Industrial Hemp Information Meeting

Fri 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM

As a stronghold for tobacco and cotton for centuries, North Carolina’s farmers have been searching for alternative crops in recent decades, as cotton production moves overseas and tobacco use has plummeted. While soybeans and corn remain strong, and North Carolina’s peanuts and sweet potatoes are a mainstay, many agricultural experts have been hoping that industrial hemp in North Carolina will provide a lifeline to struggling family farmers. This is an interest meeting, providing resources and information by experts in the field and growers who gave give insight into the regulations, laws and business practices.
