Hello, Welcome to the Whole Plant Research Project. 


We are looking to push the U.K. to the forefront of hemp cultivation; processing, and end user commercialisation. It’s such a sustainable crop and can benefit the future of the planet, in a way no other single crop could match.


With your help we can reverse global warming; revert the micro plastics disaster, and put a stop to world wide deforestation. 


All this can be done by the integration of a single crop, hemp. 


We have the knowledge and technologies identified to make this the World's third industrial revolution, but this time it will be a green one, giving back to the planet rather than taking away from it.


We can make biodegradable plastics that are stronger than steel, clothing which is naturally antibacterial and four times harder wearing than cotton, but just as soft. 


Carbon negative construction materials, as well as paper, all from a sustainable crop which will put key nutrients back into the soil. 


It will also absorb four times the CO2 of forest growing the same amount of biomass, yet the forest takes 25 years to grow and the hemp crop only 90 days. 


Your donnations will be used for the following equipment, once purchased we will be able to offer the UK aggricutural sector the ability to maximise the returns from their hemp crop. Normal equipment will not be sufficent for the processing of hemp, due to the strong bast fibres and woody hurd.


  • Specialist Combine Harvester - For dual harevsting of the plant.
  • Specialist Decortatation Machine - For removing the bast fibre from the hurd.
  • Specialist Drying equipment.
  • Mobile Bagging Plant.

Our model will allow the UK to be a world-leader in hemp technologies and materials, we need your help to make this happen.


Once we raise the required funds to purchase the specialist equipment required to harvest and process the crop on a large scale; we can then facilitate smaller cultivation partners, allowing them access to the main stream end user markets. We will fully vertically integrate the UK’s hemp industry, leading to a world wide green industrial revolution.


So please help us reach our targets, this is the one crowdfunding drive that will actually allow you to make a difference to the planet for our generations and generations to come. Just a single £ will make a difference, if you are reading this page and agree with making the planet a better place, please make sure you donate.


Please donate and share, together we will do this.
