“The first of three planned 2021 crops is already underway with a quarter of the summer harvest in the ground; 1 983 clones have filled 500 square meters of canopy. Bophelo anticipates planting 6 000 autoflower plants to fill an additional 2 000 square meters of hoop houses by the end of January 2021,” says Halo update.
Halo says by April 2021, Bophelo expects the harvest to yield approximately 800 kilograms of trimmed flower and 800 kilograms of material to produce medicinal cannabis oils. Bophelo plans to plant second and third crop within 2021.
To support a planned year-round perpetual harvest and future exports to MedCan, Bophelo has also launched a Mother Program with diverse strains including those from OG DNA Genetics. Currently, 40 mother plants across ten strains are thriving. Bophelo plans to grow the mother stock to 150 plants across more strains by continuing the strain hunt.
