    BRAWLEY — A local hemp grower is expressing grave concerns about proposed federal and state regulations that would shorten the amount of time allowed to harvest hemp after it has been sampled for laboratory testing.

    Primordia, which has grown and harvested more than 2,500 acres of hemp locally since late 2019, is calling on the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the state to amend its respective rules governing industrial hemp operations.
