The Role of Industrial Hemp in Carbon Farming

Name: James Vosper BSCHons, FRGS
Company: GoodEarth Resources PTY Ltd (ABN 79 124 022 859)

We submit that industrial hemp be seriously considered as a crop that can contribute significantly to the Australian Government’s aim to reduce global atmospheric Carbon Dioxide. Industrial hemp has been scientifically proven to absorb more CO2 per hectare than any forest or commercial crop and is therefore the ideal carbon sink. In addition, the CO2 is permanently bonded within the fiber that is used for anything from textiles, to paper and as a building material. It is currently being used by BMW in Germany to replace plastics in car construction. It is therefore additional to what would otherwise be grown or sourced from oil. It can be constantly replanted and as such meets permanence criteria as defined by the Kyoto Protocol.

Business Case for Carbon Soil Sequestration & Industrial Hemp Production

Industrial Hemp Association of Queensland Inc (www.ihaq.com.au)

Because of its unique properties for carbon bio-sequestration, as an export food crop in times of uncertainty to world food security, and as a contributor to eco-friendly building materials science and bio energy, it is clear that fast growing industrial hemp is a major asset in the fight against climate change

Rotation with dicotyledonous crops to break cereal monoculture has proven to be beneficial to successive cereals. In two fields where the soil had been subjected to prolonged, continu- ous cereal production, two 3-year rotation trials were established. In the first year, faba bean, turnip rape and barley were grown, as first crops, in large blocks and their residues tilled into the soil after harvest. In the following year, barley, buckwheat, caraway, faba Citation: Zou L, Yli-Halla M, Stoddard FL, Mäkelä bean, hemp and white lupin were sown, as second crops, in each block and incorporated ei- PSA (2015) Effects of Break Crops on Yield and ther at flowering stage (except barley) or after harvest

Energy crops in rotation. A review

Walter Zegada-Lizarazu, Andrea Monti*
Department of Agroenvironmental Science and Technology, University of Bologna, Viale G. Fanin, 44 e 40127, Bologna, Italy

The area under energy crops has increased tenfold over the last 10 years, and there is large consensus that the demand for energy crops will further increase rapidly to cover several millions of hectares in the near future. Information about rotational systems and effects of energy crops should be therefore given top priority. Literature is poor and fragmentary on this topic, especially about rotations in which all crops are exclusively dedicated to energy end uses
