N.I.Vavilov Research Institute of Plant Industry
     From the article "Collection of Hemp Genetic Resources at VIR" - The germplasm collection preserved at the Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry (VIR) is a source of rich genetic diversity in hemp. Founded in 1922, the Institute's hemp collection was arranged under the leadership of N.I. Vavilov. The first hemp germplasm collected and preserved were diverse landraces and local strains from all over the territory of the former Soviet Union, beginning from the northernmost regions of the European part of Russia to the southern and easternmost areas of the country.

Cliff Schaffer's Hemp Page
     A very good historical reference. I hesitate to mention this sometimes as so many people have real problems with marijuana and cannot distinguish it from Industrial Hemp. I think that the two subjects should be debated in separate forums, this may be a naive view, however.

New Processing Strategies For Hemp
     A very interesting article by Kai M. Nebel. "The traditional processing of hemp fibre is technology that is at least 50 years old. Its problems and the requirements for new methods are explained. Steam explosion principles are described and an initial demonstration has revealed its utility for transforming raw hemp fibre into a material whose texture and properties are comparable with or superior to cotton and "cottonized" hemp. Economic and environmental factors are analyzed and found favorable for broad industrial application of this new technology."
