"When we take care of our soil, we take care of ourselves. Return organic material to the soil, and we not only keep it from being wasted in a landfill, we sequester carbon, support our diverse farms and ranches, help retain water, reduce erosion and improve air quality. The Healthy Soils Initiative nurtures one of California's most valuable natural assets."
Grower, processor and research experiences on the prairies in Alberta Canada, where 25,600 acres of hemp has been cultivated in 2014, have provided an understanding of best management practices for harvesting and storage of industrial hemp. The experiences help guide harvest and storage practices to ensure the strict quality requirements for food and fibre production.
