We build hemp solutions

Ultimately, there are many factors that influence how to best harvest your hemp:

  1. What type of hemp are you harvesting?
  2. What is the size (height & width) of your crop?
  3. How was it planted?
  4. What part of the hemp plant do you sell? Only the flower, leaves or the stems? Or a combination of the three?
  5. What is your drying process?
  6. Do you “dewater”?
  7. How many acres are you harvesting?
  8. Do you need a short term or long term solution?

With these answers - and our experience - Global Equipment can give you the best advice on the most efficient hemp harvesting process.
