First off thank you to all that post, I have been reading constantly. The wealth of knowledge is amazing.
I would like to open a discussion on growing feminized hemp for CBD outdoor in missouri. What would be the best way to grow larger scale 10-40 acres? We have been discussing with commercial farmers locally and cannabis cultivators with outdoor soil experience in other markets. I wanted to see what the GN would think?
The issues we have been discussing is missouri temps and humidity and what will they do to hemp flowers?
What soil prep would be needed? We are going to be doing soil samples shortly.
Do we need to do irrigation? I have read of some farms growing without?
It does look like i am seeing hemp and some cannabis outdoor growers are planting with a water wheel. Is that the best? I assume they are starting from seed indoor or greenhouse then transplanting?
What would be the best spacing for outdoor?
This is all based on growing Hemp for CBD extraction.
