This talk will focus on hemp regulations involving licensing, seed labeling and regulatory compliance for those looking to get involved in this quickly growing and high demand industry. In addition the first time released results from the year end research survey will be revealed. These results will be a first ever listing of possible best practices in the growing of hemp, from agronomic practices, insect and disease issues to be aware of and the economic realities of hemp production. Areas that the research survey address are economics, engineering, entomology, agronomy, botany and plant pathology and chemistry. Hemp is a crop that had been illegal to grow in the US for nearly 80 years until the 2018 Farm Bill legalized it.
