It gives little back to the soil if anything at all. Likely, it will only add its own remnant organic matter after the fact. Hemp is known as a Bioaccumulator. This means that it also is likely to absorb toxins and heavy metals that are present in the soil. This speaks to the importance of growing (and purchasing) hemp products that were derived from organic farming practices. Soils need to be fertilized after growing hemp, and/or install plants that replenish soil nutrients like red-clover. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 205 Answers 0 Best Answers 432 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-05-06T14:11:02-04:00Added an answer on May 6, 2020 at 2:11 pm Just like any other crop, it depletes nutrients from the soil. That is why crops are planted in rotation in many areas since certain plants can replenish the soil of key nutrients it needs. Hemp on the other hand, does have much longer roots that will prevent erosion, unlike some industrialized crops. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
