About Murray Industrial Hemp

Exploring the viability, excited by the outcomes.

The Murray Industrial Hemp journey began in 2020 when Western Murray Land Improvement Group (WMLIG) united farmers to explore new industries, aligning with community feedback on water availability, agricultural diversification, and economic resilience.

The community emphasised diversification, innovation, and partnership as the key to growth and resilience.

A hemp cluster group was then formed, engaging 15 farmers to explore opportunities in the hemp value chain. 

Development of Hemp Projects align to NSW Government Strategy

The investment in industrial hemp aligns closely with the NSW Government’s Regional Investment Strategy by promoting economic diversification, creating jobs, fostering sustainable agriculture, encouraging community collaboration, supporting innovation, and enhancing resilience to climate-related challenges.

The initiative reflects a strategic approach to regional development in alignment with the governments overarching goals.
