Info: 17th EIHA Hemp Conference online: Agriculture, Processing, Sustainability, Construction, Automotive and Packaging

16 - 17 June 2020, online event

More and more farmers all over the world want to grow hemp and earn their living from it. Experienced growers and processors tell how to grow hemp best and what you have to pay attention to in order to be successful.
Hemp is much more than a supplier of food and pharmaceuticals. Hemp provides valuable and strong natural fibres that can be used in many different ways. Insulating materials for construction and biocomposites for packaging of all kinds and the automotive sector are typical applications of hemp fibres. And all this in the sign of a sustainable, future-oriented economy.
