I am in Indiana and I have 30 tillable acres. I find this interesting. I had not thought about CBD, I was thinking more about hemp for textiles and as a fuel additive. I will be keeping an eye on this thread. Thanks for posting about this.

Planting seedlings in Illinois. Been working on getting our method worked out. We have about 1500 in the ground. More help coming tomorrow so should be done by Tuesday evening. They spent a little too much time in the trays and got a tiny bit yellow. We put some in a fenced garden (5 acres) in rows done by the tractor and covered in plastic. To see if there is any difference. I was really surprised how they didn't stress at all from being planted. Especially because we got several inches of rain. Will take some pictures of them in the ground tomorrow.

Back home and 7000 plants planted. It took us 3 days to get everything in the ground and watered. We don't plan on doing a lot of watering because of the rain but always a good idea with new plants. Along with the fields we did a couple of rows in a fenced garden. We put in the rows with a tractor and covered them with plastic. May go back for weeding but hopefully won't have too much weeds. May also go out and make sure no males pop up.

It's a family farm, we even had a 5 year old planting in the field.

Your going t love that cover over the ground. Best way to garden is just like what your up to. My hat is off to you sir....

So what percentage might turn male, or do you have any idea?

It will be some time before you can sex them won't it? Like some what close to flowering?

Keep the story coming!
