Influence of Hemp Variety and Weed Free Period on Yield in Coastal South Carolina
Hemp is becoming more agriculturally significant across in South Carolina. Little research has been conducted exploring the impact of weed competition on hemp grown in South Carolina. A field experiment was conducted in 2019 to assess yields of 6 hemp varieties commonly grown in South Carolina (Cherry Wine, Hurricane, Cherry Blossom, Therapy, T1, and Boax) when kept weed free for various periods of time (0, 1, 2, 4, and 6 weeks).
