Shawn and Kylee Geffert stand by their one-acre hemp crop that they are growing as part of the industrial hemp cultivation and research program.

Shawn and Kylee Geffert are right in the middle of harvesting corn. The long rows stand ready for the combine. In the distance one can see fields of soybeans from their property west of Iola.

But on a tiny one-acre plot of land, the couple has a unique crop, the only one of its kind in Allen County. 

The Gefferts are taking part in a research and cultivation program that allows them to grow hemp.
