Sustainable Hemp grows without the need of harmful herbicides and pesticides; hemp is planted in dense crops not allowing sun light to penetrate, which reduces weed growth by 95%, eliminating the need for herbicides. No pesticides are used due to the inherent properties contained in the plant itself. Hemp is commonly used as a companion crop bordering family gardens as a deterrent to insects and infestations.
Additionally, hemp is an ideal rotation crop due to its long taproot structure that helps retain topsoil, while also replenishing soil quality due to the natural leaf composting that regenerates vital elements in the soil. Hemp does not require irrigation unlike other natural fibers (like thirsty cotton). The unique inherent characteristics of the fiber of hemp have the additional ability to suppress the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi, making it the ideal “fiber for our future.”
