The US Hemp Growers is excited to be at the Nebraska Ag Expo. This gives us the much-needed opportunity to educate large acreage farmers and producers on the growing need for hemp fiber and grain production in the United States.

We will be taking this opportunity to discuss the hemp supply chain and the different areas we are seeing growth. We want to equip farmers with the information they need in order to seize this opportunity to use this as a rotational crop that will generate revenue for farmers and producers and help set the pricing standards in the United States.

Global Fiber Processing LLC. in collaboration with Formation Ag. will be at the show to discuss the hemp decortication facility in Colorado and plans to expand into the Midwest. Having a facility like this in the Midwest has tremendous opportunity for producers, and a big first step for farmers that are interested in growing for fiber. Our sessions will consist of panelists from all over the United States that are currently working in the fiber and grain industry.

Hemp related booths and seminars will be located in Pavilion 3 of the Lancaster Event Center.
