As we near federal reclassification of hemp, we want to know who are our @memberdirectory community hemp farmers? Do you grow hemp? Do you have a hemp-farming license pending? We want to hear about it!
While I have not ventured down this path yet, I am taking part in a 120 acre grow in Vermont this upcoming season. Looking forward to being an “old school” farmer with a tractor and some overalls. Also looking forward to some new learning curves and will be asking a few questions here, and hopefully sharing some experiences come fall time.
We would love to hear about this journey into conventional field production! I also am considering plowing under some acreage down on my ranch or up on some land I have in Colorado. Looking forward to seeing what your learning curve is like!
May I recommend Bibs from round house the last USA manufacturer of hickory strip blue.
As for “old school” with IPM the publication around Hemp for victory are really good. You are going to need to adjust some practices for pot vs Hemp because the caltivar section process has introduced some weird stuff.
I would also look at concentrates from your own cultivars a last resort biocide. This is real pH dependent on the spray water, I think it is 6.8 but need to verify.
Lastly you an @Farmer_Dan need to talk. You both have alot in common.
