Red Hemp

Crotalaria ochroleuca
HOW TO GROW RED HEMP

Direct sow after danger of last frost, dies in fall at 28˚F. Drought tolerant but there must be moisture for germination. It is day-length sensitive. August 15 is last date in Alabama for plants to grow 6 feet tall. Sowings after will bolt and not grow as tall or produce less N2. It needs zero Nitrogen but grows better with ample Phosphorus and Potash in the soil. Cut to 12–18” and allow to regrow or Incorporate after 60 days when about 6’ tall. If allowed to get too tall and old the stems will become tough and fibrous and not decompose rapidly and cause problems the following year preparing soil and planting. Will go to seed in Puerto Rico and Hawaii. Inoculated to improve nitrogen fixation. Soil pH 5–8.5. Hardiness zones 9–14. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 4,360 seeds per ounce. Average 5 lb seeds per acre. There is no Federal germination standard for Red Hemp. Usual seed life: 4–6 years.

Sunn Hemp bears yellow flowers and elongate, alternate leaves. Benefits of this crop are very similar to Sunn Hemp as a green manure and forage crop, is also eaten in some countries. Crotalaria ochroleuca is slightly smaller plant and has a less ridged stalk than Sunn Hemp. It is a little slower in getting established. Grows to 4–6’ (1.5–2 m) and produces 100 lb. of Nitrogen per acre. It is a little better at nematode suppression than Sunn Hemp. The seed are identical in shape as Sunn Hemp seed but are much smaller with a seed count of 60,000 seed per pound. This reduces the overall costs of planting. Not industrial hemp. Sun Hemp is from the Crotalaria Genus and will not cross with the Cannabis Genus. Also known as Marejea and Mini Hemp.
