The New Mexico Agricultural Department is located on the New Mexico State University campus, only a few miles away from the Rich Global Hemp Headquarters. This allows us to work closely together on projects to foster collaboration and broaden the available resources for the hemp industry, as well as help direct and prioritize focus on the key issues. Keeping a close eye on policy and how that will affect the hemp commerce is extremely important for decision making. When meeting with the New Mexico Department of Agriculture, it is apparent that farmers participating in the New Mexico hemp program have someone in their corner who wants nothing else, but for the hemp industry to succeed and thrive.
You have the capability to purchase seeds and clones. Which do you choose?
Seeds can be enticing due to lower perceived cost, but you don’t really know what you are getting. Bad seeds can give you poor yields, male plants that ruin your crops (and you neighbor’s), and bad germination rates. With clones you can actually see a live plant and ideally a COA (Certificate of Analysis) from the mother plant to tell you what the CBD/THC mix is.
