Become an Atalo Member Farmer! Our growers are the heart and soul, the driving force behind the resurgence of hemp as an agricultural commodity. Atalo is authorized by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) to help farmers become hemp growers. Our growers are participating in the KDA’s mission to research seed varieties, agronomics, processing and marketing channels for hemp-based products.
The Commonwealth of Kentucky has certain requirements in place to become qualified as a hemp grower. The application period for 2017 is closed, however, those interested in the 2018 season should carefully read the 2017 Policy Guidelines HERE. Application information for 2018 will be available in the fall of 2017.
We believe that, by working together, we will reestablish Kentucky’s reputation as “The Hemp Capital of the World™,” benefiting our farmers, processors, distributors and entrepreneurs. Kentucky is leading the movement to restore hemp as a cash crop. By selecting Atalo as your mentor and processor we can provide leadership in research development and commercialization of industrial hemp.
