2019 is here and ATALO is poised to begin a successful hemp season. The Atalo Growers’ Group is the heart and soul of our company, the driving force behind the evolving industrial hemp industry. We pride ourselves on being farmer-centric and working with the finest growers in the nation. The unique Atalo System is an agronomic system that focuses on low-input, low-risk hemp farming. We boast three models for growers to choose from based on their individual farming operations.
As states across the nation enter the industrial hemp world, Kentucky is proud to be leading the way. Atalo is the most experienced hemp company in Kentucky. Our foundation is built on growers who are active in production agriculture. With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, opportunities are exciting for industrial hemp.
REQUIREMENTS to be an Atalo grower:
POTENTIAL BENEFITS for growers contracting with Atalo are:
Atalo will be hosting contracting and agronomy meetings in 5 locations to better suit travel needs of growers. NOTE: No pricing or contracts will be released until the meeting dates.
Growers who intend to contract with Atalo are required to attend one contract meeting and one agronomy meeting. You can choose which meetings and locations best suit your needs. If you need to attend a contracting meeting in one location and an agronomy meeting in another location, that is perfectly fine.

Now is the time to be planning. Please keep in mind it is vital to coordinate with neighboring hemp farmers to see which model they intend to grow. Atalo requires a 5 acre minimum commitment from growers. It is imperative that a crop planted with clones or feminized seed is not planted within at least a 5-mile radius of a crop containing seed/males. Atalo will source your planting materials or assist you with growing your own transplants. Atalo will disburse clones and feminized seed based on geographical feasibility.
All licensed growers in Kentucky and Tennessee are welcome to attend these meetings. If you have a neighbor who you would recommend as a quality, licensed grower, please feel free to invite them as well.
We look forward to working with each and every one of you. Atalo’s future is very bright and we are excited to have you become a part of the Atalo Growers’ Group! Please don’t hesitate to contact Atalo with any questions pertaining to these meetings.
