Growing Hemp for the Future

By Textile Exchange

New report highlights unique opportunity to build beneficial production systems for fiber hemp. 

Textile Exchange releases Growing Hemp for the Future: A Global Fiber Guide.

The report looks at the production of fiber hemp around the world, identifying its benefits and concerns, providing recommendations to guide fiber hemp programs toward a resilient future. 

Since its recent legalization in countries around the world, the global textile industry is increasingly turning to hemp, celebrating the plant’s ability to enhance soil health, support biodiversity, suppress weeds, and increase yields among subsequent crops – all while relying on little or no inputs.  

Fiber hemp holds strong sustainability potential, but as it gains popularity, it is vital that we look at how it is grown. This means taking onboard lessons learned from other fiber crops, where heavy synthetic pesticide and fertilizer use have become the norm.

At this early stage, the industry has unique opportunity to shape fiber hemp standards from the soil up, setting up systems that maximize measurable benefits for the climate, ecosystems, and communities.

Establishing Hemp’s Foundation

Hemp made inroads in the building industry during an exhibition of modern
housing designs and technologies in the nation’s capital.

By Michael Sirak

Hemp-based building materials were among the select group of housing innovations on display for policymakers and the public in mid-June 2023 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

This year marked the first time that hemp had a presence at the Innovative Housing Showcase, an outdoor event which the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) sponsor on the national stage. 2023 was the showcase’s third installment; another is planned in 2024.

To me, having hemp products at this event was another indication that the budding domestic hemp industry—active in earnest since the end of 2018 when growing the plant became legal again in the United States after some 80 years of prohibition—is slowly but surely expanding its reach in American culture and the economy.
