She grows tall and proud, with a vast canopy loaded with glistening flowers. Indoor plants peak at 140cm and are suited to large grow tents with strong lighting. With her basic needs met, she’ll easily produce 600g/m² after a flowering time of 9–11 weeks. Grown outdoors, she’ll surge to a height of 190cm and pump out up to 750g per plant by the end of October.
Without further ado, here are our top cannabis strain selections for 2020, for those wanting high-yielding plants that maximise productivity and output.
Genetics underpin the true potential of every strain. After selecting a cultivar that promises to produce large yields, growers need to ensure they provide powerful lighting, nutrient-rich soil, and adequate amounts of water. Training techniques can also significantly improve output.
Indoor plants peak at 140cm, although training techniques, such as LST can keep them closer to the ground, at around 80cm. Under good quality lights and with a solid feeding regimen, plants will produce up to 650g/m² after a flowering time of 10–11 weeks. Outdoor plants can tower at the height of 210cm and produce a huge yield of 700g per plant, ready to crop during late October.
This mighty sativa will plunge you into the mindset of a shogun—crystal clear cognition, rational and philosophical thinking, and unrivalled motivation. Shogun ticks all of the boxes of a truly great cannabis variety. She boasts high THC levels, incredible taste, and a yield that will keep you very busy come harvest time.
The same strain can produce dramatically different results depending on pot size, nutrient availability and the growing environment. The estimated yield of each cannabis strain derives from an average calculated from different growers.
Below, you’ll discover four of the highest yielding strains of 2020. All of these cultivars boast an abundance of bud sites and respond exceptionally well to training techniques. Before we take a look, let’s cover some common questions about improving cannabis yields.
When planning to grow your own weed, then of course you want cannabis seeds with a high yield per plant. We are talking about 500 grams per m2 or more when growing indoors.
Choosing high yielding cannabis seeds is not always easy because there is a huge supply of cannabis seeds. Nowadays, there are over 5,000 different cannabis strains. All of these strains have unique characteristics that also play a role in making your choice. Just think of taste, smell and the effect.
What you can do yourself to increase your yield
Lovers of weed with a high THC content, choose Jack Widow. Jack Widow is known for its fantastic taste, smell and effect. But also for the enormous harvest you get with it. When grown indoors, the plant yields up to 650 grams per m2 (in a SOG set-up), but especially outdoors, this plant comes into its own, because then the yield can be as high as 1,000 grams per m2. Tip for outdoor growers: take into account a reduced fungal resistance. A little growing experience is useful.
As already mentioned, the choice of the cannabis seeds determines the final yield. It is a fact that feminized plants produce a higher yield than autoflowering seeds. Autoflower seeds are seeds that have been crossed with the Ruderalis plant variety. Ruderalis is known for being able to grow and flower anywhere. Therefore autoflower seeds can grow ‘automatically’ and are suitable for novice growers. The disadvantage of autoflowers is that they have a lower yield.
Does the name sound familiar? That’s not surprising, because it’s a very popular weed plant and the weed can be found in almost every coffeeshop. As a predominantly Sativa strain with extremely high yields, Super Silver Haze deserves this second place. Indoors, this variety produces a yield of 600 grams per m2 without any problems and even 800 grams per m2 under ideal conditions.
