North Dakota Ag Department Looking for Industrial Hemp Research Participants

The North Dakota Department of Agriculture announced Tuesday that it’s looking for participants for an industrial hemp program.

In a press release, state Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said the department was seeking applicants to participate in the program “for the purposes of agricultural or academic research.”

“Industrial hemp may only be grown in North Dakota through the North Dakota Department of Agriculture’s pilot program or by institutions of higher education,” he stated.

The 2014 U.S. farm bill allows state agriculture departments to grow hemp for research purposes.

North Dakota applicants must submit a proposal to be reviewed by a committee, appointed by Goehring. The deadline is January 1st; application instructions can be found here.
