Phytocannabinoid-rich biomass originator and processor Green Point Research recently completed the largest legal hemp harvest in Florida in more than 80 years. According to David Hasenauer, chief executive officer of Green Point Research, the company produced and planted their own seeds as a result of a project with Florida State University and managed to gather more than 500,000 hemp plants during the 110-acre harvest. This multi-day reaping is also part of a larger 150-acre company harvest. "Florida has a unique advantage to grow hemp because of the superior climate and the strength of the existing specialty crop market,” says Holly Bell, director of cannabis at the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. “The Sunshine State's diverse and robust agriculture supply chain is driven by farmers accustomed to making the type of adaptations needed to stabilize different crops, including nascent crops such as hemp. It was an honor to be a part of the State's largest hemp harvest in decades to see first-hand the quality results of Green Point Research's hard work, innovation, and close collaboration with our team and its research and development partners."
