Industrial Hemp

Record #:
Bertie County farmers are farming for industrial hemp through a pilot program sanctioned by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. The production of industrial hemp was made legal in 2015, as farmers are looking for alternative crops to grow. There is still much to learn about growing this new commodity, but industrial hemp may play a role in local farming’s future.
