New to the scene of the commercial greenhouse industry is the production of hemp. This is different from the production of cannabis, as the focus is not on THC, but rather the fibers for the production of materials like clothes.
When setting up a new facility or making a transition from an older facility, planning will need to be conducted to determine the type of operation and the needed materials. Hemp plants are larger in nature along the same lines as tomato production. With the larger plants and the more space required, attention to heating and cooling, HVAC, and temperature is essential to reduce plant stress. The most common set up for hemp production is through hydroponics, as the materials are lightweight and able to be installed in closer proximity to each other.
Hemp can be a rather picky crop to grow, so the monitoring of both environmental and media conditions will need to be conducted regularly to ensure proper growth. Automation through timers and readings can be an easy solution to the close monitoring needed without adding stress to the operator. Additional research will need to be conducted on state specific requirements for the growth of hemp as the mandates and conditions for growth are different state by state. Larger crops such as hemp can be fully supported through stonewool with excellent moisture retention, root stability, and the ability to transplant easily into larger blocks to fully support production no matter the stage of growth.
