Storage and Processing
Once you’ve harvested the hemp, cleanse all foreign material from the grain and prepare it for storage until the time you’re ready to process it. Make sure it is properly aerated immediately to avoid spoiling. Dry hemp grain to approximately 9% moisture. Best for drying hemp is a belt conveyor, though you can use an auger as well, as long as you run it slow and full. This will help keep the seeds from cracking.
If you are producing fiber hemp you can dry it in the barn also if you are in an area where your winter is wetter need to get the humidity below 20 percent and have constant airflow on the material to dry it correctly
