Struggling American family farms are praising a cash crop worth more than US$45,000 per acre. According to projections by market research firm Brightfield Group, the hemp-derived CBD boom isn’t cropping up nearly as much attention in Canada.
Agriculture Commissioner Kent Leonhardt’s office says about 130 farmers grew 641 acres of industrial hemp in 2019, up from 155 acres in 2018. And more’s coming: The department’s statement says more than 400 applications have been submitted for the 2020 growing season, double last year’s numbers.

As of 2016, there were 3,007 counties, 64 parishes, 19 organized boroughs, 10 census areas, 41 independent cities, and the District of Columbia for a total of 3,142 counties and county-equivalents in the 50 states and District of Columbia.
Some of those conflicts were on display Wednesday night in Corvallis, where Benton County planners held a workshop on proposed code changes aimed at allowing those newly legalized industries to operate while limiting their impacts on surrounding residents.
10 farms were awarded licenses to grow hemp products as part of a UN-L research program over the summer. The licenses were set to expire at the end of the year, but one of the farms was given an extension into 2020. The research being done at Midwest Hop Producers seeks to discover the best way to grow hemp in Nebraska. To assist with this part of the research, Annette Wiles has purchased a Purpl-Pro testing device. It allows them to test both levels right here in Nebraska. The tool will help them keep their plants within the legal limits of THC and help monitor the levels as the plants grow.
