08 Nov North Carolina Extension Offering Industrial Hemp Information
North Carolina Extension educators are supporting producers of industrial hemp by sharing information from the second year of a pilot research program in the state. Because hemp hasn’t been grown in the state for decades, producers are struggling to find how best to grow the crop. Extension specialists and agents are conducting their own experiments at agricultural experiment stations, and participants in the state’s pilot program must conduct research on their crops and report the results. NC State Extension provides an online industrial hemp portal with news, events, and more about growing hemp.
