Hemp seeds have multiple uses. They are a near-perfect source of protein. They are rich in oil which can be used for both nutritional and industrial purposes, depending on the refinement of processing. The matter left over from pressing the oil out of the seeds can be compacted into animal feed ‘cakes’.
HempFlax has developed unique harvesting machinery that combines the action of the HempFlax cutting system with a combine harvester. This enables the stems, leaves and seeds of the hemp plants to be harvested in a single process. What sets this apart from other systems is that the highest seed quality is preserved throughout the harvesting, since only the top part of the plants flows through the harvester.
