North Carolina Industrial Hemp Commission Funded!
The NCIHA saw the next step to hemp production in NC sprout on May 11th, 2016 when $200,000 of non-state money, as required by Senate Bill 313, was presented to the Commissioner of Agriculture, Steve Troxler. Through the joint efforts of the NC Industrial Hemp Association and BioRegen Innovations Cooperative, the initial operating expenses of the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Commission have been funded. "We are excited about the possibility of a spring 2017 hemp crop but there is still a lot of work to be accomplished," said Commissioner Troxler during the meeting.
