Hemp sector to shape regulation to improve global production.

New technologies Textile
The US-based Textile Exchange urges the hemp sector to shape regulations to improve global production, avoid the adoption of hazardous pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, and attain certified organic and regenerative standards.

Hemp is a versatile and eco-friendly plant that belongs to the Cannabis sativa species. It has been cultivated for various purposes for thousands of years. Hemp is often confused with marijuana, another variety of Cannabis sativa, but they are distinct in terms of their chemical composition and uses.

Hemp has numerous industrial applications. Its fibers can be used to make textiles, clothing, rope, and various types of paper. Hemp seeds can be pressed to produce hemp oil, which is used in cooking and for its nutritional benefits.

Hemp is known for its sustainability and positive environmental impact. It requires minimal water and pesticides to grow, making it an eco-friendly crop. Moreover, hemp plants absorb a significant amount of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, making them beneficial for combating climate change.

The Textile Exchange desires that regulation monitoring should provide a chain of custody from field to finished product. In its new report the association pointed out that at this early stage, the industry has an opportunity to shape fiber hemp standards from the soil up, setting up systems that maximize measurable benefits for the climate, ecosystems, and communities.

The report further emphasized that the global textile industry is increasingly turning to this once-stigmatized crop, celebrating its ability to enhance soil health, support biodiversity, suppress weeds, and increase yields among subsequent crops – all while relying on little or no inputs.

However, it stated that significant improvements must be made to make public data that supports sustainability statements and identifies fiber hemp production regions and quantities.

Though complete data is unavailable still the leading producers by volume appear to be France, China, North Korea (estimated), Poland, and the US.
