Hemp 2020 & Beyond
Needham’s Nursery & Hemp Pharm will present Hemp 2020 & Beyond, a discussion on the future of hemp. With the new USDA regulations coming, what will be the direction to take? We will have speakers from the hemp industry, TN Dept of Ag, TSU, and more. Last season was a confusing time to grow hemp here in TN. What does the future hold in store for the hemp industry? Many of the hemp genetics grown in 2019 will test over the THC allowed with the new/updated USDA guide. The 2020 growing season could be the last one, as we currently know it.
The first part of the discussion will focus on hemp and its future in TN. The second part will be devoted to how to grow hemp successfully in TN.
Speakers:-Joe Kirkpatrick– President/Chief Lobbyist with Tennessee Growers Coalition
-Brick Bishop - Plant Inspector - TN Department of Agriculture
-Bill Wall - Benmar Extractions
