Abstract

The important potential of cultivating hemp for fiber and cannabidiol extraction for medicinal use, makes this plant return to the attention of agronomists and medical researchers. Another strength of this plant is the potential of produced fibers to contribute to the decrease in the use of plastic in the near future, helping to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. In addition, hemp could be a more economically attractive alternative for ethanol generation or even for the production of high-strength construction materials. The paper aims to present several technologies used for hemp harvesting.
