Lawn fertilizer schedules are in a free fall.
According to the American Lawn Federation, the industry is now operating on a two-day cycle, with farmers using one day to harvest weed and the next day to apply fertilizer.
In a bid to keep growers up-to-date on the best fertilizer, farmers have been forced to change fertilizer schedules.
That’s why we’re seeing farmers switch from one day of harvest to the next.
According to a report from the American Weed Council, the current cycle is too slow for weed farms to grow as much weed as they’d like.
The report states that, in 2019, growers would be able to harvest between 7.3 and 9.2 million pounds of weed.
In a statement to Business Insider, a representative for the American Garden Association explained that the two-cycle schedule was designed to keep weed in check by encouraging the crop to stay on the plant’s roots, but weed farmers have complained that it’s a slow cycle.
The American Lawn Alliance said that it is “actively looking into the issues that led to the change,” and the two cycle system will be implemented starting with 2018.
The weed industry has also taken a hit from the Trump administration’s marijuana crackdown.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of the Inspector General found that the agency used marijuana in its weed eradication efforts.
The IG found that while the government was targeting growers and dispensaries for weed eradiation, the growers weren’t getting much help.
The marijuana eradication program only targeted growers that had been certified as “green,” meaning that they had a weed problem.
The OIG also found that “potentially hundreds of millions of dollars” had been diverted to marijuana growers that weren’t certified as green.
In response, the weed industry lobbied Congress to lift the moratorium on weed eradination and allow the government to use marijuana as a “controlled substance.”
In 2018, the DEA loosened the restrictions on marijuana for eradication, allowing farmers to continue using weed as a controlled substance.
The Department of Justice is currently conducting a review of the marijuana eradiation program and is expected to release a recommendation sometime in 2019.
