Production and the relevance of iHemp for India
Known to be an excellent rotational crop, hemp plants usually consist of a skinny main crop covered in leaves. Plants can easily reach 6-15 feet in height without much maintenance. Hemp is superior to cotton as it can produce twice the amount of fiber per acre. The period of planting and harvesting for hemp is about 90 days on average depending upon the climatic conditions, while cotton takes 200 days for harvest.. As well, hemp only requires 10% of the water necessary for cotton production. Cotton requires pesticides, contributing to over 25% of the total global pesticide use. These pesticides can spread into the ground and pollute water sources as well as other crops such as vegetables and fruits. Hemp, however, requires no pesticides to grow fruitfully as it is naturally resistant to pests. Most importantly, hemp is a carbon negative crop, contributing to environmental protection and renewal. Hemp is anti-bacterial as well as mold resistant. It is the strongest natural fiber found in the plant kingdom. However, with all of this strength, it is still amazingly breathable and does not require chemical exposure to create garments as many pieces of cotton clothing do.
