The production of industrial hemp begins with the cultivation of the parent plant from seed, the selection of which is then obtained cuttings.
During the stay of the plants in the mother room, the conditions on which the quality of the plant depends, so the temperature in the mother room should be between 21-26 degrees Celsius, humidity below 70%. Lighting mode involves 20 hours of light and 4 hours of darkness, which prevents the plant from entering the flowering stage by illuminating 24lx led lamps.
The mother plants spend three weeks in the vegetative phase, after which selection is made and the most appropriate are taken by the cuttings for vegetative propagation. All residues after the cuttings are taken are destroyed by burning.
The conditions in the propagation room needed to revive the cuttings include humidity above 70% and temperatures between 21-26 degrees Celsius.
When they root, the plants enter the vegetative growth phase. The temperature in the vegetation room is 21-26 degrees Celsius and the humidity is between 60 and 80%. Lighting mode in both the vegetation and propagation rooms involves at least 18 hours of light from 25W leds, wavelengths of 400-500 nm.
The vegetative phase (including propagation) lasts an average of 3 weeks.
Upon reaching a height of 30 cm, the plants are transferred to a greenhouse where the phenophase of flowering takes place, lasting about 9 weeks.
In the greenhouse, the temperature is between 21-26 degrees Celsius. Air humidity of 60% is gradually reduced to 45%, which prevents the possibility of mold (botritis). The humidity is regulated by a sprinkler system and dehumidifier. The irrigation system is drop by drop. Lighting mode in the flowering phase is exactly 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness. The last stage is vintage.
