These no till females are beasts! I believe the largest is about 5-6 ft right now but,we have a few hundred REALLY large bushy Hemp plants that are just healthy as can be.
Only fed water through veg.✅ NOTHING else.
Not once have these received ANY applied amendments or nutrients.
These plants are thriving off the natural environmental factors present. The surrounding native wildflowers and native plants bring in beneficial predators ,share nutrients, provide wind protection, and even help with an amazing amount of moisture retention.
This field has plants two and three times the size of the tilled planted field and,is using not even half of the water the tilled side is. 👍🌱
People ask us about weed control.???
This having been our first large scale #notill run, allowing last years microlife to live and to help sustain this years crops,it was hard at first to allow nature to take its course.
This entire field was never planted. It grew wild from last years crop that was seeded by a neighboring fly by night hemp farm. When the plants where harvested they where left in the field to dry on the ground.🙄😥🤯😳😱(not our style of drying. Alfalfa farmers do this normally.) Upon collecting the plants from the field,seed fell and the rains that flooded NV early May brought this entire 2.5 acre field back to life. Without a single seed having been planted.🤯 Now what you see did not just come from no maintenance. We have utilized the water wheels onsite as well as hose waterings. In the meantime of finishing this fields irrigation and we approach flowering time,we will be implementing an organic feeding schedule for this field. This will be to keep not only the hemp plants watered but,every living native plant,insect,and animals in this alive ecosystem, all play a part in the highest environmental genetic potential & health of this field. COMPLETELY pesticide FREE ,NO🚫weed killers full of glysophates have been sprayed or applied to either the no till or the tilled. We are already getting the predatory insects like ladybugs,praying mantis,and many more,transitioning over to the tilled side to put in work on anything trying to destroy the crops.
