Industrial hemp is here to stay in the United States. Its popularity is only increasing domestically and around the world as products derived from the hemp plant continue to be developed. Industrial hemp is a dual use crop. That means you can profit on the harvest of the grain alone, then harvest for the fiber and biomass of the plant later. That's icing on the cake and extra money in your pocket. If you are a farmer interested in getting into industrial hemp before the competition, apply today.

Before you apply:
It is important to note the distinction between the three varieties of hemp before sowing any soil. This application is for farmers interested in growing hemp for grain and fiber only, not CBD. There is a lot of miscommunication within the hemp industry, many people assume CBD is found in hemp oil which is derived from the grain. However, CBD is NOT found in significant amounts in the grain, CBD comes from the flower material before the buds develop any seed (grain), but only from varieties of hemp that produce high concentrations of CBD. Hemp oil comes from the grain, so it does NOT contain marketable CBD concentrations unless the CBD was added to the oil. This application is for farmers that wish to grow food-grade grain and fiber varieties of hemp.
