  1. Hellow there, i am a farmer and i just had my first 50 ha crop of hemp. I was pleased with my results ( 600kg/ha produced C1 seed) so next year im looking to expand to 300 ha of hemp. I need any advice with what should i do with the seeds that i got ( i heard extracting the oil is the most profitable) and any technological advice for the crop.

  2. My name is Randy and I am the YA/Adult programmer for the Floyd County Public Library in Prestonsburg, Kentucky. I am looking for a program/presenter to come to the Library to speak of potential industry that we can start in Eastern Kentucky.

    I recently heard that the state legislature has passed a limited law to allow a testing of hemp growth in the state. I know from history our state once lead the nation in hemp production and aided winning the world war.

    Now the hemp industry has many different and amazing products. I see this as big potential for farmers and possible farmers our area.

    My question is could you put together a class on the “what ifs” of the production of hemp as a source of employment, income, and industry in our area?

    Secondly, if you could put together a presentation, could you do it twice, once at our Prestonsburg location and once at our Minnie location.

    We are looking for new industry, new ways to put our young to work and keep them in Appalachia.

    Thanks you for anything you can do,

      Randy. What’s happened in the past two years with hemp career education in Kentucky? I believe you live in present day ground zero for hemp field opportunities. What are YOU trying to accomplish and are you satisfied with where you’re at? What more do you want to accomplish? I believe whole heartedly in this industry or people-profits-planet. My talents lie in creative marketing, education, speaking & research
