Harvest of hemp as a biogas substrate

Hemp is being harvested for the utilization as a substrate for biogas production.
A standard forage harvester is used to cut and chop hemp. The hemp is then collected and pressed into a silage tube for storage or used directly in the biogas process (anaerobic digestion).

The video was uploaded by Thomas Prade, PhD student at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences ( in Alnarp, Sweden.
Researchers involved in the project:
Sven-Erik Svensson, Thomas Prade

The field trials are part of a research project financed by Lunds Energi AB and Partnerskap Alnarp
