About this Session

Production considerations for hemp in the Southeast

Presented by: Eric Ray Walker, Director of Science and Innovation, Genamera

Presented by: Kadie Britt, Graduate Research Assistant, Virginia Tech

Presented by: Robert Gray, Kentucky Farmer: Hemp

Hemp is a new crop to United States agriculture and there is still very little documented information in regards to successful crop growth, production, and pest management. Although acreage is increasing exponentially and hemp is a popular crop throughout the nation, significant production and marketing challenges still exist. Growers need reliable information to aid their success. The objective of this presentation is to provide attendees with nonbiased information, critical considerations, and helpful tips that will help attendees decide whether or not to produce hemp, and if so, how to maximize their chances for successful production and marketing of the crop.
