5 Hemp Projects in USDA Climate Smart Commodities’ Second Tranche
By Jean Lotus, PanXchange
The U.S. Department of Agriculture dropped the second tranche of the total $3.5 billion Climate Smart Commodities grant announcements in December, and hemp is the focus of five grants funded for around $5 million each.
The grants will explore agricultural carbon-sequestration using biochar and soil microalgae and using hemp in bioplastics. Grants will also support small family farmers to grow fiber hemp and adopt climate smart practices that will reduce greenhouse gasses.
New Map Shows Processors, Other Businesses Along Hemp Fiber & Hurd Supply Chain
By Let’s Talk Hemp
The Hemp Industries Association last week announced the availability of a free searchable map intended to help farmers, manufacturers and other businesses along the hemp fiber and hurd supply chain in North America.
Given the challenges associated with storing and shipping large amounts of fiber hemp, farmers interested in growing hemp can use the map to determine if there is a business in their area that could potentially buy the crop. The first-of-its-kind map represents the culmination of months of work by the Hemp Industries Association, the Global Hemp Association, the Midwest Hemp Council and the US Hemp Building Association.
