Mulberry Orchard/Gajdzik Farms – Kirstin is standing in a row of Santhica planted on May 23, 2016. This variety is from France and seems to be performing quite well for fiber. Photo taken July 15, 2016.

Mulberry Orchard/Gajdzik Farms -Two rows of Sterling Gold, a domestic variety out of Colorado. It was also planted May 23, 2016 and experienced some weed pressure (pigweed & johnson grass.) As you can see, we planted dense enough so the crop was able to choke out most of them. Photo taken July 15, 2016.

Locust Grove (Affiliate) – This plot was planted on May 6 and experienced quite a bit of weed pressure. The plants were not dense enough to fight off all the weed pressure, but managed to hold its own in some spots like this one. Photo taken July 21.

Locust Grove – This variety also bloomed later than others, therefore it did not have as much time to get ahead of the weeds. Planted on May 6, photo taken July 21.


 

Lexington

Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate – This was our first research plot planted by the University of Kentucky on May 2. This photo was taken on July 8, 2016.

Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate – Futura 75 was planted for fiber and Felina 32 was planted for grain. Ironically, the Futura 75 was planted so dense that it was forced to fight for the sun and nutrients. Felina 32 was planted less dense and has now surpassed the Futura 75 because it had less competition.

If you’re interested in seeing any of the plots in person, we offer tours and most of the locations allow walk-in visitors. For more information, contact us at unitedhempindustries@gmail.com.
