The first greenhouse hemp was cultivated by Hellenic Cannabis Company in Messinia.
On an area of three acres there is an experiment carried out, the results of which will be evaluated after harvesting, about 100 days later.
The objective of the company is to export all the raw material, while among the immediate plans of the company, according to Giorgos Perakakis, is the cultivation to become hydroponic.
It should be pointed out that the process of sowing was attended by Panagiotis Alevras, head of the Department of Rural Development of Messinia (former ΚΕΠΠΥΕΛ), and agronomists.
