A Geofield Systems Ag-Series Conditioner was installed central to the various farm plots growing Industrial Hemp, within a 5 square mile radius.
Scales harvested a 29% increase of dried biomass in 2019 compared to 2018 and is looking forward to what 2020 will bring. Year over year pictures taken of cloned genetics at the end of August showed the plants were healthier and bigger. Scales was extremely pleased with the progress in August but was even more thrilled that the trend maintained through harvest. Of interest he reduced his normal watering schedule as he observed the plants were thriving on less water.
