According to Chan, the hemp industry will require plant clones for cultivation to meet future demand. He cited farmers in Kentucky facing the challenge of a hemp boom, stating, “With at least 42,000 acres of hemp expected to be planted in Kentucky and considering an average plant density per acre of well over 1,000 farmers in Kentucky will need hundreds of millions of clones over the coming years.”

Hemp clones ( are ready to plant, with the same genetics and phenotypes as the mother plant. The clones need no extra inputs, such as growing first indoors or in a greenhouse setting. SGMD is committed to providing the necessary supplies for supporting the micropropagation process of creating hemp plant clones (
