Cannabis grows well in Katherine

A NT government trial to grow marijuana at an undisclosed location in Katherine has met with success.

The NT Government is pleased with the success of growing a trial plot of medicinal marijuana in Katherine.

So much so that new laws might saw allow the commercial cultivation of the crop here.

The NT Government is expected to approve the creation of a commercial hemp industry by the end of the year.

The move follows other successful trials in southern states and Federal Government approval of the sale of medicinal marijuana.

Quoted on ABC Radio, Katherine Mayor Fay Miller said the success of the department trial proved the region's agricultural industry was up to the task.

"Obviously this is going to have long-term implications that are positive, so it's very, very encouraging," she told ABC.

"We're certainly in the preparations of getting ready for all growth and development ... and this is one of those future crops that will be very, very well catered for in Katherine."
