German term or phrase: Terms related to hemp
Can anyone offer a translation of the words in CAPITALS below?:
"Der naturgemäße strukturelle Aufbau von Hanfstengeln zeigt, daß die HOLZZELLEN den größten mengenmäßigen Anteil der Gesamtpflanze einnehmen. Bei der RÖSTE des Hanfes werden die Holzzellen spröde und fallen in der Weiterverarbeitung gemeinsam mit noch ANHANFTENDEN MARKZELLEN als "Schäben" (hurds) an."
Thanks muchly! :-)

lignified cells/ parching/ attached pith cells
Explanation:
Lignified cells contain lignin which is the glue that makes them hard and woody. Alternatively, Holzzellen can be translated as sklerenchyma cells, but that is more particular as it refers to the tissue in which these cells are found, i.e. the sklerenchyma.
