Farmer and Crop Scientist Melissa Nelson Focuses on Farmers to Advance U.S. Hemp Industry
By Elizabeth Lunt
Farmer and crop scientist Melissa Nelson spends a lot of her time on the phone with other farmers, helping them understand how to grow hemp. It’s her job – or one of them – but she doesn’t charge for her services. Her goal is to teach farmers how to grow hemp and to advance the industry in the United States.
Nelson says many of the farmers she works with have been farming for decades and often just need to know how to set the machines to grow hemp successfully. From the farm in Great Bend, Kansas, that Nelson runs with brothers Aaron and Richard Baldwin, fourth-generation farmers, Nelson has educated hundreds of farmers about hemp.
