Greenhouse Grower lately reported on N.G. Heimos Greenhouses’ entry into the hemp market by way of its partnership with Trilogene Seeds. In 2019, Trilogene planted 1.3 million feminized hemp seeds throughout the U.S., and this new alliance will improve manufacturing to greater than 100 million feminized seeds by June of 2020.
According to N.G. Heimos Greenhouses President Bernie Heimos, the firm determined to enter the hemp market as a result of “we always want to try and work with the relevant crops of today, and there is no crop more relevant than hemp.”
Heimos says N.G. Heimos Greenhouses is at present underneath growth to accommodate hemp, and it shouldn’t have an effect on the firm’s present clients in any method.
“Hemp is a legal commodity, and we are fully licensed to produce hemp,” Heimos says. “As long as it does not affect our ability to serve our customers, it will be treated like our young plant division.”
When it involves any adjustments that will need to be made inside the greenhouse to accommodate hemp manufacturing, Heimos notes that “we are weighing our options at this time.”
