Officials in Indiana have warned farmers about unscrupulous hemp seed vendors they say are currently active in the U.S. state. Donald Robison, seed administrator at the Office of Indiana State Chemist (OISC), said growers have complained about paying for seed that is then not delivered, while other buyers have reported that seeds they purchased don’t match what’s on the label. Robison recommended those interested in growing hemp buy their planting seed from a list of permitted suppliers available on the OISC website. While it is legal to buy cultivation seed from non-permitted suppliers in Indiana, the purchaser is at greater risk in such transactions, OISC said. This is the first year hemp is being grown commercially in Indiana after previous research crops.
