Research must now focus on those aspects that limit the expansion of hemp. Main bottlenecks are:
Lack of genotypes adapted to different cultivation environments
Seed availability
Mechanisation of harvesting
Retting or de-gumming (ridding the extracted fibres of debris)
Guaranteed supply of homogeneous high quality fibre for the industries
Identification of new commercial applications for hemp fibre and its bi-products.

Research activities of Gruppo Fibranova will focus on improving processing techniques and producing high quality textile fibres. In addition, Gruppo Fibranova will work to solve any problems that limit the continued development of a sustainable hemp production chain.
