Hemp is an extremely fast growing crop with little to no use for pesticides, fertilisers or herbicides. It can produce 250% more fibre than cotton using the same amount of land. Cotton is a very water and pesticide intensive plant to grow. It has a much higher environmental cost than hemp which requires much less water, grows very quickly, and uses minimal nutrients from the soil. The roots of the hemp plant also aerate the soil, leaving it rich for future crops. Amazingly it also returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil.
