While hemp growers in Latin America & Southeast Asia continue to look for hemp varieties that will thrive, companies in northern “hemp zones” are advancing with fiber and grain initiatives, says Hana Gabrielova in this audio-visual presentation hosted by HempToday. Hana discusses seed selection and procurement, and the potential for European Union certified hemp varieties in the USA, and talks about hemp growing at tropical latitudes. Whatever your plans might be this year, you need to think about the entire supply chain, end products and markets before you begin, says the veteran Czech hemp expert whose company, Hempoint, recently marked its 10th anniversary.
