South Australia to allow industrial hemp production

February 27, 2017 |

Victoria was the first state to allow hemp production in 1998, followed but all other states except for South Australia and the Northern Territory. Though the industry acknowledges that it will take some time to get it up and running, following in the foot steps of Canada and the US, that should the policy be implemented soon then crop trials could already be started this year.
