Ashland Hemp Plot: 30 Day Progress

The Ashland hemp plot was planted May 2 by the University of Kentucky. The 20X20 ft. plot contains both a fiber and grain variety.

IMG_7146The grain variety is to the left in the photo above. It was planted with only one pass, rather than the fiber which was planted with two (seen on the right.)

IMG_7140The fiber crop has a great stand at a little over a 1 ft. to 1 1/2 ft. tall.


The grain crop is much thinner, but still has a fairly nice stand. We had a significant amount of rain following the planting, so that on top of the single pass ultimately led to a lighter crop.
