We started to test various strains of industrial hemp on different parts of Croatia. Our analysis showed that "Slavonia" is the best candidate due to high amount of flat grounds, not existing industrialization, clean water and fertile ground that is ideal for growing industrial hemp.
We prepared all agriculture prerequisites and purchased additional lands and started to prepare fields for ecological production. As ecological production is highly demanding we had to wait for next year to implement more humus and biomass into fields.
This year was ideal for our tests and we have developed "return to Earth" system where we use green manure to return to soil all nutrients that we take during harvest of hemp. We tested and found 3 different ideal subcultures to be before and after industrial hemp. We filled official farm company registration at end of year.
On 26.1.2015 we got official Farm approval and all needed licences to grow industrial hemp official Farm name is "Opg Hrzica". This was first year that we produced extra quality hemp and started to sell it on markets worldwide. This was one of the hardest year in our region with minimum rain amounts where we suffered 80% of loss due tu harsh weather. However this 20% harvested hemp showed such quality that it will be hard to keep up with this year in any other year that is coming. We started our brand "Eco-cannabis"
This year was full success, our brand "Eco-Cannabis" got its webpage - all hemp is harvested, conditions was ideal and results are here. We are happy that all our hemp have over 2.2% cbd in lab tests! Once again we are stocked for sale.
We added new strains in our cultivation kompolti, and tiborzsalasz we rejected as it showed poor results. Sales are steady and we introduced new packs for our hemp products. Thus now our cbd is from 3-4% - well that is improvement that matters!
The row planting was partial success, giving us tools to fight weeds but reducing overall production. Still waiting for analysis results!
