Parkland Industrial Hemp Growers Plant Growth Regulator Evaluation
To evaluate wheat varieties for the Parkland Coop
The results are shown below in Figures 1 and 2. Although PGR application appears to have reduced the overall height of the plants compared to the control, there were no significant differences between treatments. This suggests that application of PGR does not reliably reduce the height of the hemp variety (Canda) for the application stages used in this trial.
Field management of hemp continues to be a concern to hemp growers. In particular, hemp growers who are not looking for a fibre harvest but who are rather growing for the grain harvest, are looking for ways to manage the height of the hemp plant in order to make it easier to get off the field.
PCDF and PIHG co-developed a trial looking at the effect of differently timed applications of PGRs on height and on yield.
