In March of 2020, the Texas Department of Agriculture opened their online hemp application portal. This means that prospective hemp farmers could easily apply to grow CBD seed and clones in Texas by completing a few simple forms online. This is a huge change for Texas, which had previously been one of the least CBD-friendly states.
Now, as farmers head into the growing season, they’re starting to understand what cultivation of the crop looks like first-hand. And for some, it’s much different than expected. Here are some of the common challenges that Texas hemp farmers are facing and how to overcome them.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. And no one is more stubborn and has more will power than a Texan. Hemp farmers in Texas may be encountering some difficult hurdles right now, but solutions are bound to be found as they press forward. Here’s our advice for overcoming some of the most common problems experienced from growing CBD seed in Texas.
Some say that Texas arrived to the hemp scene too late. There’s concerns about how growers and producers will be able to compete in a market that’s becoming increasingly crowded. Eventually, supply could outweigh demand.
Our advice: Get started now. You’re not behind. Demand still exceeds supply when it comes to hemp and CBD products. It’s not too late to start growing CBD seed in Texas.
Farmers in Texas and elsewhere are quickly finding out that not all CBD seed is equal. This is causing major problems during the growing season.
Our advice: Read COAs and only buy seed from trusted sources. Or save yourself the trouble and buy from CBD Seed Co. When you work with us, the quality of your seed is guaranteed.
Texas’ climate is extremely diverse. Therefore, there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to hemp cultivation. Farmers planting CBD seed in Austin are going to have to follow different protocol than those planting seed in Lubbock.
Our advice: Take your region’s climate and weather into consideration when it comes to planting seed and determining your fertilizer strategy. Ask other farmers for advice. Or work with your account manager at CBD Seed Co. to find out what methods are recommended for hemp farms in your area.
