There has never been a more crucial time to equip farms with a new rotation option. NWG is proud of our Agronomic Excellence Program and the success farmers have seen on their farms by adding hemp into their rotations. Embarking on adding a new crop has a learning curve, and NWG is with producers every step of the way.
Having produced hemp since 2014, NWG brings learned experience from across the US to each new season and are happy to share our expertise so producers can avoid problems and reap the highest potential yields.
With every purchase of NWG seed, producers not only access genetics backed by the longest running US hemp breeding and seed production program, they also receive personalized support from experienced agronomists.
