In 2016, there were 6 pilot participants who grew approximately 40 acres of hemp. This was a huge mile stone considering it was the first time hemp has been grown since the 1950’s.
In 2017, there were 47 applications received. Of those, 40 became pilot program certified and 33 were licensed hemp growers which totaled 56 fields. 46,017 pounds of industrial hemp seed was imported for the program. The pilot participants planted 1,210 acres throughout the state and were able to harvest 1,100 acres of hemp.

Unlike many shows, the US Hemp Growers Conference does a great job of attracting hemp growers, processors and CBD retailers in a very targeted manner, leading to high-level discussions with a focused group of individuals and businesses.
