Midwestern Hemp Database Shares Best Practices

Illinois Extension researchers collected data from more than 180 hemp growers over the past two years and are sharing that production information with growers through the Midwestern Hemp Database. The interactive database is a project of Michigan State, University of Illinois, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Purdue University, and it offers growers information about production practices and hemp cultivars. It’s updated weekly during the growing season. In particular, the database identifies cultivars that are likely to comply with state and federal regulations limiting cannabinoid levels.
