How to cultivate Futura 75
Historically it was always planted in a massive way, with many individuals per square meter. This causes the plants to have a great vertical development but little branching. Planted just 2 inches (5cm) apart, it is easy that they surpass 3 meters of height.
Currently we have seen fields where they sow it with enough space between plants, thus branch much more and the buds are formed better.
The germination of Futura 75 takes place in mid-spring, depending on the climate rainfall. Its vegetative growth lasts about 100 to 11o days, and it flowers and ripens during the months of August and September after days shorten. Yes, it is a photoperiod strain with an average of 8 to 9 weeks of flowering but its possible to extend flowering to 10 weeks. The harvest usually arrives at the end of September, in the northern hemisphere.
One of the things to keep in mind when we want to cultivate legally is its THC content. When Futura 75 is fed moderately there is no problem, but if we fertilize intensively we can exceed that legal maximum, so we have to check the field regularly.
If you are producing Futura 75 for a low THC crop, you are advised to brew compost tea for flowering as well as pruning the flowers of pollen pods to reduce the amount of seeds produced.

Futura 75 is a high quality French industrial hemp strain.
It is especially popular in the middle of Europe, where it is a highly recommended type of hemp for creating oil, fibers and of course for producing cannabidiol-oil.

It is advisable to work the soil carefully before sowing, eliminating all clods or depressed areas and proceed with plowing at a depth of about 30 centimeters , to be done preferably in autumn and not in spring. If you do not know the soil well, it may be a good idea to false seeding to check for the presence of weeds and not to waste hemp seeds, as well as carry out preventive analyzes to verify their suitability. It is important to properly fertilize hemp crops, which need nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium like all plants. We recommend using only organic fertilizers, to which the plant responds very well. Particularly suitable are manure, slurry and compost.
Growing hemp in association with other plants can also help them grow better. Dill, Calendula, chervil, chamomile and peppermint, or example, keep insects and pests away. White clover, on the other hand, helps maintain soil health. Dried borage, being very nutritious for all living beings, including plants, is perfect to be added to our natural compost.
Irrigation is essential in indoor crops, paying particular attention that there is no lack of water in the pre-flowering phase. Outdoors, irrigation becomes necessary in periods of particular drought, always paying attention to pre-flowering, a period in which the plant requires a greater amount of water.
