  Industrial Hemp Harvest

Hemp has been cultivated for longer than any other textile fiber. The fiber-bearing plant has been bred for thousands of years for its long, fine fibers, which can grow to 20 feet in length

 
Archaeologists have unearthed hemp fabric in China that is over 10,000 years old. Its history is rich and varied throughout the world. Many of the masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance were painted on hempen canvas. Britannia ruled the sea for centuries under power of hempen sails. The original drafts of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were written on hemp paper- derived from the scraps of colonial hemp cloth
The U.S. and Canada both grew hemp in the past. It was falsely labeled as marijuana and outlawed about 60 years ago due to a misinformation campaign funded by the oil, timber and other industries threatened by competition from industrial hemp. According to HEMPTECH, a global network of hemp industry consultants, more than 25,000 products can be made from hemp!

Unlike its cousin marijuana, industrial hemp is not a drug because it lacks enough THC to produce a high. " Industrial hemp and marijuana aren’t the same thing," said Jeff Gain, chairman of the board of the U.S. Agriculture Department’s Alternative Agricultural Research And Commercialization Corp

Rotation crop - Hemp stabilizes the soil due to its long tap root approx 12 inches long. This aerates even the toughest of soil, and even where there is minimum soil it can be used to increase organic matter very quickly. Therefore it has value to the farmer even if none of the crop is sold

As one of the planets oldest plants, it is often said that it will grow despite you. Unique among textile plants, hemp does not require herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, or chemical fertilizers. It can leave fields weed free, as it out competes other plants. It also pulls radioactive substances, metals and toxins from the soil, and turns them into a useful product

Hemp is nature’s performance fiber. It is the strongest natural fiber. It is naturally resistant to UV light, mold and mildew, and to salt water. It has been used for centuries for sails and rope on ocean-going ships
