Abstract

A method and device for harvesting plants belonging to the family of hemp plants (Cannabaceae), in particular of the genus Hemp , with which the harvesting and separation of the individual plant parts is made possible without damaging the individual plant parts. In particular, during harvesting, the hemp stems are pulled downwards by a pair of rollers and the flowers are pulled backwards through a chain gap, whereby the flowers are stripped from the stems.

Claim(s)

1. A method for harvesting plants of the hemp genus, hemp stems being cut off above ground and flowers of the hemp plant being stripped from the stems, wherein (a) at least one pair of counter-rotating rollers ( 7 ) of a device for harvesting hemp are aligned along the direction of travel, and wherein the rollers are pressed against each other and pull the hemp stems downwards to the ground; and (b) at least a pair of circumferential chains ( 9 ) of the device for harvesting hemp located above the at least one pair of rollers ( 7 ) which holds the hemp stem below the flowers and pulls the flowers backwards in a chain gap.;
5. A device for harvesting hemp, comprising: (a) at least one front-mounted driven mower ( 4 ), (b) at least one hemp inlet ( 6 ), wherein the hemp inlet ( 6 ) moves the hemp to the center of the device, (c) at least one pair of counter-rotating rollers ( 7 ), wherein the rollers are pressed against each other and pull the hemp stems downwards, (d) at least one circumferential chain pair ( 9 ) located above the at least one pair of rollers ( 7 ) which holds the hemp stem below the flowers and pulls the flowers backwards in a chain gap, thereby stripping the flowers from the stems, and (e) at least one collecting container ( 10 ).
