Tired of the smell of the hemp and CBD oil fields? There's much going on behind the scenes. Farmers love it.“Unlike 90% (of what we grow here), it will be sold in California and not shipped 10,000 miles away. That’s why I love this crop,” commented one farmer. Others, not so much. Hemp is regulated by the county agricultural commissioner, who issues licenses to growers. Nearly 4,000 acres were approved for hemp cultivation this year, Williams said, but only 2,500 to 3,000 acres were actually planted. The new field crop may push out some peppers and lima bean production, but strawberries shouldn’t be affected, the agricultural commissioner said.
Strawberries grow almost year-round in the county’s Mediterranean climate, while hemp has a window between April and October.
