EIn Estonia, it is possible to grow seed hemp varieties for profit. We recommend the Finola variety, which is suitable for the northern climate and the available harvesting technology.
Finola is a short early flowering hemp variety, which does not branch out much. In addition to the seed, Finola produces satisfactory fibre, which resembles flax fibre rather than hemp fibre. However, due to short plants, the biomass production is considerably smaller than for other industrial hemp varieties.
Experiments on cultivation showed that this variety, which was cultivated in Finland, produced a yield of 1.7 tonnes/ha, which is more than for all varieties cultivated so far. Finola is grown in Canada, many European countries, Australia and New Zealand. In Estonia, the normal yield is between 0.8 and 1.2 tonnes/ha. A detailed description of the variety can be found here.
As for fibre hemp, we recommend varieties on which field experiments have been carried out in Estonia. Detailed information on field experiments is available here.
