Hemp industry groups seek feedback on possible checkoff program

Hemp industry groups want to hear from producers and farmers about whether they would support having a national checkoff program to raise money for industry research and promotion.

The National Industrial Hemp Council and the Hemp Industries Association launched the survey and are collecting responses until Dec. 15.

Checkoffs exist for nearly a dozen U.S. commodities, and in the case of the dairy industry, the money it raised helped launch the now-famous “Got Milk?” campaign.

The survey can be taken here.
