Cannabis is a plant mentioned in ancient writings dating back several thousand years before the new era. So we cannot deny that it has been with people since ancient times as evidenced by various archaeological finds as well as records all over the world. This plant is associated with many controversies precisely because of its traditional and long-term use for many purposes. The first records date from China, where the status of potent cannabis (≥0.2% THC) is illegal today, just like in the Republic of Croatia and most European countries. What is allowed in most countries is hemp that has up to 0.2% THC. The Republic of Croatia has been working for years on a rulebook for cultivation for medical purposes that will allow companies and hopefully private individuals and organizations to grow potent cannabis for the wider market , once the ordinance is adopted. Until then, growers grow hemp mainly in the fields where hemp is grown, and if the end product is tea, seeds or fiber.
For example, in the Republic of Croatia it is allowed to grow only those varieties that are from the variety list of the European Union, ie. varieties which theoretically do not exceed the above percentage for hemp. Also, anyone who wants to grow hemp, in addition to being forced to grow only certain varieties from the mentioned list, is also obliged to report their plots under the hemp plantation to the Ministry of Agriculture. It is obligatory for the application to be filed, otherwise it is invalid. It is possible to apply as a private person or as a business entity. Details of the application can be found on the website of the Ministry of Agriculture.
The GroLine HI9814 is waterproof, easy to use, and features Hanna’s exclusive QuickCal mode. While other meters on the market use two separate probes for pH and EC/TDS, are bulky and have lower accuracy, the Hanna HI9814 delivers accurate results with one singular probe, is ergonomic, and stabilizes and calibrates in about 30 seconds. With its affordable price and practical design, users of any level can professionally monitor pH, EC/TDS, and temperature.
“I have had the opportunity to work in plants and fields in the Netherlands, Canada, America, the Czech Republic and Croatia, and today I help people who have problems growing, ie who want to start producing hemp or cannabis either in the field or in protected areas. Also, people who want to grow their own vegetables at home, for example on a closed terrace or on the kitchen wall, I help automate and design the whole project. My final and graduate theses are on the topic of cannabis, and I am currently on a doctorate on the same topic, at the Faculty of Agriculture in Zagreb. If we want to grow something properly, and be profitable in it, today the efficiency and number of harvests is the most important (cannabis / hemp flower can be grown indoors over 6 times in one year)! My favorite way of growing plants in terms of technique is the hydroponic method which cannot be done without adequate equipment. We control the plants in a hydroponic way ourselves because we give them the nutrients from which they will grow, and in this way we grow the fastest and with fertilizers we control the fitness (health) of the plants, and thus the final yield and taste. Many years of experience in industry and developed international relations through Sista d.o.o. they allow me to always be up to date with trends and novelties concerning plant production. I am able to optimize your system and improve it to get a quality-to-investment ratio because I have devices for measuring the most important components in breeding and the applicable knowledge. Through excellent cooperation with other companies and through my doctoral studies, I am able to monitor certain parameters in order to get the maximum out of the yield and adjust the production to the expected. “
