Australian Industrial Hemp (Cannabis sativa) agronomic scoping studies
The Australian industrial hemp industry, which currently is focused predominantly on the use of fibre and seed, is an industry identified as having a high growth potential in the AgriFutures Australia Emerging Industries program. The Australian industrial hemp industry vision is to achieve a gross value of Australian industrial hemp production that exceeds $10 million per annum by 2026. While achievable, hemp production in Australia must overcome some agronomical challenges before the industry can achieve the growth to reach this target. This project aims to develop three scoping documents focusing on the three agronomic aspects of plant development and production: plant nutrition, optimal sowing rates, and optimal soil moisture for different end products and growing environments. The scoping project will result from extensive desktop research and stakeholder consultation across the Australian hemp industry and will include specific recommendations for future research to support the development of the Australian hemp industry growth.
