The history of hemp cultivation in the United States dates back all the way to the early days of our country. While there was a considerable length of time when it was illegal to cultivate hemp, it was a very common practice prior to this during the colonial period. Now, with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, it is legal to grow CBD seed and hemp throughout all fifty states.
However, many modern farmers are new to the crop and therefore are unsure about how to go about production. The good news is, we are learning more and more about the best practices every day and farmers are becoming increasingly successful with every growing season.
Utah’s climate is ideal for hemp cultivation, but there are some challenges that farmers must maneuver around. Here’s some advice for new farmers wishing to grow CBD seed and clones in Utah.
Just because you’re new to hemp farming doesn’t mean that you can’t be successful in your endeavors. Hemp is a hardy crop and will endure conditions that many others won’t. However, it’s also important to understand that there are a lot of legal restrictions involved with what farmers can and cannot do. Furthermore, there will be an adjustment period as you get used to the crop’s behavior and you may have to adjust your techniques. Here are some tips that can help you navigate your first season of growing CBD seed in Utah.
Read up on the laws that apply to your state and make sure to follow all legal guidelines. In Utah, there are certain steps farmers must take before planting hemp seed in the ground. Use the resources at your disposal to stay compliant and increase your odds of success. Staying in touch with your account manager at CBD Seed Co. is always a good idea.
If you want your operations to be successful, you need to use the right supplies. This includes your selection of CBD hemp seed. Look for seed that has good breeding and high CBD ratios. Always check the accompanying COA’s.
In Utah, crops cannot contain THC levels that exceed 1%. If this requirement is not met, crops may be confiscated and destroyed. This is a detrimental loss for a hemp farmer. Test your crops often to ensure that they’re not “hot” and are within legal limits.
