Nathaniel is an experienced hemp grower and business owner involved in the development of innovative products and developing market opportunities.
His role in the BHA is coordinating research projects, including the Innovative Farmer x BHA field lab in which farmer members within the Alliance are actively measuring and monitoring the effect of hemp cultivation on soil health, carbon sequestration and biodiversity. This project is ongoing until the end of 2023 and aims to develop a standardized methodology to roll out to the wider hemp growing community. Whilst hemp is scheduled as a narcotic, we are very restricted, but by gathering real tangible data on the impact of growing the crop, we can argue for the inclusion of hemp as an agricultural crop and recognition within the ELMS.
This session delves into some of the current and future market opportunities for domestic hemp that are driving growth in the industry. Join our experienced panel as they discuss the practicalities of a climate-positive value chain and how farmers can tap into this novel cash crop.
