On June 19, we planted our first industrial hemp research study at the Mountain Research Station in Waynesville, NC. The replicated study includes 15 varieties planted using the drill (shown above) or broadcast seeded by hand and rolled with a cultipacker. We also planted large swaths of each variety side-by-side for easy comparison.
