Industrial Hemp: From Seed to Market

New York is one of many states that has adopted an Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program, as permitted by the 2014 Farm Bill. In an effort to provide an understanding of the industrial hemp market, as it stands today, Harvest NY compiled information from both primary and secondary sources of information. The contents within our whitepaper, which focus on the crop from seed to market, is heavily summarized, with links included to more in-depth reference data. The NYS Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program is being administered by the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets. Reference to their guidance document can be found HERE.
