The Kentucky Department of Agriculture has licensed these companies, listed in alphabetical order, as processors/handlers in its Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program. The list includes only license holders that elected to have their contact information publicized by KDA. Company focus areas are grain, fiber, floral material, broker and laboratory analysis.
Some may still be in the planning phase. Industrial hemp in Kentucky remains a controlled substance outside the KDA Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program. See KRS 260.858, Section (3). Visit kyagr.com/hemp for information about obtaining a hemp license.
