Summary

Summary

This is the book that will prepare the prospective hemp farmer for his crop. It is a translation of the German book that is in common use throughout Europe, where the acreage devoted to hemp is increasing annually. Introductory chapters summarize the historical significance of hemp and profile the current state of cultivation.

The heart of the book, however, is its detailed classification of the varieties of hemp. The authors provide botanical descriptions and discuss the reproductive biology of the plant. Practical, how-to information on cultivating each variety of hemp is given, including necessary nutrients, soil preparation, and harvesting techniques.
