Please join UW Extension, DATCP, and Michael Fields Agricultural Institute for the first in a series of webinars on industrial hemp production.
While serious interest about industrial hemp production exists across the state from all types of growers and producers, there has been limited information available to farmers on agronomic production methods.
The webinar will start with a discussion by DATCP on the ever-evolving legal regulations for production. Then presenters will lay out the agronomic basics for grain and fiber hemp separately from CBD hemp, with more of a focus placed on field prep and planting so growers can get as much information as possible before they put plants in the ground.
Time for questions will be allotted at the end of each presentation as well an hour at the end of the webinar for continued and general questions.
No registration is required, simply follow the link below to join the webinar. A recording will be made available to the public.
9:00-10am – DATCP Rules and Licensing – Melody Walker and Brenda Von Rueden, DATCP
10-11am Grain and fiber hemp production – Bryan Parr, Legacy Hemp
