During the event, researchers and specialists from the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture will discuss topics related to agronomic research, economic research, the latest regulatory guidelines and potential developing markets.
At the end of each day, meeting participants will be able to ask questions of the day’s speakers during a round table session.
The program begins at 10 a.m. EST and lasts until noon each day. Current and prospective hemp growers, industry representatives, extension professionals and researchers are invited to participate in the free meeting.
