CSU location approved to begin testing hemp

The Durango Herald
Amber waves of hemp in Southwest Colorado have not materialized since production was legalized under Amendment 64 in 2012.

But the state’s 158 registered hemp growers have managed to plant about 1,000 acres and will now get research help from Colorado State University. Sharing of campus seed stock has legal hurdles, however.

This summer, CSU was approved for field testing of hemp by the Colorado Department of Agriculture under a historic provision in the 2014 Farm Bill.
And its Southwest Colorado research center in Yellow Jacket expects to participate.
