Sun Water and Soil planted 2 acres of dual purpose seed in some of the most fertile land in Southern Illinois. Hliana will be harvested for fiber only. Hlesia for seed only, or so we plan. Used the grain drill planter shown, started the setting at 8 that was way too low! Layered the seed 3-4 times. The final optimal planting setting was between 20-23! Blessed with a wonderful rain 6/14. Looking for the little sprouts soon! Will keep you all informed. Looking for support in processing the fiber this year. Attached are some pictures from plant! It was so much fun, absolutely wonderful!
