The Konoplex Group

Hemp growing and processing

The group of companies “Konoplex” is a Russian agricultural holding, focused on growing and processing of hemp, as well as on research and breeding new sorts of this crop. The company has leading positions in high-quality hemp acreage. The nearest plans include construction of a new industrial full cycle complex for producing high-quality hemp oil and manufacturing hemp fiber.


The agricultural activity of the enterprises of the "Konoplex" Group is based on the principles of conscientious, environmentally responsible farming, which comprise simultaneously achieved high yields and maintaining the health of the lands.


The company is guided by scientifically based methods, formed as a result of a comprehensive study of the culture’s requirements to environmental conditions, and also specifics of its growth and development to implement these goals throughout the whole cultivation cycle. Along with this, restoring the rich, but almost completely lost in the practical context, the Russian experience of hemp cultivation, the "Konoplex" Group domesticates, develops and introduces modern high-performance and technological methods of hemp cultivation. High-quality seeds with proven sort characteristics are the primary condition for obtaining maximum yields of good quality. Agricultural enterprises of the "Konoplex" Group use certified seeds of non-narcotic hemp of the Central Russian varieties for growing, that meet all the requirements of the current regulation: "Surskaya", "Nadezhda" and "Vera". These varieties of hemp seeds bred by Russian scientists of the Penza Agricultural Research Institute, have a wide range of economically useful traits, are characterized by no active substances in concentrations enough to consider crops drug-containing, are resistant to many diseases and pests, and the products obtained from them can fully satisfy the diverse needs of modern food and processing industries.

All the necessary agricultural activities are carried out to provide crops with appropriate lighting, moisture and nutrition conditions, which crucially influence harvest and its quality.

An important factor in obtaining rich and effective harvests, meanwhile maintaining careful use of lands, is adherence to methods of literate crop rotation, which makes it possible to fully use beneficial properties of hemp, including improvement of soil microflora. Modern varieties of hemp reduce necessity in chemical plants protection agents, improving soil structure and clearing it from weeds. That’s why the plant is recommended for sowing in many crop rotation schemes.


The “Konoplex” Group priority focus is processing of hemp to produce the highest quality products: raw and hulled hemp seeds, hemp oil and hemp fiber.


To create a new processing infrastructure, the "Konoplex" Group is building a multifunctional production complex in the Penza region with a total area of about 22,000 sq.m. The production of valuable food oil and the production of different types of fibers will operate on the industrial area. The equipment of the complex will have all the necessary technological capabilities for the primary processing of seeds and fiber: pre-cleaning, drying, extraction of the fibrous part, mechanical cleaning and sorting of raw materials.

The latest international achievements in hemp industry are to be used in obtaining hemp oil by cold pressing, which allows to preserve all the useful properties of this unique and rich in macro- and microelements product. The fiber manufacturing plant will use the latest Belgian, German, French and Dutch technologies to produce both long and short hemp fibers.

Currently, only three organizations in Russia carried out the selection beznarkoticheskih hemp varieties, one of which is a member of the SC "Konopleks" Company "Konopleks Penza". Konoplevodcheskoe farming is actively cooperating on the cultivation of the crop with the research institutes of agriculture - Penza and Krasnodar. The company has the exclusive right to the cultivation and processing of hemp varieties "Surskaya 'bred by Russian scientists Penza TSNIISKH. It owns a high quality seed saved from the varietal characteristics - a distinct advantage, and the pride of "Konopleks Penza".

Varietal diversity of industrial hemp has been very limited until 2000. In the State Register of Breeding Achievements Approved for use on the territory of Russia, then only two varieties of hemp Central Russian: Diana Ingreda and all three varieties yuzhnosozrevayuschey monoecious hemp: the US Open, 14, 11 Zolotonoshskaya US Open, the US Open, 31. These varieties containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content in the plants is not more than 0.1% are characterized by high parameters of economically useful characteristics.
