This test method is used to determine the grading and analysis of hemp hurd. The results are used to determine compliance of the size distribution of hemp hurd, loose fiber %, fiber clump %, dust %, and trash content of hemp with applicable specifications requirements, and to provide necessary data for the control of the production of hemp hurd. The users of this document include producers of hemp hurd, regulatory bodies, and evaluators of specifications for hemp hurd. This testing standard allows for the development of specifications for hemp hurd in the market, using these methods to create comparable results.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
