Elementary Production Economics of Marijuana A.G. with help from C.J. and A.K April 14, 2005
Production of a crop - inputs Now here's your chance to grab a piece of the good ol' American Dream. An ideal cash cropper with white crystals frosting not only the buds, but also the stem and beginning of the leaves. This super Indica flowers in seven weeks and will keep you dreaming for hours. Flowering Time: Indoor 45 - 50 days/Outdoor Mid October Approx Yield: 100 grams per plant/Outdoor 500 grams per plant Height: 100 - 125 cm USD$175 / CAD$220 An excellent hybrid between Skunk #1 and Early Pearl. Outdoor growers are usually dissatisfied with the finishing date of the regular Skunk strain. The Early Skunk finishes about 2 weeks earlier than Skunk #1 due to the influence of the Early Pearl. The influence of the latter is also noticeable in the smell and the high: sweet and smooth. The strain combines a good yield with mold resistance. Flowering Time: Outdoor Early October Approx Yield: Outdoor 500 grams per plant Height: 200 - 300 cm USD$95 / CAD$120 http://kindseed.com/products
Question • Early Skunk yields as much as American Dream. Why, would you guess that it sells for half as much? • Why would anyone grow Early Skunk?
Production Functions • “Marijuana plants should be planted at least three feet apart.” • “Getting too greedy and stacking them too close will result in stunted plants.” • Suppose we have a “line” that is 30 feet long. This would suggest we could “optimally” plant 11 plants. Why?
