Farmers seem to be beating the hempiculturalists to harvest this year. Rumors are flying about that the early harvest is thwarting the efforts of marijuana growers that have planted their favorite cash crop in corn fields.
Had the potheads been paying attention the GDUs and the early planting schedule, they would’ve known better and snuck back into fields to save their imperiled crop from the early arrival of cold steel cutter bars of combines that rolled through fields ahead of schedule this year. The OCJ and OSU’s CORN Newsletter may have a significant increase as a whole new audience of devoted agriculturalists brushes up on the finer points of corn production within the constraints of the wild whims of Ohio’s weather.
Pot growers, take heed, and combines drivers should beware of any unusual side effects of this year’s early harvest.
