South Dakota Industrial Hemp
Conference & Facility Tour

By Let’s Talk Hemp

Let’s Talk Hemp had the pleasure to sit down with Ken Myer, President of the South Dakota Hemp Association and Vice President of Complete Hemp Processing, to get some insight into what folks can expect at the event and where South Dakota stands as a leader in the US hemp industry.  

What are the key reasons why someone should attend the Complete Hemp Processing event in South Dakota?

According to USDA numbers, South Dakota harvested more acres of hemp than any other state last year and is on track to be number one again this year.  Most of these hemp acres are grown for fiber.  Two South Dakota decortication  companies, Complete Hemp Processing and Dakota Hemp, LLC are purchasing hemp grower’s fiber round and square bales at $300.00 a ton. And both companies offer contracts for growing hemp fiber. If your business needs hemp hurd and bast fiber, your business should be at our event. Especially, because South Dakota is just getting started.  More decortication facilities are planned and more acres of hemp will be grown next year.
