Industrial Hemp Webinar Series #2

Please join UW Extension, DATCP, and Michael Fields Agricultural Institute for the second in a series of webinars on industrial hemp production on August 7th, 2019 from 4 – 7pm.
This webinar builds from prior presentations and will address current research being conducted around the state, DATCP sampling protocol and timelines, grower questions from this season, and important information regarding harvest technique and end of season markets. The webinar will be split into 2 1.5 hours sessions with time for questions at the end of each section to address written in questions (you can write in questions at https://uwmadison.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bf1kskJWdZp3DWl) as well as live audience questions. The agenda is below and a link to join the webinar is here: LINK (coming)

Additionally, the webinar will be recorded, and following editing, released to the public if you cannot join us on the 7th. You will be able to find it at the state’s hemp website (https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/hemp) where the recordings for the first webinar on April 18th is available as well as other videos and documents regarding herbicide legality, pollen drift, and much more.
