The Konoplex Group

Hemp (also known as Cannabis Sativa) is a traditional agricultural crop, cultivated in Russia for textile fiber and hemp oil production. The modern legally allowed for growing sorts of hemp are characterized by no active substances in concentrations enough to adjudge crops drug-containing. They also have improved biological characteristics that allow using seeds, stems and green part of the plant in different spheres of national economy. Hemp goods are is in demand in food, textile, construction, agriculture and other industries.

The group of companies “Konoplex” is a Russian agricultural holding, focused on growing and processing of hemp, as well as on research and breeding new sorts of this crop. The company has leading positions in high-quality hemp acreage. The nearest plans include construction of a new industrial full cycle complex for producing high-quality hemp oil and manufacturing hemp fiber.

The agricultural activity of the enterprises of the “Konoplex” Group is based on the principles of conscientious, environmentally responsible farming, which comprise simultaneously achieved high yields and maintaining the health of the lands.

The company is guided by scientifically based methods, formed as a result of a comprehensive study of the culture’s requirements to environmental conditions, and also specifics of its growth and development to implement these goals throughout the whole cultivation cycle. Along with this, restoring the rich, but almost completely lost in the practical context, the Russian experience of hemp cultivation, the “Konoplex” Group domesticates, develops and introduces modern high-performance and technological methods of hemp cultivation. High-quality seeds with proven sort characteristics are the primary condition for obtaining maximum yields of good quality. Agricultural enterprises of the “Konoplex” Group use certified seeds of non-narcotic hemp of the Central Russian varieties for growing, that meet all the requirements of the current regulation: “Surskaya”, “Nadezhda” and “Vera”. These varieties of hemp seeds bred by Russian scientists of the Penza Agricultural Research Institute, have a wide range of economically useful traits, are characterized by no active substances in concentrations enough to consider crops drug-containing, are resistant to many diseases and pests, and the products obtained from them can fully satisfy the diverse needs of modern food and processing industries.

All the necessary agricultural activities are carried out to provide crops with appropriate lighting, moisture and nutrition conditions, which crucially influence harvest and its quality.

An important factor in obtaining rich and effective harvests, meanwhile maintaining careful use of lands, is adherence to methods of literate crop rotation, which makes it possible to fully use beneficial properties of hemp, including improvement of soil microflora. Modern varieties of hemp reduce necessity in chemical plants protection agents, improving soil structure and clearing it from weeds. That’s why the plant is recommended for sowing in many crop rotation schemes.

Whereas cultivation of hemp is ruled by generally common agro techniques and methods, hemp harvesting and processing are specific processes, which require special technical means. The harvest technologies used in Konoplex agrarian divisions are aimed at preserving valuable and useful properties of all parts of the plant – seeds, stems and grassy parts. Almost complete absence of special agricultural harvesting machinery made the company to refine some parts of usual crop harvesting machines and perform hemp harvesting with modified and reworked serial combines.
