This video gives viewers both a birds-eye and close-up view of the nearly 60,000 hemp plants harvested from nearly 40 acres of land in Hersey, ME.
The pilot research program is 100 percent fee-funded. Application fees are $200. Licenses for growing, distributing and processing range from $1,000 to $6,000 annually. There are other fees associated with hemp production as well, such as a $45-per-hour sampling fee, a $250 One of the biggest concerns for growers is the potential of their crop to turn “hot,” or for the THC levels to be above the allowable levels when tested, resulting in the crop has to be destroyed. Griffin said in North Carolina, they report about 10 percent of crops go hot.
During the last two years, Frey said brokers have approached his company to enter into about 50 or 60 deals but only two have come through.
Buyers, he said, often promise great prices only to inexplicably back out of a deal, making it difficult for Western States Hemp to sell its product.
It’s an issue unique to selling hemp, said Frey, who also grows alfalfa, corn, and triticale.
Even before the Farm Bill, interest in hemp had skyrocketed in recent years. Between 2016 and 2018, the numbers of growers registered with the
Nevada Department of Agriculture rose from 13 to 116. In 2017, Nevada hemp was grown over 17,170 square-feet in indoor facilities. By the end
of 2018, that number had grown by 1,272 percent. The same is true for the amount of hemp irrigated outside. In 2017, hemp was grown on just
490 acres. In 2018, the number was 1,880 acres.
