Another video from Canada with both conventional and organic crops. This one is full of detail from planting depth and soil temperature through harvest.



Again this is seen as a transition crop for Industrial producers looking to cut down on fertilizer and pesticide use while growing in a traditional three year rotation

Thanks for sharing. I have been curious about the process of growing hemp. I am a big fan of hemp seed. The nutrition profile and taste make it an excellent food. I would like to grow some here. Its too bad that it is a controlled substance in the states. Its definitely too useful to be grown here.

I think we really need an angry pitchfork wielding emoticon.

The state of Kentucky as we speak is suing the Federal Government to get back a seized order of hemp seeds.

I don't see why everyone's not upset that Canada is steeling all the business.

As soon as monsatan patents the genetics of a hemp strain, their friends in a certain administration will get it legalized. It will likely be only the patented variety though.
