Hemp productivity depending on seeding rates

Alexandrova L.N., Efeykin D.P.


Influence of seeding rate and decapitation on yield of seed and fiber of three monoecious hemp varieties was studied. The greatest yield of fiber has been received at seeding of 1,6-2,5 million, of seed – at 0,5-1,3 million germinating seeds per hectare. The decapitation of plants at a phase of three leaf pairs considerably increases an outcome of hemp.
