Producers and Farmers

Cultivation and pressing hemp juice adds value to the farmer

  • Fibers and shives ready for dry storage shortly after harvesting
  • Dry shives and fibers ready for industrial processing
  • Evaporation liquid for leather treatment
  • Juice from the stems for biogas or lactic acid for chemical industry
  • Juice from the leaves and leafy tops for human consumption
  • Solid remains from pressed leaves good as animal feed
  • Juice from taproots as fertilizer
  • Solid remains from roots for biogas production
  • Partial harvesting optimizes common use of machinery
  • Flexible harvesting time depending on market price

Partial harvesting

Partial harvesting is a suggested new process of harvesting where

  • only the leafy tops of the hemp plant are cut off and processed for the production of juice and animal feed
  • the stalks will continue to grow until the desired fiber quality is reached
  • the plant will develop new leafy tops, given time
  • a continuous stream of fresh juice can be generated
  • favorable market prices can determine the time of juice production
  • a shared use of machinery is spaced out over time
