CARRINGTON, N,D. — Chris Zenker drove from Gackle to a farm just north of Carrington Wednesday morning to pick up enough industrial hemp seed to plant 100 acres.

Zenker is one of 35 farmers and growers who received a special license from the North Dakota Department of Agriculture to grow industrial hemp for 2017.

"We heard it (industrial hemp) grows good on poor soils," Zenker said, "so we're going to try it on some poor soils and see how it does." Zenker said he is trying hemp as a way to introduce a different crop in the rotation. He said he also likes that hemp has the potential to be a cash crop.
