Advocacy groups in the UK have shown little interest in hemp, and little has been done to encourage domestic production. According to APPG, there are only about 20 farmers in the UK growing hemp on a total of 800 hectares.

Reaching 220,000 hectares in five years represents an increase of 27,000%. For context, consider the following. Hemp fields across the EU, where farmers have worked for decades to build an industry, cover around 50,000 hectares at most. U.S. farmers say they can only harvest 13,000 hectares (33,500 acres) in 2021, but officials have been working to prepare the industrial hemp playing field for nearly a decade.
