Hemp Farming Systems (HFS) is a consulting group that is focused on the advancement of the industrial hemp industry in Australia and overseas. We work with farmers by introducing them to the benefits of including industrial hemp to their rotation and then guide them through the in-field protocols needed to grow a successful conventional or organic crop. This covers resource procurement and field preparation through to harvest and whatever issues need attention in between.
The Johns both have a wide knowledge of the crop. John Muir is an experienced agronomist and a hemp pioneer of 10 years standing. He is particularly helpful when optimizing sowing and harvesting protocols. John Wightman is an agricultural scientist. He continues to bring new technology into farmers' fields. The optimization of soil fertility and managing insects, weeds, and diseases are his particular fortes. He has worked with John Muir since 2011. Waltraud Wightman is an agricultural economist and farming systems specialist. She also handles the administration. Their combined experience has been accumulated by working with farmers in Australia, NZ, S and SE Asia, and Africa.
HFS recognizes that a viable industrial hemp industry can be an economic game changer in rural and regional Australia, provided the production and manufacturing industries move in lockstep. But, of course, the farmer comes first. This is why HFS seeks to promote the well designed research needed to extend industrial hemp into new production areas.
