since this year it's allowed to cultivate THC-free hemp in Germany.
But allmost nobody knows how to harvest this plants.
One of my friends is farmer and he is cultivating this plants to gain 
oil out of the seed. And now he is afraid to ruin his harvester with the 
fibrous straw. 
Some universal harvesters can cut the straw nearly at the top.

Is this practical?
What type of harvster should be used?

Any advice is wellcome! Please send as e-mail

Thanks in advance
