BISMARCK, N.D. - Next year will be the second year of North Dakota's Department of Agriculture industrial hemp pilot program, and they're looking for interested applicants.
The 2014 farm bill allows production of industrial hemp for research purposes.
Interested farmers must submit a project proposal application. Proposals will be ranked by a committee appointed by Ag Commissioner Doug Goehring.
If chosen, applicants will need to submit a notarized application, a signed memorandum of understanding, fingerprints and fees.
You can find the applications on the Ag Department's website. They are due on Jan. 31.
