He said with low crop prices in Wisconsin, hemp could be something Wisconsin farmers turn to as a new income option. “I think we have enough processing here in Wisconsin, both for the seeds and the oil production, as well as the fabric, from the stalk and the fiber side of it, that there would be plenty of use for it here in Wisconsin,” said Clark. Clark thinks more research would be needed to know how to grow industrial hemp and what its best uses are in the state. He said if the crop is approved for research, it could break up current crop rotations, reducing disease and insects. Clark added the thick crop naturally controls weeds, so few herbicides are needed. He said it does take a lot of nitrogen out of the soil, so fertilizer would be important for growth, but farmers already have a lot of the equipment needed to harvest industrial hemp since it can be combined and baled.
