Olivier Pittet of the Swiss Federal Institute for Agroscience & Technology
reported that Switzerland permits hemp cultivation with certain
restrictions. In a four year experimental program, the federal agricultural
administration is subsidizing the cultivation of renewable crops like
kenaf, cereals, and hemp. Two manufacturers, one of compression molded
parts and the other of pulp, have committed to the purchase of hemp from a
ten hectare area.
In other Swiss projects, hemp has been used for the production of building
materials, and of oil.
