The United Nation Standard for cultivation of broadacre farm safe hemp is with THC below 1%. In reality, hemp will tend to get “hot” in the tropics meaning that the THC levels will rise. Broadacre pulp and fibre crop cultivation should target very low THC and CBC genetics to avoid any complications with medical cannabis cultivation with narcotic regulatory values. Hemp and Cannabis are from the same plant family with the main difference being the THC, CBD and other isolates levels.
Industrial Hemp can now be grown under license in Thailand in broadacre format by licensed farms. We are developing a contracted cultivation partnership program for suitable farms. If you are interested in growing hemp for fibre, pulp or biomass, please contact us here or through the Wealthy Farmer Program at www.WealthyFarmers.net
Industrial hemp has some startling commercial advantages under broadacre conditions in Thailand. Thailand has year round growing conditions on the basis the land is properly prepared to manage the monsoon water volumes. Broadacre Hemp pricing suggest that cultivation costs are 60% off those of the west for pulp, fibre and biomass. TCC is currently sourcing large international and domestic secure contracts for paper, bioplastics, fibre and other products to generate the cultivation capacity demand for the hemp farmers while also generating the commercially viable supply and standards for processing factories.

Hemp is an astonishing crop when it comes to pulp. Thailand Pulp is sourced domestically and internationally. It is usually sourced from trees such as Eucalyptus (Blue Gum or similar). What is astonishing is how much better Hemp is at producing pulp than Eucalyptus. One hectare (or rai) of Hemp can produce as much pulp in one year as four hectares (or rai) of Eucalyptus can produce in 7 years. Hemp is 56 times more productively efficient and effective than Eucalyptus.
Thailand currently has an 18% shortfall of pulp supply with 7 of 10 paper mills closed or temporarily closed at this time. TCC is currently working to secure large paper food packaging from hemp pulp cultivation to reverse the decline in the paper industry, to provide contracted cultivation agreements to farmers and to replace polystyrene food packaging as single use plastics to comply with Thai environmental agendas. For more information, please contact TCC.
Hemp is a tremendous source of fibre for clothing, bio-plastics, construction products and even batteries.
Hemp for fibre is cultivated in much the same way as for the pulp and biomass resources. The crop is grown in close formation through to 120 days where it is cut and laid out to sun dry and “ret” or break down separating the fibers from the cellulose and starch.
Asia is likely to become the main production center for hemp derived produce because of the very suitable growing conditions.
