The Hemp Mine is launching a new open Technical Support Series for the hemp industry. This series and other informative videos can be found on The Hemp Mine YouTube channel, http://bit.ly/TheHempMineYouTube The initial video in the series focuses on Photoperiodism and how it affects cannabis growth, flowering, and harvest.
Travis Higginbotham of The Hemp Mine presents the first topic of Photoperiodism. This in-depth video explains the concept of Photoperiodism as it relates to indoor and outdoor cannabis production. Photoperiodism is broken down into its different classes and typical indoor and field grown cannabis schedules are discussed. Lessons from mature horticultural markets such as floriculture can be effectively implemented to increase production and yield in the cannabis market.
The Hemp Mine’s Hemp Planting Map is also revealed, and Travis explains its online interactive use. The Hemp Planting Map is an incredible tool for growers throughout the US to pinpoint hyperlocal data about frost dates and day length. The map was created in conjunction with Professor Joanne Logan of the Herbert College of Agriculture, University of Tennessee Knoxville. The Hemp Planting Map can be found on The Hemp Mine’s website under HPM tab, https://thehempmine.com/pages/hemp-planting-map.
“We want to offer as much technical support to our farmers as possible, knowing the risk we are all taking getting into hemp in the first place. With such an unpredictable market, let us at least help ensure your production is predictable and goes as planned. This is our job as plant breeders.” –Travis Higginbotham
Part two of Photoperiodism in cannabis will be presented by Dr. Allison Justice in an upcoming video of the Technical Support Series.
