Hello,

I'm part of a small cooperative starting growing industrial hemp for CBD extraction in Portugal. We're in year zero so it's safe to say we know very little about it right now, but we're learning rapidly. Our first crop is underway, there are problems with soil preparation and weeds.

I came across this video on Facebook of Shatibaba and I would love to find some information on the technique used there: https://www.facebook.com/mrniceseedbank/videos/272616443308235/

I have a lot of questions on this. What is that foil being used? How is the soil prepared for it? Won't this sweat and foster fungus? Is it something used in dry climate only?

Hello CannaFish,

thank you very much for the information! I would still be worried about fungus, as this would create a hot and humid atmosphere, wouldn't you say? Perhaps using a fungicide would be a good idea? Something biological, like Serenade?
