New on the scene and rapidly growing more popular for its high return on investment, autoflowering CBD hemp is a no-brainer for new and seasoned farmers.
Growing for flower and CBD extraction? The top 3 reasons cannabis farmers love this day-neutral varietal include its:
Using advanced autoflower genetics, we engineered Autopilot 1.0 to be:
What farmers like most about autoflower is that it offers consistency, control and flexibility. Born from ruderalis genes, autoflower is not photoperiod dependent and can thrive in a variety of geographic locations. Plus, shorter cycles means the potential for more harvests per season.
Fortune20inc is a biomass and hemp flower procurement company. One of the best things that we have found with the Autopilot 1.0 is that it is giving us a positioning where we are first to market. We are coming to market with hemp flower a month to 2 months before others.Not only are we able to fulfill our supply chains, but we are doing it with quality, and we are doing it a month before all the others. So personally, if I can find as much Autopilot as possible, that would only make us better positioned for the future to form and bond and reinforce our positions with our partners back east and throughout the whole country as their flower source.
Autopilot has been awesome. We had 100% pop rate. With transplanting, they all took right off. We had no casualties and they are doing well.The yield of the plant looks awesome. Low leaf to bud ratio. I noticed it was super dense. We only have an acre of it planted, and it has been doing really well. Our future plan for next year is to do all Autopilot on our 16 acres.
One thing that is great about the Autopilot is the consistency. Our plants were all within a couple inches of each other, as far as height goes. They are super uniform, and they all looked almost identical. A lot of the other stuff that we have been seeing growing, whether it be autoflower or traditional hemp plant you see all different types of phenotypes and other variations in those plants. We didn’t see that with the Autopilot.
We are hard at work building a seed calculator to help you quickly determine the cost and recommended quantity of Autopilot 1.0 (autoflower hemp seed) for your acreage. Until we launch our shiny new tool, please submit your request below and we’ll walk you through 2019 pricing.
Engineering our first day-neutral varietal took a village. Even before we stepped foot in the greenhouse, we consulted with numerous leaders in ag tech — hemp farmers, extraction engineers, biochemists, breeders and geneticists throughout the US — to mine data and gather insights. Our next step involved acquiring seeds with superior genetics.
We began crossbreeding with cannabis ruderalis — the only one of the three genetic types of cannabis that flower based on age due to its geographic roots in colder parts of the world. To thrive in those harsh climates where summers are shorter, ruderalis evolved to be a sturdier plant that is faster to harvest. By nature, ruderalis also has a high cannabidiol (CBD) content.
Autopilot 1.0 is the result of our extensive research, strategic acquisition and engineering. With proven genetics and supply chain networks, our new plant is unlike anything else on the market.
With 65 years of combined experience in commercial agriculture — including industrial hemp and traditional crops — our founders sought out the perfect plot from which to begin producing the highest quality day-neutral (autoflower hemp) seed possible. In early 2019, they landed on the 100-year-old Leary Plant Farm near colonial Edenton, North Carolina.
The farm’s history is just as rich as the varietal, itself. A family owned operation since the 1950s, our farm is tucked between the Chowan River and the Albemarle Sound in the tranquil, yet fertile coastal plain of northeastern North Carolina. In fact, Native Americans named our community Rocky Hock, which means “beautiful garden.”
Today, we have become one of the largest CBD hemp seed production facilities in North America. Our farm boasts nearly 100 acres, 12 of which are taken up by our greenhouse where our experienced cannabis growers on the cutting edge of autoflower genetics and the Leary Farm family of team members — some of which have been working this exact land for more than 40 years — can work under one roof, and for one purpose: to continue growing the hemp industry in a way that will make positive change in the world.
