Industrial hemp

The Agri-Development Department is endeavouring, with a number of institutional (Chanvre wallon asbl, CRA-w, Materia Nova, etc.) and private partners (ChanvrEco, etc.) but also with the invaluable help of farmers, to develop an industrial hemp sector in Wallonia. In particular, effort is being put into the fibre, from changing the way crops are managed, to marketing, including manufacturing.
