The season is in full swing and there are some crucial things you should be doing to make sure you’re maximizing the most from your crop:
Don’t Ignore Micro-Nutrient Levels – the little siblings of the macro nutrients – micro-nutrients like Boron and Manganese – aren’t often discussed but are one of the largest keys to unlocking the potential of your hemp plant. Making sure these micro-nutrient levels are at optimal levels in your soil profile are an often overlooked part of maximizing flower production.
IPM. IPM. IPM. – Keeping those plants healthy starts with keeping the pests at bay. Going into planting you should understand and have an extensive plan in place for integrated pest management. A good offense is the best defense when it comes to dealing with pests and hemp crops. Get ahead of the problem.
You Need More Inputs Than You Might Think – this is an intensive crop to grow, not unlike corn, and it takes high volumes of inputs to produce high amounts of flower. In order to do this right, you’re going to need to be prepared with the right inputs and the understanding of the right time to apply them. Hemp isn’t a crop you can throw inputs on the ground and expect it to thrive.
Start with High Quality Genetics – there’s a reason we’ve gone to so much research into the genetics we offer because it doesn’t matter if you had the best programs for the three things we’ve mentioned above, if you’re starting with subpar genetics, you just won’t see the kind of production levels you’d like. Make sure that what you plant comes from solid seed that has uniformity and has been thoroughly vetted.
