The first says that using fertilizer is totally unnecessary. Those who stick to this belief say one of the advantages of developing hemp is that the plant needs no additional fertilizers. The second group says they could use just a little additional nutrients with a small budget, these people prefer less expensive alternatives such as bird droppings (especially bats’), manures, etc. And the third type of thinking believes that additional nutrients are absolutely necessary for hemp development which says it all. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 112 Answers 0 Best Answers 231 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-06-29T13:11:05-04:00Added an answer on June 29, 2020 at 1:11 pm Using fertilizer in growing hemp is NOT necessary.
