Hemp is an old industrial crop; however recent changes in industrial hemp legislation in the U.S. (2014 and 2018 Farm Bills) have sparked interest in industrial hemp production. Hemp is grown for three basic purposes: fiber, seed, and cannabidiol oil, commonly referred to as CBD oil. This video covers the growing field hemp for fiber and seed production in northern Nevada. It discusses seven aspects: grower application, background on hemp production, field preparation, planting, irrigation, plant growth and pests, and harvesting.
