“Blühen’s farm team was awesome to work with in 2019. Their experienced team helped with bug control, good agriculture practices, and proper storage of my hemp crop. The knowledge they provided help ensure this crop was successful.”
Blühen’s experienced horticulturists, plant pathologists, agronomists, and entomologists work directly with our farming partners to ensure the best yield and overall health of their crop.
As the 2020 planting season approaches, we understand that many farmers might be experiencing restlessness at the thought of planting hemp whether this is your fist year or seventh. If it’s your first-time planting hemp you’re likely researching hemp agronomics and wondering why there seems to be no consistency to planting methods, yields, or even harvesting. You might read that hemp is free of any pests, requires no fertilizing to succeed, and will actually replenish the land on which its grown.
Quality You Can Trust
While hemp is an incredible plant, success of a good crop is dependent on correct planting methods, appropriate nutrient regimes, and mitigation of pests that will certainly diminish yield if not properly managed.
Our services include custom integrated pest management programs tailored to each farm, discounts to consumables like fertilizers, plastic mulch, and irrigation supplies, hemp variety/strain recommendation as well as procurement, equipment recommendations and more
Blühen’s farm team shined during the 2019 farming season. We worked to procure high-yielding CBD genetics, distributed over 1 million hemp seedlings and provided farmers tools and knowledge to produce what is considered the highest quality biomass within the southeast.
Whether the end goal of your hemp crop is to be processed or sold as smokable, our goal for 2020 is to continue working with farmers to produce incredible hemp that shines.
In 2020 Grow With The Best
Blühen Botanicals Agricultural Advisory Services offer multiple levels of involvement, from seed to shelf, so that we can help you produce the highest yields from the best genetics. These services include:
Genetic Advising and Procurement
We work with farmers to source hemp plants that best match their needs. Whether a farmer wants to grow for cannabinoids, fiber, or grain, Blühen ensures that the genetics you choose will work for your intended purpose.
Discount on Consumables
Hemp is not cheap to plant, period. Proper nutrition, mitigation of pests, and access to irrigation are crucial for a successful harvest. Through our network of farmers, we offer discounts on farming materials such as fertilizers, pesticides, and irrigation materials like drip tape or plastic mulch.
Custom IPM Program Development
Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, is a hemp-growers’ best defense against yield-reducing pests. Whether hemp is produced indoors or out, growing with an IPM strategy is key to a prosperous harvest. Utilizing an IPM program aids in reducing pests such as powdery mildew, aphids, and caterpillars. A well utilized IPM program prevents pests before they reach the Economic Injury Level, or EIL.
Full-Season Cannabinoid Testing
While genetics have come a long way, ensuring you stay within compliant THC levels should remain a focal point, especially if this is your first season or you’re growing a new variety. Utilizing our network of farmers, we are able to offer cannabinoid testing through trusted labs at discounted rates. Frequent cannabinoid checks throughout the season will provide you peace of mind, also ensuring that plants are harvested at peak cannabinoid levels.
Our services and levels can be customized to match any grow, indoor or out. As this industry evolves, we want to grow with you and offer success year after year.
We offer three unique levels to help farmers find an advisory schedule that best fits their farm.
Seed Level (Novice) | Bloom Level (Intermediate) | Field Level (Advanced)
New hemp growers who want to enter their first hemp crop with a proper understanding of what it takes to grow a successful crop that isn’t lost to insects or disease. This level encompasses everything we offer making the most out of your first growing season.
Our next level is for the hemp grower who has previously produced hemp at least one year or farms a comparable labor intensive, high-cash value crop such as tomatoes or tobacco. Our Bloom level offers benefits similar to the seed level like cannabinoid testing, farm specific IPM programs, and equipment recommendations, but understands you likely don’t need the full-season
assistance found within our Seed level.
Field level is geared towards the farmer who has grown hemp multiple years and wants support more than knowledge. We understand you may not need an IPM program developed for your farm but still want access to genetic procurement and cannabinoid testing. After harvest, you can take advantage of our consolidation options to ensure your crop is stored in a location ready for buyers to inspect and load up.
