Crop Rotation

Hemp intercrops with many grains, grasses, vegetables and fruits such as turnips, hops, nettles, Brussel sprouts, broccoli, mustard and corn. It performs incredibly well after as a post crop.  Growing grains immediately after hemp allow them grow with minimal, if any, interruptions. Introducing hemp into your farm crop rotation is a wonderful cash and cover crop dual purpose opportunity. It can help reduce the incidence of diseases and soil pathogens since hemp is resistant to their attach. It also suppresses the growth of weed continuously and improves soil structure. If you are growing beans or oats, you can interchange them with hemp into your crop rotation and enjoy the many benefits of hemp in your farm.

HEMP FARM BENEFITS

There are many great reasons to consider hemp as a cash and cover crop that you can add to your farm crop rotation.

Here are four strong benefits of hemp farming:

RELY LESS ON PESTICIDES & HERBICIDES

Many Hemp global varieties of hemp are naturally resistant to insect pests and predators. As a result, chemical pesticides that leach into soil and waterways do not need to be used, creating a safe haven for pollinators such as bees.

STRONG ROOT-BALL & LONG TAPROOT

Hemp has a very long taproot system that grows up to 6 feet deep into the ground and enables the hemp plant to search for water tables farther than where most plants cannot reach.  This reduces the competition for water and nutrients, making hemp a drought-resistant plant. The long taproot system also digs into the soil for nutrients, thus bringing them close to the surface so crops grown after hemp can easily utilize them without stress.

ADDS NUTRIENTS TO SOIL

With an impeccable root system, nutrient need, and leaf shape, hemp adds nutrients like potassium and nitrates back into the soil.  These nutrients increase the nutrient level and the yield on the field. Crop cultivation such as wheat increases in yield after hemp significantly.

IMPROVE AERATION & BIOMASS

The hemp plants dig deep into the soil, losing the compacted soil structure to improve aeration and biomass. As a result, hemp produces high root biomass after harvest. It accumulates in the soil areas where mineralization is limited and actually stores the caron, contributing to a sustainable cropping system that is great for continuous rotations.

SELECTING HEMP CULTIVARS

Whether you are looking to strictly grow hemp solo or to add hemp to your crop rotations, the vast differences in varieties of hemp will make a big difference in the results you’re trying to achieve.  HempGlobal takes pride in partnering with the best geneticists focusing on high quality cultivar production, specific to the type of farming goals you are dedicated in having. Depending on your budget, business plan, and what you are trying to achieve, there are many factors to consider.

Qualify for Carbon Cash

Did you know that many crops such as corn that are currently grown positively emit carbon into the atmosphere as well as degrade the quality of soil and nutrients on your farm? By adding hemp plants into your crop rotation, you can offset the carbon that is emitted into the atmosphere.  Also, you can earn carbon credits and turn them into cash, just by growing hemp.  Hemp removes carbon and stores it; this is known as carbon sequestering.  To learn how to qualify for this and add an additional revenue source, benefit your farm soil, increase your biomass of your other crops, please contact us.
