Industrial Hemp Program

The College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences has obtained approval from the Industrial Hemp Commission (IHC) for a permit to grow industrial hemp for research purposes. 

Our research in the CAES will focus on the following:

  • Determining the varieties of hemp that will grow in various parts of the state.
  • Assessing soil and growing conditions
  • Investigating the use of hemp in new energy technologies
  • Exploring the various uses of hemp

We are happy to work with small-scale producers interested in growing industrial hemp. In order to work with the university, farmers must first apply for a permit. The application is available at the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services website (http://www.ncagr.gov/hemp/application.htm).

The IHC will soon have a program manager who will work directly with farmers on pilot projects. For more information about the permitting process, contact the commission at (919)707-3236.
