Maximize Hemp Production with Drip Irrigation
Interest in industrial hemp production has increased worldwide, particularly in the United States following the passage of the Federal Farm Bill in 2018 which made industrial hemp legal to grow as an agricultural commodity. This versatile plant can be grown for fiber, seed or flower and can be applied across many industries such as textiles, food and beverage, construction, and pharmaceuticals. Consumer awareness of the benefits of hemp-based products, such as CBD, is driving demand and sparking interest in farmers to grow industrial hemp as it’s quickly transitioning into a high value crop.
As you invest in hemp production, keep in mind that irrigation is the lifeline for feeding your hemp plants so it’s vital to select the best irrigation methods to achieve better uniformity, quality and greater crop yield. With drip irrigation, your hemp plants will receive small and frequent amounts of water directly to the base of the plant, meeting the unique agronomic requirements of hemp. Drip irrigation provides the required moisture for germination, crop growth and foliage development, while maintaining minimal weed growth in the field.
Rivulis provides your hemp plants with innovative drip irrigation products for both open field (Rivulis T-Tape, Rivulis D5000 PC) and seed propagation in greenhouses (FLF Fogger, Rondo Mist Sprayer, Rondo Inverted Micro Sprinkler).
