Industrial Hemp the Crop of the Future

Narrowmine News
The region is buzzing with talk of industrial hemp (iHemp) but potential growers have found it hard to separate fact from fiction regarding methods to grow the crop, existing markets and its potential returns.

Realising this disconnect, Regional Development Australia - Orana (RDA Orana) has worked in partnership with M2100 to bring Australia's iHemp industry leaders to the region, to address growers in Narromine on October 13.

"As a fibre, industrial hemp can be used in everything from horse bedding to simulated timber products like pallets" said RDA Orana's CEO, Felicity Taylor Edwards.
