18-Greenhouse Hemp Farm Opening in Eastern Arizona
November 7, 2019 by erfa5t8
One Under Farms will soon be growing hemp in St. Johns, Arizona, a town near the border of New Mexico. The farm plans to employ 30 full-time employees by Dec 1, 2019.
The company says it has plans to build at least 18 greenhouses, WMIcentral reports. The industrial hemp plants will be grown for extraction purposes to make CBD casts and topicals.
By spring, One Under Farms expects to grow its staff to 75. There are no pre-requisites, but those with prior farming experience are preferred. The business did not provide how or when they will be holding task interviews.
St. Johns’ City Manager, Paul Ramsey, stated, “There is a favorable outlook on hemp in St. Johns, just for the truth that it produces jobs. It returns to an agricultural base that this neighborhood was established on. I dislike to speak for the council, however I would say that the majority are behind it and desire to see some brand-new market established here in our community.”
State authorities will examine the plants throughout their development cycle to ensure that they are not evaluating above 0.3% THC. The gos to will be random and unscheduled. Plants, according to some new USDA guidelines, need to be evaluated a minimum of 15 days prior to harvest.
” It’s not pot,” stated One Under Farms. “All industrial hemp has a percentage of THC in it. Studies have actually revealed that there’s no psychedelic effect with THC up until you reach two complete portion points (2%). So, our federal 0.3% [limit] is considerably lower than what we would ever experience to have a psychoactive effect.”
