This week, Kentucky Hempsters had the chance to check on a hemp field right outside of Owensboro, Kentucky. It was planted mid-June and then re-planted later that month after the crop took a pounding of 6 inches of upexpected rain.
"I don't think we can emphasize how terrible this season's weather has been," said co-founder of Kentucky Hempsters, Kirstin Bohnert. "We've had some of the most rain in history across the state."
Despite the initial seed delay, weather and re-planting - the crop looks healthy according to Bohnert. "Out of all the finola crops we've seen in Kentucky, this is by far the best. This farmer tended to the weeds and hand-picked them to ensure a prestine crop," she said.
