What's great about growing Hemp:
An extremely fast growing crop, hemp produces more fibre yield per acre than any other source. Added to this environmental benefit, hemp leaves the soil in excellent condition for any succeeding crop. Roots anchor and protect the soil from runoff, building and preserving topsoil and subsoil structures similar to those of forests. Plants shed their leaves all through the growing season, adding rich organic matter to the topsoil and helping it retain moisture. Farmers have reported excellent hemp growth on land that had been cultivated steadily for nearly 100 years.
