Field Crops Virtual Breakfast focuses on industrial hemp production
MSU Extension’s Field Crop Virtual Breakfast on Aug. 15 will discuss productions aspect of industrial hemp in Michigan
Industrial hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) can be used to produce fiber, grain, biomass or non-intoxicating medicinal compounds, such as cannabidiol (CBD). As defined by law, industrial hemp has less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive component in marijuana. Recent changes in federal and state regulations have paved the way for U.S. commercial production of industrial hemp in 2020. Join us for our Field Crops Virtual Breakfast at 7 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019, via Zoom with Michigan State University Extension agronomist Kurt Thelen to learn about the production aspects of industrial hemp. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the broadcast. A weekly weather outlook will also be part of the broadcast with MSU agriculture climatologist Jeff Andresen.
