China to Expand Hemp Fiber Acreage in Yunnan

Industrial hemp is produced in many countries around the world.
Xishuangbanna of Yunnan province in China is set to expand its hemp growing area from 30 000mu to 100 000mu by the end of this year. Industrial hemp is environmentally friendly as it requires little to no pesticides or herbicides. Producing 250 percent more fibre than cotton, hemp farming can also control topsoil erosion.
