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.
