Hi <<First Name>>,

Our reach is growing. We are happy to share that in the last 90 days, Global Hemp Association has reached 305,534 impressions on LinkedIn and 957,443 impressions on the GHA and FOH websites. If you would like to take adavantage of this reach join now

We are committed to continuing to grow the knowledge of Industrial hemp and be a resource to share the latest news and educate others who are new in the industry. 

The Seed Fiber Variety Trials are also ongoing to give farmers and processors more information about which varieties perform well in each location. This will help them decide which seeds are best for their operations.

Reasons to get your hands on this data before you place a non-performer in the ground.
  1.  You can make sure that the seeds you have are the right variety for your farm and location.
  2. You'll know exactly what kinds of soil conditions, weather patterns, and other factors will affect your crops over time so you can plan accordingly.
  3. You'll have time to make changes before planting season - and you may even be able to avoid COSTLY mistakes that would otherwise have been made without this information.

Do you want seed data before making a decision?
Curious about average yields or different genetics in your region?
Are certified seeds performing? 
All data will be available to sponsors by end year 2022. Sponsors start at $10,000 and are a tax-deductible donation to Friends of Hemp 501(c)(3) 

Data will be available to GHA Members in May 2023.

Have you ordered your  'Moving Hemp Forward. Together' t-shirt?!?

This t-shirt is made from Hemp fabric which is an excellent alternative to other fabrics in terms of sustainability, comfort, and durability. It's really, really warm and gets softer with time. It's made with 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton, so it's super soft and comfortable.

All proceeds support hemp research, consumer education, on-farm resources and standard development for the industry.
