Hemp Seed is a Hot Topic for ASTA

Cindy Zimmerman

American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) chairman Wayne Gale, Stokes Seeds, spent a lot of time answering questions about hemp seed at the recent National Association of Farm Broadcasting Trade Talk.

Gale says ASTA’s role is to provide information for the growing hemp industry to help the seed industry identify sources of quality seed “to ensure that the growers that the crop that they want.”

Seed industry interest in hemp is high and the upcoming ASTA CSS and Seed Expo 2019 will feature a session on Hemp Seed Opportunities & Challenges.
