LaMoure County (North Dakota) farmer one of four selected for N.D.'s industrial hemp program


For the first time ever a handful of farmers in North Dakota can raise industrial hemp.
A provision in the 24th Farm Bill gives authority to state departments to grow it for research purposes.
AgweekTV found a farmer in LaMoure County who jumped at the chance to be part of the state program.
Jamie Edwards applied to be part of the N.D. Department of Agriculture's industrial hemp pilot program.
Edwards and his father farm 25 miles south of Jamestown.
Only four farmers in the entire state were selected for the program. Jamie and his father were two of the four.
