The national acreage of industrial hemp has grown about 25 per cent annually since 2009 and now Alberta Agriculture has released a handbook Industrial Hemp Enterprise on what’s involved in growing hemp.

“If you’re new to hemp and interested in growing it, the publication walks you through the steps you need to know such as how to grow it, where to grow it, where to access seeds, what are the markets like and pretty much anything one needs to know,” said Connie Kehler, program manager of the Good Agriculture and Collection Practices program.

Industrial Hemp Enterprise is available online at or by calling 780-427-0391.
