to ensure that you are copying the exact genetics you are wanting to work with. Natural organic matter, adequate spacing between plant and combative pests are recommended to ensure a successful crop.

Nutrients

A well drained seed bed is recommended for growing industrial hemp. When preparing the seed bed it is recommended that you use nutrient requirements when preparing for 30 bu soy beans or 120 bu corn. Organic practices are suggested due to the fact that no additives are approved for use on industrial hemp crops.

Requirements for Hemp Growth
Soil

Soil requirements are extremely important, and it is recommended that soil samples be taken to be analyzed. pH should range between 6.3 to 7.8 and the soil should contain at least 3.5% organic matter, the more organic matter the better. Clay soils are not recommended for hemp growth due to the clay being easily compacted, which may lead to damage to the plants. Sandy soils provide little natural fertility so a sandy, clay loamy soil is preferred.

farming practice for
Cloning

Propagating for CBD can be done by using what is referred to as cloning, otherwise known as asexual reproduction. Clones are genetically identical to the plant that the cutting is taken from so in instances of strict requirements on THC levels this method is best to ensure you have no variances from one plant to another. Most all CBD is derived from female only plants so Cloning also guarantees that you will not have males in with your female plants that would cross pollinate your crop leaving you a final product that would not be able to be sold at premium prices on the market.
