Australia’s first hemp crop ready to harvest
Australia’s first hemp crop is ready to harvest after the plant was legalised as a food in Australia in November 2017.
Geelong based company, Australian Primary Hemp, has worked with over ten farmers across Australia to grow the crop, producing upwards of 700 hectares of hemp.
One of the farmers, Simon Allen, said the hemp was a good crop to grow.
“Its short cropping cycle has made it easy to integrate into my current cropping program,” Allen said.
Australian Primary Hemp Director, James Hood, said a large number of farmers have become interested in growing hemp over the past six months.
“The ideal climate and soil conditions found in Australia make it a great new crop to grow,” he said.
