FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department of Agriculture is taking applications for farmers and processors who would like to participate in industrial hemp pilot projects next year.

Agriculture Commissioner James Comer says this year’s first round of pilot projects provided a large amount of data about production methods, seed varieties, harvesting and processing techniques and uses for harvested hemp. Now he says the state wants a wide scope of pilot projects next year to help prepare for eventual commercial hemp production open to all.

The application deadline is Jan. 1.

The application is available at https://www.kyagr.com/hemp and can be completed electronically and emailed to [email protected] or printed, completed and mailed to the department.
