Care for, and raise, your plants right
With the right conditions, hemp is an easy plant to grow. It’s also unlike many other crops in that how you care for your plants is based on the final product you’re creating. To keep your crop on track, Arbor Vita8, provides you with the right resources. We not only help you pass state-mandated tests that occur close to harvesting, but assist you with getting the best end results from your crop.
Watch out for these crop issues
When growing hemp, the biggest thing to watch out for is rising THC levels. The second, is the emergence of male plants.
- Pull male plants immediately to prevent your crop from going to seed.
- Watch out for THC spikes, which can render your crop unusable.
How to prepare before you begin planting
As with readying your field for any crop, preparing to plant hemp is almost more involved than managing the details of cultivation. Support and assistance from Arbor Vita8 begins even before you put that first seed into the ground. We’re here to help you figure out the right tools to have and soil preparations to make for the best possible hemp crop.
The right tools
To make sure your hemp plants get the right nutrients throughout their growth cycle, a few essential tools are necessary. Focus on irrigation equipment like a drip system or raised bed shaper to ensure water goes straight to the roots of your hemp plants. Other equipment can help make planting easier, especially when you consider how many hemp seeds can fit into just one acre. A seed drill speeds things up perfectly if that’s what you’re starting with, while a transplanter makes sowing seedlings more efficient.
The proper soil
Under the right conditions, the deep tap root on hemp plants means it has an easier time drawing water and nutrients from soil. This means if your soil isn’t perfect, plants can still thrive. Make sure you have your soil tested before planting though so you can make any necessary adjustments for your hemp plants to succeed.
Under ideal conditions though, hemp likes well-aerated soil with a pH between 7.0 – 7.5. While the plants need a lot of moisture in the early weeks of growth, after, they do fine in drier conditions.
