Industrial Hemp Research (1.5 hr)

This tour will showcase Penn State's first industrial hemp project in more than 60 years.

We will discuss some of the crop management issues to consider in the hemp production and see some trials that evaluate several varieties of hemp being grown for seed. Participants will also be able to evaluate some hemp produced with no-tillage and also look at the impacts of seeding rates, planting dates, and fertilizer rates on commercial hemp production. We will also get an update on potential markets for the crop.
