RALEIGH, N.C. — The Western NC Hemp Growers meeting will be held via Zoom on February 17, 2021 starting at 5 p.m. There have been several other regional hemp meetings this winter that have focused on NC State led research and provided information on insect and disease control, drying, and economics of production.
Those meetings have been recorded and we will provide links to them so you can view them also. But this meeting will feature WNC hemp farmers, several processors, and a fiber industry rep as our primary speakers. Hemp production and marketing in western NC is a bit different from the rest of the state and we thought it was important for you to hear from those who are in the industry. They have promised to share the good and the bad.
You must register in advance for this meeting. Please click on this Eventbrite link to register. We will keep that page updated as the program develops. This meeting is organized by NC Extension personnel in western NC.
