A recent US court case filing illustrates the importance of working with a seed supplier that you know, trust and knows the international market.
A recent US court case filing illustrates the importance of working with a seed supplier that you know and trust.
Currently in the US a CBD producer based in Kentucky is suing a Oregon hemp seed seller for $44 million a lawsuit says.
The plaintiff, a Kentucky-based company that produces CBD has filed a $44 million lawsuit against the Oregon company it claims sold it nearly worthless hemp seeds that ruined a massive 2019 crop.
Elemental Processing of Lexington, Kentucky, claims their growing plans tanked when HP Farms of Troutdale OR sold them more than 6 million seeds that were mostly “male” instead of “feminized,” as promised.
The suit notes that male seeds sell for less than a penny each while feminized seed costs as must as $1 each because female plants produce a CBD-rich flower. According to the suit, the presence of male plants also prevents female plants from flowering.
The lawsuit states it was only after the Kentucky company had distributed the hemp seeds from Oregon to various farmers and those farmers’ crops had sprouted that the company learned the seeds were male and not female. “The farmers had no choice but to plow under the plants,” the lawsuit alleges
Could the same thing happen to European growers as
regulation begins to take a hold in countries throughout the region?
Luckily to combat the issue Elemental Processing of Lexington has with their supplier there are companies now operating in the market like UK based, The Vault , who take a far more professional approach to seed supply not just for their local and regional market but for international customers too.
