As we are coming up on harvest season I wanted to let CBD farmers know of a new opportunity for high-quality smokable CBD flower. Prices per pound for CBD flower is over 3 times the price of CBD biomass! I currently have many buyers and am looking for new growers to buy from. Please contact me if you are a grower and have CBD flower to sell. I am back at the Cannabis farm in Central Oregon. The first thing I notice is these plants are not getting enough water!
This hot dry climate and high winds are causing serious water evaporation, causing some plants to wilt.
When irrigating your farm you should be able to put your index finger one knuckle deep into the soil near the base of the plant and feel moister at the tip of your finger. If you don’t feel moisture, irrigate!
Over irrigation can cause root rot which is the prolonged exposure of the plant’s roots to overwatered conditions, which causes the roots to die, due to a lack of oxygen. Remember the keyword is prolonged!
Watering every other day, or every two days would be optimal for this farm in this region.
This farmer has another problem, see the yellowing of these leaves, it indicates a nutrient problem in the soil.
The farmer needs to test the soil in these areas to see what is going on with his fertilization and correct the problem.
For precise control of fertilization for your CBD farm, use a nutrient system that is integrated with your irrigation system.
A good irrigation system always has the right hardware, planning, design, and proper installation to get optimal results for your cannabis plants.
Remember your cannabis needs three things in harmony to thrive. Sun, water, and nutrients!
In our next episode this young farmer gets his Cannabis farm on track as he heads into harvest season and now must focus on pest control, harvesting, and selling of his Cannabis!
