On this week's show we talk to Benjamin Brimlow and Gregg Gnecco from IND HEMP in Fort Benton, Montana.
IND HEMP is an industrial hemp processor and ingredient supplier that contracts with about 30 grain farmers across Montana (and a few in Washington and Oregon) to supply their oil see processing facility. The company has recently broken ground on what will become one of the largest fiber processing plants in the country.
Brimlow is the lead agronomist for IND HEMP and he gets into lots of details about what it takes to grow hemp in Montana — from dryland fields to hail damage to a plague of grasshoppers — It’s truly a fascinating look at hemp farming in the West.
