Grow Journal of the Month: May 2017
I knew I wasn't the only one who remembered paraquat. And the long line of folks willing to make a buck off of selling weed sprayed with it; the dry spells back then left little product to buy.
I tried farming, I quit . I have 144 acres which 98 is farm land . Working with investors to grow hemp next year . That’s all they’ll let us grow here . I averaged $300-600 an acre with the Sudan and now the two classes I took on the hemp said I could make $20,000 an acre before cost . There cost explanation was some idiot that I can tell didn’t have a clue as to what he was talking about (government agent)
I’m a grower and I wanted to be a farmer but the organic farm next door (55acres) produces mega billions of fungus gnats that constantly attacks my place is the #2 problem keeping me at bay . Hopefully next year I can be a farmer.
Needed you at the meeting there was no discussion on crop insurance but this is Texas The double in price would be awesome, the other friend that grew mammoth sunflowers and the gnats hurt his yields or he would have got after the hemp this year . I know he had gotten a check back in February and I will ask if that’s what he had the insurance . I can’t go to WinStar to roll the dice the corona virus has gone wild around here !Well ask the "agent" if you can get crop insurance for your hemp crop. Then you can reflect on the myriad of pests and diseases that we get growing these plants.
Hay might be a much better choice it just doubled in price this year. You can harvest maybe 3-6 times per season depending on your zone. With no crop insurance you be rolling the dice at best.
yea, same here.corona virus has gone wild around here
Can't you spray for that?gnats hurt his yields or he would have got after the hemp this year
yea, same here.
who'd of thought the Chinese could come up with something that would last so long, eh?
Can't you spray for that?
They breed in the soil don't they?
There must be a root soak to treat them.
Yes I remember those days well... I was a teenager mid to late 70's. We got some nasty tasting weed more than a few times... A friend of mine wrote a song "I don't want no paraquat pot, I wanna live the life that I got" I don't remember the rest.I knew I wasn't the only one who remembered paraquat. And the long line of folks willing to make a buck off of selling weed sprayed with it; the dry spells back then left little product to buy.
Trump’s after the cocane, I remember back in the early to late 70’s you could do a small line and get off around here you can do the whole 8 ball and not get what we got out of the line !Paraquat still in use today and the USA is still spraying it on foreign countries in central and south America. That war on drugs... its still happening. Vote and lets stop the madness.
Glyphosate (round up) is also being used.
Quoted from an article:
" Colombian President Iván Duque Márquez has been facing pressure to resume glyphosate spraying from U.S. President Donald Trump"
I can dig the profit motive .. I am a capitalist.
But, I take pride in my work product; I want to be able to put my name on it.
