Brian, What do you recommend for a 30HP tractor? I would like to run a plastic mulch & drip tape layer -- putting in beds for about 9,000 seedlings to transplant next year. I am also possibly interested in a transplanter that will assist with transplanting onto/into laid plastic mulch.

I would suggest a 30hp tractor is kind of small for many things. It could handle a basic mulch layer. Drip tape is normally just an option to add. You'll need to check lift capacity to use a Transplanter. Does tractor have a loader? That would help with weight capacity. So you are doing maybe 4-5 acres of plantings next year? We handle Checchi & Magli (imported ) , Mechanical Transplanter ( USA ) lines. They both offer mulch layers. Mechanical Transplanter will be cheaper. Happy to talk more with you. Suggest a phone call a better way to have this conversation. Thanks, Brian

Forgot to mention that the Wolf model from Checchi & Magli would be a good choice for what you are doing. Will plant through plastic or work on bare ground. The Transplanter should have a water tank & water valve device with it to give plants a drink when they go in the ground.

  • I am interested in growing hemp for cbd this coming summer and had a couple of questions. I have 3.5 acres I want to produce hemp for cbd. What is the best option , seeds or clones? If seeds what do I plant them with? For both, where do I buy these at? The other thing is that I don’t have the space to dry the hemp so am i able to sell it out of the field?
