Grower adds hemp in bid to reap more profit from land - Chicago Tribune

Annette Wiles drove to Colorado recently and paid $5 apiece for 72 plants in each of four varieties that she’s since had planted in a Plattsmouth greenhouse. She and her husband, Bruce, own Midwest Hop Producers. It’s one of 10 growers randomly selected for the first year of the state’s Hemp Cultivation/Processing Research Program, which was established by a bill signed into law this past spring by Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts.
