I am interested in growing hemp in Southern Africa, namely in Botswana and was wondering if I can find a market for unprocessed hemp and how to go about it. There is currently no hemp processing plant in Botswana therefore to make any profit on the crop I will need to export. Is that feasible, considering transport costs?
How does one go about setting up a small processing plant and what machinery is essential for that?
Lastly, what is the minimum size of land needed to grow hemp on a commercial scale in a place like Botswana? Thanks, Sean
