Hemp report encouraging for region
The Industrial Hemp Taskforce has released its interim report backing a trial site at SuniTAFE's Smart Farm.
The trial is a partnership between the local TAFE and Australian Primary Hemp to grow industrial hemp and collecting data on different low THC varieties.
Mildura MP ALI CUPPER says there are so many uses for the product and if the trial's successful she's hoping a production facility can be locally based.
