Interested in growing Hemp? Are you confused about which one to go for? Grain or CBD? Worried about not having the experience? Come to this workshop to gain the knowledge you need to get started growing hemp. What are the varieties that are suitable? What is the right time to plant? How do the transplants compare with the clones? Do auto varieties reduce your field duration and produce more? We will also share the results of Michael Fields’ and others’ most recent field research on hemp, conducted in the Midwest, give you the most current knowledge of what to expect for hemp cultivation around southern WI. Workshop attendees will get to see Hemp transplants at different stages to help decide the right stage of transplanting and also leave with one page quick guides to aid with management decision making.
