Penn State Extension and the Penn State Southeast Agricultural Research and Extension Center (SEAREC) are hosting an informational session for farmers, marketers,industry representatives and others interested in the potential for hemp growing and processing here in the state.
Hemp is a crop which was once widely grown in central PA, and had a wide variety of uses from food to feed to fiber. We will discuss some of the traditional uses of hemp products as well as potential new uses such as CBDs, Nutraceuticals, Essential Oils and much more. You can see hemp research plots in the field, and learn from Penn State, Pa Dept. of Ag. and hemp industry professionals.
