Early flowering varieties suitable for grain production

Early and very early hemp varieties are designed for grain production. These types of hemp is characterized by a short cycle and a reduced growth habit, and it often has a good capacity to branch.

The reduced height makes mechanical harvesting easy with traditional machinery.

Oil and protein content of the seeds represents an added value for these types of plants. In many countries the tolerance limits for THC in foods is very low.

In Italy, this limit is set in the order of parts per million (ppm).

Hemp seeds do not physiologically accumulate THC in the embryo, however, during harvest, seeds are often contaminated by resins and consequently the derived products may show traces of cannabinoids.

The early and very early varieties generally allow growers to avoid exceeding the tolerance threshold of THC in food.
