Kentucky Farmer: Hemp
Since 2014, hemp production in the United States has increased dramatically due to high public interest in cannabidiol (CBD) and perceived high monetary returns from hemp for essential oils. While many people have successfully produced hemp in the southeastern U.S. over the last five years, significant production and marketing challenges exist. 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.
